Overview

Overview

Subjects ranging from legal history to college endowments reflect the current emphasis of research in medieval history on economic, religious and social themes.
Although the sources for the study of the medieval University of Cambridge are rich, this period of its history remains under-explored. This new collection of essays delves into the wealth of unpublished material buried in the University Archives, the collections of the University Library, the Ely diocesan records, and above all college archives, to emerge with fresh insights. Topics range from legal studies to the mendicant orders, and among the aspects of college history covered are landed endowments, the role of commoners, statutes and book ownership. Contributions reflect the current emphasis in medieval history research on economic, religious and social themes.
Contributors: JAMES A. BRUNDAGE, ALAN COBBAN, MALCOLM UNDERWOOD, CHRISTOPHER BROOKE, CATHERINE HALL, ROGER LOVAT, JAYNE RINGROSE, PATRICK ZUTSHI. (East Anglian)The history of the medieval University of Cambridge remains under-explored, especially in comparison with its rival Oxford. Delving into the wealth of unpublished material to be found in the University Archives, the collections of the University Library, the Ely diocesan records, and, most importantly, college archives, this new collection of essays emerges with fresh insights on a wide range of topics. Aspects of college history are particularly well covered, including their statutes, their dedications, and their effects as landowners upon Cambridge itself.
