ABSTRACTWhitby, Wilfrid, and Church-State Antagonismin Early Medieval BritainVance E. Woods, M.A.Mentor: Charles A. McDaniel, Ph.D.In 664, adherents of the Dionysian and Celtic-84 Easter tables gathered at the Northumbrian abbey of Whitby to debate the proper calculation of Easter. The decisionto adopt the former, with its connections to the papacy, has led many to frame thisencounter in terms of Roman religious imperialism and to posit a break between theecclesiastical culture of Northumbria prior to the Synod of Whitby and afterward. Thisstudy will propose a different interpretation of the change that took place in the Northumbrian Church after 664. Rather than focusing solely on matters of religion, this project will seek also to demonstrate Whitby’s political implications. Instead of the endof alienation between the Celtic Church and the balance of Christendom, the Synod of Whitby will be identified, in the person of its main protagonist Wilfrid, as the beginningof alienation between the Northumbrian state and the hierarchy of the Church.
