Innocent III : leader of Europe, 1198-1216 by Jane E Sayers( Book )

30 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and Italian and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Innocent III (r.1198--1216) has been considered the greatest pope of the high Middle Ages: he launched the Fourth Crusade, sent an army against the Albigensians, convened the Fourth Lateran Council, and in his struggle for the supremacy of the spiritual over the temporal power, excommunicated both King John and the Emperor Otto IV. In him, many of the abiding concerns and contradictions of the medieval papacy are powerfully embodied. This study reassesses his life, achievements and impact, against their full European background
Chronicle of the Abbey of Bury St Edmunds by Jocelin( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 2017 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This narrative of events between the years 1173 and 1202--as recorded by Jocelin of Brakelond, a monk who lived in the abbey of Bury St. Edmunds, in the region of West Suffolk--affords many insights into the life of a medieval religious community. It depicts the daily worship in the abbey church and the beliefs and values shared by the monks, as well as the whispered conversations, rumors, and disagreements within the cloister--and the bustling life of the market-town of Bury, just outside the abbey walls. --From publisher's description
Papal government and England during the pontificate of Honorius III (1216-1227) by Jane E Sayers( Book )

18 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of the administrative 'revolution' of the thirteenth-century papacy investigates the background and career of Honorius III, who was deeply involved in the developing administration of Chamber and Chancery from the late twelfth century, and reveals a picture of evolution rather than revolution in the papal offices of state. Honorius's Chancery is subjected to a vigorous examination. Valuable appendices list all the known papal scribes and provide diplomatic commentaries. Tables indicate details about the registers and the registrative system. The central machinery is shown in action, particularly in dealing with English affairs and petitioners and Honorius's place in the development of canon law is discussed in relation to the English background and experience.--

Law and records in medieval England : studies on the medieval papacy, monasteries and records by Jane E Sayers( Book )

18 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first six essays deal with the application and administration of canon law. England in the medieval period existed under two laws - the law of the state and the law of the church ... The second group of essays that have been selected concern records - their compilation, use and retention."--Preface, p. [vii]
Original Papal documents in the Lambeth Palace library; a catalogue by Lambeth Palace Library( Book )

13 editions published in 1967 in English and Latin and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History of the Abbey of Evesham by Thomas( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2019 in English and Latin and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Evesham History is one of the last important thirteenth-century texts to be translated. This is also the first completely new edition of the Latin since that of 1863." "The author, Thomas of Marlborough, was an educated and much travelled man and his work was written not so much in terms of a chronicle but as a history of the lawsuit between the monastery at Evesham and the Bishop of Worcester over the Bishop's right to visit or inspect the community. The case began in England, but was finally taken to Rome and battled out with much legal argument before Pope Innocent III's curia." "Much of the History is an eye-witness account. It shows the development of canon law at this period and illustrates aspects of England's relationship with the papacy during King John's reign, including the period of the Interdict. It is valuable too for the light it sheds into the mind of its author, a Benedictine monk, who had pursued a career at Oxford before entering the community. It tells us much about institutional pride and of the use of earlier archives to help the case." "In telling the story of the community of Evesham from its foundation by St. Ecgwine in the eighth century, Thomas incorporated the work of earlier Evesham historians including the twelfth-century Prior Dominic who was responsible for the Life and Miracles of St. Ecgwine. Marlborough also produced a most vivid and personal account of the tyranny of the scandalous Abbot Norreis and of the sufferings of the convent. He went on to recount the return of law and order to the community of Evesham, and the election of a new abbot with whom he attended the Fourth Lateran Council. The edition concludes with the death of Thomas as abbot in 1236."--BOOK JACKET
Original papal documents in England and Wales from the accession of Pope Innocent III to the death of Pope Benedict XI (1198-1304) by Jane E Sayers( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and Latin and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The medieval popes conducted a vigorous correspondence with monarchs, clergy, and lay people all over western Europe. Streams of applicants made their way to the papal court for confirmations of rights and concessions, and on some occasions to get justice. In this volume over a thousand surviving letters have been brought together, analysed, and discussed for the first time. They provide important insights not only into the activities of the papal court but also into the aspirations and desires of the petitioners."--Jacket
