The biographical and historical works of Eadmer, secretary of Saint Anselm, Archbishop of Canterbury, look back to the Anglo-Saxon past and reflect contemporary realities of Norman society. The Lives of Saints Oda, Dunstan and Oswald, newly edited here with a modern English translation, provide many insights into the wider political history of the pre- and post-Conquest periods, as well as important evidence for the cults of the saints in Canterbury and Worcester.
