The latest volume in the rapidly expanding English Episcopal Acta series covers the ancient see of St Chad. The main theme of this book is how this poverty-stricken diocese was made viable in the twelfth century, with Chester, Coventry, and Lichfield each being tried as the principal location of the see. Some 80 texts are provided, along with a detailed introduction and seven appendices.
