909 – The Bishopric of Devon

In the year 909 Dunstan, future Archbishop of Canterbury, was born in the West Country. As Abbot of Glastonbury he reformed monasticism. Later, as scholar, artist, craftsman, musician, leader and indeed politician, he was a powerful influence on the tenth century church.

The great King Alfred had died ten years before. The Danish threat had not gone away, but the kingdom was stronger and self-confident. It was a time of consolidation and flowering in the Church.

By the end of the tenth century we can get a snapshot picture of what the church was like.
