Overview

Overview

Completes the register of Walter Langton, a leading figure in political life at the time.
Langton's register is important for two reasons: it is the earliest extant register for the medieval diocese of Coventry and Lichfield, and it has shed new light on the life of one of the period's key political figures (Langton was treasurer of Edward I and briefly of Edward II, suspended from episcopal office by Pope Boniface VIII and twice imprisoned). This volume completes the calendar of the register; it chiefly comprises ordination lists, but also contains charters confirming Langton's paternity.
JILL HUGHES is a Research Fellow at the University of St Andrews.
