Church Dedications in Devonshire

Trans. Devon Assoc., vol. 35 (1903), pp. 746-758.

Prepared by Michael Steer

Churches under the authority of a bishop (e.g., Orthodox, Roman Catholic, or Anglican) are usually dedicated by the bishop in a ceremony that used to be called 'consecration', but is now called 'dedication'. It is often assumed that parish church dedications are ancient, but many of those in use today are inventions of the 18th and 19th centuries, and the original dedications were entirely different. In Devon, however, about 70% of church dedications have been traced to the period between the Norman Conquest and the end of the 16th century. This paper, presented at the Association's July 1903 Sidmouth meeting provides detailed information on the interesting dedication topic, as well as on the lives of several of the Saints. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. The Internet Archive makes available, in its Community Texts Collection (originally known as Open Source Books), books that have been digitised by Google from a number of libraries. These are books on which copyright has expired, and are available free for educational and research use. This rare book was produced from a copy held by the University of Michigan Library, and is available from the Internet Archive.
