ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

During the course of some twenty years of wide-ranging research in the preparation of this Register. I have been constantly encouraged by colleagues and friends and, indeed, also by strangers, many of whom have become friends. To all of them I remain profoundly grateful, whether it be for questions answered,information supplied, sections of text scrutinized, financial assistance provided, orhospitality extended. Here I can do no more than mention as many of them as possible by name isorder to express my thanks for their contributions to this project now completed and to acknowledge gratefully their share in bringing it to fruition.

Among those whom I consulted at various stages of the work and whowere unfailingly generous with their time and their constructive comments are Professor Christopher Brooke, Professor Barrie Dobson, Miss Barbara Harvey,and Professor David Smith. I am especially indebted to David Smith for reading through the entire text and suggesting many improvements. Others who have given valuable assistance whenever it was sought and have provided additional informationfrom their own research or have pointed my investigations in new directions are Dr Roger Bowers, Dr Peter Cunich, Dr Virginia Davis, Dr Antonia Gransden, Dr Diana Greenway, Professor Christopher Harper-Bill, Professor Rosalind Hill, Professor Donald Logan, Mr Alan Piper, Professor Jane Sayers, Dr Richard Sharpe, Dr Nicholas Vincent, and Professor Andrew Watson.

The librarians and archivists of several Cambridge colleges, namely Corpus Christi, Emmanuel, St John's, and Trinity, have kindly permitted me toconsult manuscripts in their care, and I have been the recipient of similar courtesiesfrom their Oxford counterparts at Corpus Christi, Pembroke, and New College. The Manuscripts Room of Cambridge University Library proved to be the ideal setting inwhich to complete the final drafts of this work, and I should like to record mygratitude of its superintendent Godfrey Waller for his many acts of kindness. Miss Jayne Ringrose also came to my rescue on a number of occasions when I was baffled by thehandwriting in a manuscript. At the Bodleian Library, Oxford, I have received helpfrom all members of the staff on my many visits to Duke Humfrey's library; they havealways responded to my requests and have come to my aid without delay. The assistantkeepers in the Department of Manuscripts in the British Library and theircounterparts in the Public Record Office in Chancery Lane have also been helpful in answering queries and resolving difficulties.

For assistance and advice in preparing the Bath section of this Register I am above all indebted to Dr R. W. Dunning, who read both the text and theintroduction and offered sound advice on a number of points where I had stumbled. Mr Holborn, librarian at Lincoln' Inn, kindly made available for my use theBath priory register, Mr Mayberry of the Somerset Record Office resolved one of my last-minute queries, and a former student of mine, Mrs Miriam Van Husen, used up part ofher holiday in returning to a state of subservience as my research assistant.

I am sure that I may speak for the Canterbury monks as well as formyself when I express my gratitude to all those who have shown interest in thissection of the Register
