About the Authors
  • James Raine (1830–96), canon of York, edited these Latin works relating to the diocese, covering the period from 650 to 1522. They were published in three volumes between 1879 and 1894. Volume 1 includes four lives of St Wilfrid (c.634–c.710) as well as lives of other early bishops. Raine's preface gives an account of the ecclesiastical history of York and of the manuscript sources he used. Volume 2 includes a twelfth-century history of the four bishops of York from 1070 to 1127 (with additions to 1153) by Hugh the Chantor, who was precentor of York. Volume 3 contains a miscellany of 176 charters, letters, wills, papal bulls and other documents, dating from 930 to 1522, extracted from the registers of the archbishops and the muniments of the dean and chapter. An index to all three volumes is also provided, along with English side-notes to the Latin text.
