Abstract :
There are sufficient links with the Order of Cluny to suggest that it was the arrival of abbot Peter Moraunt and his train, ca.1141, that made possible the conception of the scheme for the porch entrance, executed in the late 1140s or 1150s, which united their Cluniac past with the Anglo-Saxon past of Malmesbury. The narrative poem Occupatio by S. Odo, abbot of Cluny from 927 to 942, gives a scheme of the history of salvation which could have inspired the sculpture. There is evidence that influences from Malmesbury were transferred to Yorkshire in the late 1150s. ;
