Historia Anglorum : the history of the English people by Henry( Book )

24 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and Latin and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first complete edition and translation of the Historia Anglorum (History of the English People) by Henry, archdeacon of Huntingdon (c.1088-c.1157). The main narrative covers the history of England from the invasions of Julius Caesar down to the accession of King Henry II in 1154, and includes the only contemporary account of the entire reign of King Stephen (1135-54). In the influential circle of successive bishops of Lincoln, Henry was often at the centre of political life - a practical man whose consciousness of the world extended far beyond the limits of his archdeaconry, a visitor to France and Rome. His work is a major source for events in England and Normandy in his lifetime. Henry's pages are filled with good stories, including the first written record of Cnut and the waves, and of Henry's death from a surfeit of lampreys. The final two books consist of poems that show Henry to be one of the finest of Anglo-Latin poets. Henry's work has never before been published in its entirety. The 1879 edition in the Rolls series provided only a Latin text, omitted three books and other sections of the text, and failed to take account of several manuscripts. The critical edition in the present volume shows the author's successive revisions and continuations of his text. It is offered with parallel translation and historical notes. The introduction provides a fresh appraisal of Henry's career, incorporates new discoveries about his family origins and education, and assesses his importance as a poet and historian
Chronicle of the Abbey of Bury St Edmunds by Iocelinus( Book )

17 editions published between 1989 and 2017 in English and held by 525 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
Tradition and change : essays in honour of Marjorie Chibnall presented by her friends on the occasion of her seventieth birthday by Diana Eleanor Greenway( Book )

13 editions published between 1985 and 2002 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book of the foundation of Walden Monastery by Diana Greenway( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and Multiple languages and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The monastery of Walden was founded c.1136 by Geoffrey de Mandeville, a prominent baron in the civil war of Stephen's reign. Its site just outside the town of Saffron Walden in Essex is now occupied by the great Jacobean mansion known as Audley End House. The Book of the Foundation of Walden Monastery, written by a Walden monk soon after 1203, is here printed in its entirety for the first time. This lively narrative relates the history of the Mandeville earls of Essex and the inheritance of their lands and title by King John's justiciar, Geoffrey fitz Peter. The monk-author describes the development of the priory at Walden and its elevation to the status of a Benedictine abbey in 1190, and in the final section of the work he traces the consequent conflict with Geoffrey fitz Peter, concluding the story with the death of Abbot Reginald in 1200 or 1203. The interest of The Book of the Foundation of Walden Monastery extends far beyond the local: the editors' introduction and notes establish its position as a valuable historical source with a wide-ranging reference."--Jacket
Dialogus de Scaccario = The course of the Exchequer by Richardus( Book )

14 editions published in 1983 in English and Latin and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fasti Ecclesiae Anglicanae, 1066-1300 by John Le Neve( Book )

25 editions published between 1968 and 2003 in English and Latin and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The volumes in this series trace the process of re-organisation and reform that took place in the English cathedrals after the Norman conquest, with the building of new cathedrals, the establishment of new constitutions for their chapters, and the appointment of foreign clergy. In this period, when many documents are undated, the chronological framework provided by the careers of bishops, dignitaries, canons and cathedral priors, is an essential research tool for historians" --Publisher's website
Charters of the honour of Mowbray, 1107-1191 by Diana E Greenway( Book )

13 editions published between 1972 and 2006 in Latin and English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Early Yorkshire families by Charles Travis Clay( Book )

9 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1973, this collection of notes and documents relating to approximately 100 Yorkshire families who held land of the Crown in Yorkshire in the middle ages was compiled by the antiquary Sir Charles Travis Clay (1885-1978). Deeply interested in the history of his home county, he was held in high esteem for his editing of medieval charters, and the ten volumes of Early Yorkshire Charters that he edited between 1935 and 1965 (also reissued in this series as part of the complete thirteen-volume set) were regarded as a masterpiece. In Early Yorkshire Families, Clay's notes on each lineage establish its provenance, its genealogy, the origin of its land tenure (with further illustrative documents contained in the latter part of the work), and how land was held and transmitted. This work is an invaluable source of information for researchers interested in medieval Yorkshire or the feudal system generally
