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

47 editions published between 1858 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 390 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 )

44 editions published between 1861 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 368 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

Matthaei parisiensis chronica majora : volume 5, ad 1248 to ad 1259 by Matthew Paris( )

8 editions published between 1872 and 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Church of England clergyman and fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, Henry Richards Luard (1825-91) edited a number of works in the Rolls Series, for which he was noted for the quality of his indexing and the depth of his commentary. This seven-volume work, first published between 1872 and 1883, has been hailed as one of the best editions in the series. It is a rich source for English history from the Creation to 1259, written by England's greatest medieval historian. Matthew Paris (c.1200-59) became a monk at St Albans in 1217 and had access to a wide variety of documents as an acquaintance of such men as Bishop Robert Grosseteste and King Henry III, whom he knew well. The Latin text of Volume 3, covering 1216-39, derives from the work of Roger of Wendover up to around 1235, where scholars have suggested Paris's own chronicle began
