Abstract :
Briefly enumerates the surviving elements of the Romanesque church, followed by more detailed discussion of the form of the principal crypt piers and the segmental quadrant pilasters to the radiating chapels. Finally, in the context of the rivalry which existed between the abbot of Bury and the bishop of East Anglia, a comparison is made with the eastern arm of Norwich Cathedral which proposes a possible explanation for the early change of plan of the axial chapel at Norwich. Provides further evidence of the political significance of major churches and demonstrates the immediacy of the transmission of ideas in architecture during the late 11th c. ;
