This edition of nearly 250 documents issued by six 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 36, Salisbury 1228-1262 , (978-0-19-726463-8) publishes a further 202 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
