This final volume of acta from Coventry covers the ecclesiastical careers of three very different bishops. Master Gerard Pucelle (1183-4) was one of the foremost early English canon law masters. Hugh de Nonant, a significant figure in the Longchamp dispute, was a 'curialis' par excellence, but is important here for his attempt to destroy the monastic cathedral at Coventry and replace it with seculars. Geoffrey Muschamp (1198-1208) was a protege of Geoffrey Plantagenet at York. Of some143 documents in this volume, 57 have never before been printed. Detailed appendices discuss various important sources of diocesan history. This volume of English Episcopal Acta complements Volumes 14 and 16, which together cover the period 1072-1182.
