Giraldi Cambrensis opera by Giraldus( Book )

117 editions published between 1861 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite a frustrated ecclesiastical career - his ongoing failure to secure the See of St David's embittered him - Giraldus Cambrensis (Gerald of Wales, Gerald de Barry, c.1146-1220/23) composed many remarkable literary works, initially while employed as a royal clerk for Henry II and, subsequently, in semi-retirement in Lincoln. Eight volumes of his works were compiled as part of the Rolls Series of British medieval material. Volume 7, edited by clergyman and historian James F. Dimock (1810-76) and published in 1877, contains Giraldus' lives of Saint Remigius, the first Bishop of Lincoln, and his later successor Saint Hugh, a contemporary of Giraldus himself. The Latin text, in Giraldus' vigorous and anecdotal style, gives a vivid picture of the ecclesiastical world of medieval Britain and its historical background, while the English editorial preface illuminates nineteenth-century interest in the period
Fr. Rogeri Bacon Opera quædam hactenus inedita. Vol. I. containing I.--Opus tertium. II.--Opus minus. III.--Compendium philosophiæ by Roger Bacon( Book )

60 editions published between 1859 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Franciscan Roger Bacon (c.1214-92?) was one of the most significant intellectuals of the thirteenth century. His most important work was the Opus Majus of 1267 (also available in this series). The works included in this volume, edited by J. S. Brewer, had not previously been published, and only one volume of the unpublished works ever appeared, because of Brewer's other commitments. The Opus Minus was a précis of the larger work, written at the same time. The Opus Tertium, written the following year, was Bacon's attempt to cover topics which he felt had been omitted, or inadequately explained, in the previous versions; it also includes autobiographical information. Neither the Opus Minus or Opus Tertium survive in their entirety, but Brewer includes all the parts known in 1859. The Compendium Philosophiae deals with Bacon's wide-ranging intellectual interests in all aspects of medieval scholarship
The reign of Henry VIII from his accession to the death of Wolsey by J. S Brewer( Book )

21 editions published between 1884 and 1968 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A history of the reign of Henry VIII as it relates to Cardinal Wolsey and their joint political endeavors. At the beginning of Henry's reign, Wolsey was one of his most trusted advisors. It's even thought that Wolsey, at one time, had a greater hand in the politics of England than the King did. In the end, Wolsey's connection with the Papacy and Rome and his failure to procure Henry his divorce from Katherine, combined with many supposed plots to undermine the King, resulted in Wolsey being arrested and stripped of all titles

Monumenta Franciscana by Thomas( Book )

36 editions published between 1858 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two-volume work forms part of a series of scholarly editions of chronicles and other original documents relating to British history from the Roman invasion to the reign of Henry VIII, commissioned by the Master of the Rolls in the mid-nineteenth century. The documents are reprinted in Latin or Middle English, with summaries of their content. Each volume contains a thorough and invaluable preface, placing the documents in historical context and describing the location and condition of the original manuscripts. Volume 2, edited by Richard Howlett and published in 1882, is concerned with the 'decadence and fall of the Franciscans'. The documents relate to the emerging conflict of English Minorites with other monastic orders, such as the Benedictines of Westminster in 1290; divisions within the Order itself; and the impact of the religious persecutions of the Reformation. The book also includes an appendix of related original documents
