The name Denny[edit]

Isn't the odd name from its patron saint, Denis? Wetman 17:54, 2 May 2004 (UTC)

Sounds plausible. However, the relevant web page of The Corpus of ROMANESQUE SCULPTURE in Britain and Ireland (a highly detailed archaeological report, with lots of nice photos, that I just discovered) reckons that it was dedicated to SS James & Leonard. It is still possible that the Benedictines named it after Denis, but it was renamed later. -- Heron 19:35, 2 May 2004 (UTC)

Denny is derived from Daneia, the Romans used the site of Denny Abbey from the 2nd to the 4th century.--Lidos (talk) 21:57, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Assistance offered[edit]

I can provide information on this abbey and museum, with which I am closely involved as a volunteer.--Lidos (talk) 21:04, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
