Historical papers and letters from the northern registers by James Raine( Book )

42 editions published between 1873 and 2012 in English and Latin and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Raine (1830-96) was chancellor and canon of York Minster and secretary of the Surtees Society, established by his father between 1854 and 1895. He edited this work for the Rolls Series in 1873. Covering the period 1265 to 1415, it illustrates the ecclesiastical history of the north of England through a vast collection of Latin documents taken from the episcopal registers of Carlisle, Durham and York. Material from Durham and Carlisle deals largely with England's tumultuous relationship with Scotland. Significant space is devoted to the mostly complete registers of York, a centre for parochial reform and the dissemination of royal instruction throughout the period covered. The registers of Peckham and Thoresby in particular demonstrate their dedication to the Church and diocese. Overall, the documents provide valuable insight into the northern sees, the personal history of bishops and sovereigns, and the general history of medieval England

York Minster has the largest cathedral library in England. The original library was established in the eighth century, but nothing survives from this period. A new collection was begun in 1414 when John Newton left books to the Minster, and a new library was erected. Further bequests followed - including in 1628 the important collection of Tobie Matthew, archbishop of York - which reflect the religious controversies of the sixteenth century. Today the library contains some 120,000 items, of which more than 25,000 were printed before 1801. This catalogue, published in 1896, was compiled by James Raine (1830-96), chancellor of York Minster, a leading figure in the nineteenth-century restoration of the library. It contains an alphabetical list of most of the printed books that were then in the library, but does not include recent theological acquisitions or the bequest by Edward Hailstone (d.1890) of 10,000 items on Yorkshire

Historians of the church of york and its archbishops by James Raine( Book )

12 editions published between 1879 and 1980 in English and Latin and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Raine (1830-96), canon of York, edited in three volumes these Latin works relating to the diocese, covering the period from 650 to 1522. Volume 3, published in 1894, contains a miscellany of 176 charters, letters, wills, papal bulls and other documents, dating from 930 to 1522, extracted from the registers of the archbishops and the muniments of the dean and chapter. Only three date from before 1066. The lengthy struggle for the primacy between York and Canterbury, and between York and other dioceses such as Durham and Lincoln, is a regular cause of concern, and the archbishop of York also claimed the obedience of Scottish bishops. The volume ends with an inventory of the sumptuous jewels, plate and vestments belonging to the see at the beginning of the sixteenth century. An index to all three volumes is also provided, along with English side-notes to the Latin text
