About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1937, this book contains a biography of Bartholomew of Exeter, one of the few bishops who supported Thomas Becket in his quarrel with Henry II. Some of his letters from the Pope, who used him as a judge delegate, are included in the volume, as is the Latin text of Bartholomew's Penetential, which deals with breaches of canon law and the penalties prescribed. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in English church history and the relations between the English monarchy and the Catholic Church.
