Bristol's medieval churches: Ss Philip & James
St Philip's and St James's, otherwise St Philip's Priory, formerly stood in the market place east of Bristol Castle, a market place whose shape has been preserved today in the width of the road leading up to the roundabout beyond which the church sits in its large yard. Like St James's Priory, therefore, it stands as an example of the frequent spatial association in medieval towns between exchange and religious ritual, including the witnessing of contracts and resolution of disputes.
