CHURCH COURT RECORDS: AN INTRODUCTION FOR FAMILY AND LOCAL HISTORIANS
Written by Anne Tarver.
Stock no. 1828017
Published by Phillimore & Co. Ltd.. 1st 1995. Slightly better than very good condition in a slightly better than very good dustwrapper.

The church courts have existed since the Middle Ages, summoning vast numbers of ordinary people to appear before the representatives of the bishop or archdeacon for the 'reformation of their souls and the correction of their manners'. This book provides an introdcution to these documents, which have been relatively neglected; not least because the earlier papers, before 1733, were written in Latin. Sometimes scandalous (the bawdy courts), sometimes serious, the causes can provide much local background material, through which we can hear people talking about their daily lives and problems, of particular interest to historians in genearal and local and family historians in particular. Blue cloth boards, gilt title to spine. ISBN: 0850339278. Personal bookplate to front endpaper. Else contents clean. Pictorial dustwrapper is slightly faded to spine and slightly scuffed.
