HOW TRADITION WORKS: A Meme-Based Cultural Poetics of the Anglo-Saxon Tenth Century
Examines the ways traditions are created, constituted, modified, and recognized. Expanding and revising "memetic" theory, the study analyzes the culture of the tenth-century English Benedictine Reform. Drout shows how this flowering of culture can be traced to the reliance by Anglo-Saxon monks upon unchanging written rules--the Rule of St. Benedict and the Regularis Concordia.
