Archbishop Roger effectively led the clerical opposition to Thomas Becket of Canterbury. When Becket was martyred in 1170 Roger was naturally vilified by Becket's numerous biographers. Yet no full-scale account of the career of Roger himself has ever been written. This collection of his charters - introduced by a `Life' - aims at least partially to fill this gap, and by showing how Roger administered his diocese, reveals another side of this enigmatic archbishop.

This is a welcome contribution to the invaluable English Episcopal Acta series and especially to the history of the metropolitan see of York ... full and scholarly introduction ... Sensibly, this edition was prepared with an eye to the preceding York volume, but is improved by the publication of full texts of all the acta, even those published elsewhere. This is very helpful since some two-thirds of the 140 acta survive in almost complete texts. ( Journal of Ecclesiastical History )
Dr Lovatt's texts are preceded by a comprehensive and helpful introduction ... The whole is a work of meticulous scholarship as well as a pleasure to use. ( Northern History )
To have full texts of the documents assembled in one place is invaluable ... Most acta are printed with significant notes; these will be of considerable value for local historians and others interested in the places and institutions mentioned ... The real value of the volume is located in the excellent notes to individual texts and in its contribution to the publication of a corpus of episcopal acta. ( English Historical Review )
