This edition of over 200 documents issued by three different bishops contains a wealth of information on the religious, ecclesiastical and parochial life of the diocese of Salisbury, which comprised three counties (Berkshire, Dorset, and Wiltshire). There is an increasing diversity of types of actum, including grants of indulgence and significations to the king of recalcitrant excommunicates. English Episcopal Acta 37, Salisbury 1263-1297 (978-0-19-726464-5) publishes a further 248 documents from this diocese.
a worthy addition to the indispensable and highly successful Acta project and a major contribution to our understanding of the thirteenth-century English church. David Lepine, Southern History
