English Episcopal Acta

Editions of legal and administrative documents issued by the bishops of medieval England.

By publishing the output of the bishops’ chanceries, this series sheds light on the development of administrative and legal practice in the medieval Church. Innovations and changes in the underlying principles of ecclesiastical government can only be detected by studying the diplomatic form.

General Editor: Professor Philippa M Hoskin, University of Cambridge.

Volumes are published by Oxford University Press. Some older volumes are available from Oxbow Books.


“A triumphant success . . . a splendid contribution to our resources for the history of the twelfth and early thirteenth century.” Antiquaries Journal

“One of the most ambitious enterprises ever launched in the field of medieval English ecclesiastical history has already come of age.” Journal of Ecclesiastical History
