English Episcopal Acta. By publishing the output of the bishops’ chanceries, this series sheds light on the development of administrative and legal practice in the medieval Church.

English Episcopal Acta VII. Hereford 1079 – 1234, ed. Julia Barrow (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1993). English Episcopal Acta X. Bath and Wells 1061 – 1205, ed. Frances . Ramsey (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1995). An examination of Domesday Book reveals that the episcopal Church controlled 8% of the kingdom’s landed wealth in 1066. The king was certainly one of the main sources of income for the bishop through gift and endowment.

A further volume in the highly acclaimed series, English Episcopal Acta, this edition makes available a very important source, not only for the study of twelfth-century episcopal administration but also for local historians working on medieval Herefordshire, an area hitherto sparsely provided with printed primary sources. This volume is the only edition specifically devoted to the acta of the bishops of Hereford between the consecration of Bishop Robert of Lotharingia in 1079 and the death of Bishop Hugh Foliot in 1234. An extensive introduction provides biographies of the bishops during this period, a survey of the evolution of the episcopal household, and a full diplomatic and palaeographical analysis of the charters.
