Nineteen studies in English regarding the culture, liturgy and legal institutions of the medieval church in the Latin West. The central theme concerns church councils and synods, emphasizing the conciliar corpus and studies acts, procedure, and canonical status, particularly in the 13th century. This work includes discussion of a number of liturgical manuscripts relating to ceremonials carried out at these councils, and an examination of the clerical and legal culture of Dante and his intended readers. Other studies focus on the origins of French clerical taxation and the conflict between Boniface VIII and Philip the Fair; a new dating for the "Rule of Benedict"; a revised chronology of the archbishops of York; and clarification of the relationship between the chronicle of Roger Wendover and that of Matthew Paris.
