Riassunto: St Wulfstan was the longest-surviving English bishop remaining in office after the Norman Conquest. He played a fundamental role in beginning the "conquest" of the invaders by the English, by transmitting to the new French hierarchy of church and state the values of the English reform movement. He was also an exemplary diocesan bishop in Worcestershire, the troubled frontier region between the Celtic, Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Norman peoples. His well-documented activities provide important evidence for the social history of the period. This book is designed to be both an account of the life of St Wulfstan and a social history of the late Anglo-Saxon period, providing a revealing perspective on the country during the 11th century. Wulfstan is one of the very few figures of the time for whom the source material is sufficiently rich to provide the basis for a full biography.
