This volume contains the acta of three bishops of London: Richard of Ely, William de Ste. M'ere-'Eglise, and Eustace of Fauconberg. Both Richard and Eustace saw service as royal treasurer; indeed Richard wrote the handbook on Exchequer practice, the Dialogus de Scaccario. William on the other hand spearheaded the papal campaign against King John during the General Interdict.
."..a comprehensive and well-edited scholarly edition of fundamental importance for a much broader movement of English history in this period than the title of the book would suggest."--The Catholic Historical Review
