About this item

This volume presents the first scholarly edition of the earliest surviving Acta of the Scottish bishops from the late eleventh and twelfth centuries. It comprises a valuable source for the religious history of the medieval British Isles, as well as shedding valuable light on subjects such as place-names, landholding and administrative history. Scattered across numerous archives and libraries, the volume brings these texts together in a single volume for the first time. As well as the texts of the Acta themselves, the edition provides full critical commentary and annotation. An extensive introduction provides in-depth analysis of the Scottish episcopacy of the period as well as the Acta; there is also a list of lost Acta, episcopal absences from Scotland and full indices of persons, places, and subjects.
