Lives of Edward the Confessor by Henry Richards Luard( Book )

47 editions published between 1858 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume in the Rolls Series, published in 1858, includes three of the most important sources for the life of Edward the Confessor. The Vita Ædwardi was written c.1067 and was used as a source by notable chroniclers such as William of Malmesbury and Ailred of Rievaulx. The author declares his purpose in honouring Queen Edith, and the Godwin family are given prominence alongside Edward. Ailred completed a life of Edward for the translation of his relics in 1163, and the Vita Beati is 'a sort of abridged versification', produced for Henry VI c.1440. The Anglo-Norman poem, La Estoire de Seint Aedward, now attributed to Matthew Paris, was written c.1245 and the editor (Henry Luard, 1825-91) includes a translation, glossary and descriptions of the numerous illustrations at the head of the manuscript. These three sources remain vital to our understanding of the final years of the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom

Roberti Grosseteste episcopi quondam lincolniensis Epistolæ by Robert Grosseteste( Book )

39 editions published between 1861 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published as part of the Rolls Series in 1861, these collected letters date mainly from 1235-53, when, as bishop of Lincoln, their author presided over the largest diocese in England. Both a scientist and a theologian, Robert Grosseteste (c.1170-1253) boasts what the medieval historian R. W. Southern describes as 'a rarely paralleled breadth of intellectual interests'. His letters are invaluably illustrative of the social conditions of the time. He writes heatedly and earnestly on such topics as the laws concerning illegitimacy, the condition of the Jews and the liberties of the Church, with a violence of opinion that was 'balanced, indeed prompted, by a deep concern for the souls of ordinary people'. Henry Richards Luard (1825-91) puts Grosseteste's writing into context in his preface, while useful summaries of each letter in the contents list, and commentary provided in the side-notes, make the Latin text accessible to modern readers
