The name Denny[edit]

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

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)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]
