The convocation records of the Churches of England and Ireland are the principal source of our information about the administration of those churches from middle ages until modern times. They contain the minutes of clergy synods,the legislation passed by them, tax assessments imposed by the king on the clergy, and accounts of the great debates about religious reformation; they also include records of heresy trials in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries,many of them connected with the spread of Lollardy. However, they have never before been edited or published in full, and their publication as a complete set of documents provides a valuable resource for scholarship.
This volume contains a complete collection of early Manx ecclesiastical statutes and the convocation records, which include the details of the translation of the Bible into Manx. The volume also has a complete list of the Manx clergy arranged both alphabetically and by parish.
"This grand undertaking will probably leave ecclesiastical historians in Bray's debt for years, perhaps centuries." SIXTEENTH CENTURY JOURNAL
"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
