The Register of Walter Bronescombe, Bishop of Exeter, 1258-1280: v.3

The earliest of the Exeter episcopal registers to survive, Bronescombe 's is a general register with a single chronological sequence of letters and memoranda on many aspects of diocesan administration. It also contains copies of charters by, among others, king Henry III and his brother Richard, King of the Romans, in his capacity as Earl of Cornwall. Volume one of this edition (which supersedes the unsatisfactory one of 1889) contains a substantial introduction and a full transcription of the Latin text of folios 2-26, with a modern translation on the facing pages; it will therefore be of value to students of medieval Latin as well as ecclesiastical and legal historians. O.F. Robinson is Douglas Professor of Roman Law at the University of Glasgow.
