Overview

This four-volume collection covers the church history of the islands of Great Britain and Ireland from AD 200 to 1295, which spans from the Roman period to the Anglo-Saxon period. The collection is based upon the monumental Concilia Magnae Britanniae et Hiberniae written by David Wilkins, plus other sources that had arisen since its publication in 1737. Editors Arthur Haddon and William Stubbs arranged the documents in chronological order by each period and by national or local branches of the churches in Great Britain and Ireland. The documents cover the divisions and combinations of the churches, present letters and decrees, and include the memorials of Saint Patrick. This collection is ideal for those who are interested in the history of the church in the British and Irish islands.

About the Editors

Arthur West Haddan (1816–1873) was an English churchman and academic with High Church Anglican views. He was ordained as deacon in 1840 and as a priest in 1842. He was dean of Trinity College in 1841, became vice-president in 1848, and was engaged in the work for the Library of Anglo-Catholic Theology. Haddan wrote for The Guardian, the High Church Weekly, and sent reviews to the Christian Remembrancer.

William Stubbs (1825–1901) was an influential English historian and academic with High Church Anglican views. He founded the systematic study of English medieval constitutional history. He was regius professor of history at the University of Oxford, bishop of Chester, and bishop of Oxford. He is known for his 19-volume medieval English chronicles, which he contributed between 1864 and 1889 to the Rolls Series, a major collection of British and Irish historical materials and primary sources. His other publications include Select Charters and Other Illustrations of English Constitutional History from the Earliest Times to the Reign of Edward the First, which quickly established itself as a textbook.
