Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dorchester Abbey is a Church of England parish church in Dorchester on Thames, Oxfordshire, about 8 miles southeast of Oxford. It was formerly a Norman abbey church and was built on the site of a Saxon cathedral. Alexander, Bishop of Lincoln founded Dorchester Abbey in 1140 for the Arrouaisian Order of Augustinian canons. Dorchester had been a Roman town and was later adopted by the Mercians. It had been the seat of a bishopric from AD 634 when Pope Honorius I had sent Saint Birinus, its first bishop, to that district, until 1085 when the See of Mercia was transferred to Lincoln.
