People assume 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. This volume offers information about the history of English parish churches, providing an aspect on religion in England in all periods of history. Part One of the book gives a general history of Church dedications in England, from Roman times to the present day. Part Two provides a gazetteer of dedications in Cornwall and Devon, with dates and references, showing how far each one can be traced back, and what changes and misunderstandings have occurred. It offers evidence about the Cornish saints, and aims to provide a guide and model for similar research in other counties.
