Scope and Content St Rule's Church, St Andrews, Fife St Rule's (or St Regulus') Church dates from the 11th or 12th centuries, and was the first church of the Augustinian Priory. Scholars have not reached agreement on the period of its foundation, though recent work argues strongly for an 11th-century date. The tower of St Rule's rises to 33m and is of a type which was probably common in pre-Norman Britain. It originally stood in the centre of the church of which survives only the eastern part, or sanctuary, which housed the relics of St Andrew. There was a religious community at St Andrews by the mid 8th century, and a bishop by the mid 10th century. The Augustinian canons, who replaced the original community in around 1125, flourished until the Reformation. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
