Recent research suggests there is a large quantity of surviving evidence for the liturgical texts written at Canterbury Cathedral in the central Middle Ages. A provisional list of manuscripts containing material for occasional rites, such as Candlemas, Palm Sunday and the dedication of churches is given and the reasons for thinking they contain evidence for Canterbury liturgy are presented. Some examples are given to illustrate their potential as sources of evidence for architectural historians, including for the policies of individual bishops, the fabric of the Cathedral, and changes in the performance of the liturgy.
