Essays in Honour of J.R. Maddicott

Edited by Nigel Saul and Nicholas Vincent

  • Author
Newly edited documents and commentaries published in honour of one of our foremost historians of English medieval political society

Different from most festschriften, this wide-ranging volume brings together a rich collection of newly edited documents accompanied by commentaries which both set them in context and highlight their importance for historians of medieval England.

Among the many topics covered are the Magna Carta rebellion, the Baronial Wars of the 1260s, the feeding of the royal household, the estates of the thirteenth-century nobility, gentry material culture as revealed by inventories, the workings of the law in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, and local political life in Richard II's reign. The volume will be published jointly with the Pipe Roll Society, and the distinguished team of contributors will include both friends and former pupils of the honorand.
