Justice and grace : private petitioning and the English Parliament in the late Middle Ages by Gwilym Dodd( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This broad-ranging new study - the first of its kind - examines the key role of the late medieval English parliament in hearing and determining private petitions between c. 1270-1450. Until now historians have focused on the political and financial significance of the medieval parliament. This book offers a ground-breaking re-evaluation placing emphasis on parliament as crucial interface between the king and his subjects by offering the latter direct access to royal justice and grace. Consideration is given to how petitions were written and why petitioners sought redress specifically in parliament. The study makes an important contribution to our wider understanding of late medieval English government and its ability to redress local difficulties, as well as the nature of local society and the problems that confronted individuals and communities."--Jacket

6 editions published in 2003 in English and English, Middle and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Having seized the throne from his cousin Richard II in 1399, Henry Bolingbroke, the first nobleman to be made king of England since the twelfth century, faced the remarkable challenge of securing his power and authority over a kingdom that was divided and in turmoil. This collection of essays - the first such collection focusing specifically on the reign of the first Lancastrian king - by some of the leading historians of late medieval England, takes a fresh look at the crucial but neglected first years of Henry IV's reign, examining how Henry met and overcame the challenges which his usurpation created. The topics covered include a reappraisal of the events surrounding the revolution of 1399; Henry's relations with his northern magnates; the Yorkshire rising of 1405; the 'Long Parliament' of 1406 and the nature and purpose of the king's council. This collection adds significantly to an understanding of the character of Henry IV, as well as the circumstances in which he ruled, and will be essential for anyone with an interest in late medieval English political history. Dr. Gwilym Dodd is lecturer in history at the University of Nottingham; Dr.; Douglas Biggs teaches at the Department of history at Waldorf College. The contributors include: M. Arvanigian, Michael J. Bennett, Douglas Biggs, Joel Burden, Gwilym Dodd, Anthony Goodman, Andy King, Cynthia J. Neville, A.J. Tuck, and Simon K. Walker

"Medieval Petitions provides an innovative study of the mechanics, politics and culture of petitioning in the middle ages. In addition to important and wide-ranging studies of the ancient world and the medieval papacy, it focuses particularly on petitions to the English crown in the later middle ages, drawing on a major collection of documents made newly accessible to research in the National Archives." "Offering vivid new insights into judicial conventions and the legal creativity spawned by political crisis, these papers offer a closely integrated assessment of current scholarship and new research on these most fascinating and revealing of medieval social texts."--Jacket
Henry V : new interpretations by Gwilym Dodd( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henry V (1413-22) is widely acclaimed as the most successful late medieval English king. In his short reign of nine and a half years, he re-imposed the rule of law, made the crown solvent, decisively crushed heresy, achieved a momentous victory at the battle of Agincourt (1415), and negotiated a remarkably favourable settlement for the English over the French in the Treaty of Troyes (1420). Above all, he restored the reputation of the English monarchy and united the English people behind the crown following decades of upheaval and political turmoil. But who was the man behind these achievements? What explains his success? How did he acquire such a glorious reputation? The ground-breaking essays contained in this volume provide the first concerted investigation of these questions in over two decades. Contributions range broadly across the period of Henry's life, including his early years as Prince of Wales. They consider how Henry raised the money to fund his military campaigns and how his subjects responded to these financial exactions; how he secured royal authority in the localities and cultivated support within the political community; and how he consolidated his rule in France and earned for himself a reputation as the archetypal late medieval warrior king. Overall, the contributions provide new insights and a much better understanding of how Henry achieved this epithet. Gwilym Dodd is an Associate Professor in the Department of History, University of Nottingham. Contributors: Christopher Allmand, Mark Arvanigian, Michael Bennett, Anne Curry, Gwilym Dodd, Maureen Jurkowski, Alison K. McHardy, Neil Murphy, W. Mark Ormrod, Jenny Stratford, Craig Taylor."--Page 4 cover

Fourteenth century England by James Bothwell( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The wide-ranging studies collected here reflect the latest concerns of and trends in fourteenth-century research, including work on politics, the law, religion, and chronicle writing. The lively (and controversial) debate around the death of Edward II, and the brief but eventful career of John of Eltham, earl of Cornwall, receive detailed treatment, as does the theory and implementation of both the law of treason in England and high status execution in Ireland. There is an investigation of the often overlooked, yet ever present, lesser parish clergy of pre-Black Death England, along with the notable connections between Roman remains and craft guild piety in fourteenth-century York. There are also chapters shedding new light on fourteenth-century chronicles: one examines the St Albans chronicle through the prism of chivalric culture, another analyses the importance of the Chester Annals of 1385-8 in the writing culture of the Midlands. Introduced with this volume is a new section on "Notes and Documents"; re-examined here is an often-cited letter from the reign of Richard II and the problematic, yet crucial, issue of its authorship and dating
