The first history of ecclesiastical jurisdiction in England that covers the period up to the removal of principal subjects inherited from the Middle Ages. Probate, marriage and divorce, tithes, defamation, and disciplinary prosecutions involving the laity are all covered. All disappeared from the church's courts during the mid-nineteenth century, and were taken over by the royal courts. The book traces the steps and reasons - large and small - by which this occurred.

It is a general history, summarizing the available evidence from all sources and offering critical commentary on previous historical work. It reads well, is full of valuable information, and will be an essential work of reference to any historian whose work touches on the ecclesiastical courts.' Law and History Review
