About this product
- DescriptionThis two-volume work forms part of a series of scholarly editions, commissioned by the Master of the Rolls, of unpublished chronicles and other original documents relating to Early English history. The documents are reprinted in Latin or Middle English, and are summarised by the editors, whose invaluable prefaces places them in historical context and describe the location and condition of the original manuscripts. Volume 1 (1858) contains documents relating to the earliest establishment of the Franciscan Order. The treatise De adventu of Thomas of Eccleston (fl. c.1231-58), is the only eyewitness source of the settlement and progress of the friars in England; and the letters of the rewned Franciscan scholar, Adam de Marisco (or Marsh, c.1200-59), are important examples of early Franciscan organisation. The volume closes with the register of the establishment of the Mirites in London, and an appendix of other original documents.
