This introductory chapter sets out the purpose of the book, which is to provide a study of the exchanges between England and the Continent, and an analysis of parallels between those areas. The book is largely about ecclesiastical relationships and the type of cultural contact that arose mainly in an ecclesiastical milieu. The ultimate aim of the study is to examine the repercussions between late Anglo-Saxon and early Anglo–Norman England and the Continent on both English and European culture, spirituality, and art, taking into account every possible textual and visual testimony to their existence.
