Abstract
Was there a connection between St. Mauritius and the oldest church in Dalby and what is the evidence for such a supposition? And, if such a connection can be established, what can be concluded about its impact on the formation and character of the ecclesiastical setting of early medieval Dalby?



The idea about a connection between St. Mauritius and the oldest church in Dalby was introduced by the archaeologist Erik Cinthio. A main source for his hypothesis was a few references found in the capitulary of the cathedral chapter of St. Laurentius in Lund (c. 1120).

The idea about a connection between St. Mauritius and the oldest church in Dalby was introduced by the archaeologist Erik Cinthio. A main source for his hypothesis was a few references found in the capitulary of the cathedral chapter of St. Laurentius in Lund (c. 1120). As both St. Laurentius and St. Mauritius were popular as patron saints of rulers and churches in the Holy Roman Empire, Cinthio argued that this strengthened the already established idea of a strong German influence upon the oldest cathedrals in Lund and Dalby.



In this article I examine if and how the hypothesis about a connection between St. Mauritius and the oldest church in Dalby can be maintained. The written evidence that may support such a scenario will be identified and the patronage of St. Mauritius and its impact, in general and in particular, and on the formation and character of the oldest ecclesiastical community in Dalby will be discussed.



My conclusion is that no relation between St. Mauritius and the oldest church in Dalby can be established, whereas a such a connection can be found in Lund. (Less)
