This book is the first volume in a new venture, the Westminster Abbey Record Series, which aims to publish documents, calendars, lists and indexes from the Abbey's large and continuous archive of over a thousand years, making its contents available both to scholars and to a wider interested public. This edition of the earliest Chapter Act Book of the Dean and Chapter is an essential source for the impact of the Reformation at Westminster. The years covered in this volume show the business of setting up a reformed cathedral; the administration of the Abbey's large estate is also well illustrated, including the relations with the powerful courtiers and politicians who were among the Abbey's tenants. Dr CHARLES KNIGHTON gained his Ph.D. from Magdalene College, Cambridge.

C.S. Knighton

The post-Reformation history of the abbey has been seriously neglected... (this) edition is therefore to be greatly welcomed... a firm and indispensable foundation upon which further and more wide-ranging research can build. JOURNAL OF ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY(see also vol 2 - EHR)
