This volume contains over 150 acta of Bishops Pandulph Verraclo, Thomas Blundeville and William Raleigh. Main themes are the ordination of vicarages in parish churches appropriated to monasteries (described in more detail than hitherto), and the campaign to extend episcopal patronage in order to compensate for the lack of cathedral prebends. There is much interesting detail on the clergy of Norfolk and Suffolk, including Italian incumbents; and the relationship between the bishops and their court on the one hand and the crown on the other is also traced in some detail. Overall, three bishops from a background in papal and royal administration can be seen to have devoted considerable attention to their large diocese.
