The church in the mid IXth century

So the Church made sure that it was closely linked with
royalty and in the IXth century, Edmund’s son, Edgar (959-975), started to
reform the monasteries, and Cantebury, Sherban, Winchester and Worcester all
became monastic[монашеский] cathedrals. The church was well-inderved, the total
income of monasteries and nuneries by the early XIth century was far greater
than the income of the king. The Anglo-Saxon’s Church had long provided
missionaries, such as Bonyface and Wilbred to help to convert Germany and the
lower countries to Christianity. And that was the sign of great vitality of
English Christianity in set others to Scandinavia in the late 10th and the
early 11th centuries. This religious revival[возрождение] provided a literary
and cultural activity, which rebuilt itself in brilliant manuscript
illumination, and it was stonecarving and embroidery – so the stonecarving and
embroidery started in the early 11th century.

The Kingdom of Wessex had by now become what was later
termed the Old English Monarchy. This state was still very much centered on
Wessex, Ethelstan alone among the 10th century rulers and he spent much time in
Mercia. Wessex was administrated from its 4 partland shires: Hampshire,
Willshire, Dorset and Somerset – the regions, where the kings spent most of
their time. However, pretty relations of nationhood was indicated in 957, when
the Mercians and Northumbrians renounced eligence to Edward in favour of his
brother Edgar. The scheme was healed, although Edgar also became King of Wessex
on Edwin’s death in 959. The eligence of Northumbria to who never ruled at
Winchester remained uncertain until well into the 11th century.
