Records of Convocation: Sodor and Man

Edited by Gerald Bray

  • Description
  • Reviews
Complete in two volumes, the records of the Manx convocation cover the period from the 13th century to the present day.
Largely unpublished hitherto, the materials contained in The Records of Convocation have been drawn from a variety of sources. They make available, for the first time, the fullest possible account of the convocations which stood at the very heart of the nation's life throughout most of the medieval and early modern period. The Records of Convocation contain the minutes of clergy synods, the legislation passed by them tax assessments imposed by the king onthe clergy, and accounts of the great debates about religious reformation and reform.

The two volumes of records of the Manx convocation cover the period from 1229 to the present day, but they are of particular interest forthe eighteenth century, where they provide a remarkably full and detailed account of a vigorous period of ecclesiastical reform.
"The material, which is a reproduction of all available manuscripts, has been carefully edited with informative introductions and useful supplementary information. The evidence they provide would be valuable to any historian of Man, but also has much to offer to the general ecclesiastical and social historian. [...] These volumes provide a fascinating insight into the development of a clerical legislative body over nearly eight hundred years." ARCHIVES
