English Episcopal Acta, volume 45, edited by Brian Kemp
In 2005 the Academy published the 30th in its ambitious series of volumes containing the texts of all English episcopal acta to survive for the period between the Norman Conquest and the emergence of bishops’ registers during the course of the thirteenth century. Professor Barrie Dobson FBA, current Chairman of the English Episcopal Acta editorial committee, reviews the progress of this enterprise and indicates its importance for all branches of medieval studies.
The British Academy is publishing a volume of ‘Facsimiles of English Episcopal Acta, 1085-
1305’. The author, Dr Martin Brett, explains why it is so important to make available
images of these administrative documents.
