This request is for a fellowship to support the final year of writing a co-authored book that examines the complex relationship between language, culture, and religion. In the 7th century, Christianity brought its own ritual language, Latin, along with literacy to the Anglo-Saxons in Britain. By the 9th century, the Anglo-Saxons were producing Latin service books interlaced with Old English, thereby maintaining the received Christian tradition while creating a distinctive vernacular practice. This project uses paleographic analysis of 9th-11th century manuscripts with mixed Old English and Latin prayers, rituals, and remedies to reveal how bilingual voices act as transcultural agents in response to a globalizing religion.
