marifw. are clear and terse. It is only here and there that a point is missed (as on pp. 86,114), or a title given which is not warranted by the document (as on pp. 186, 253). Among the pieces here printed v we may call attention to the series relating to the powers of the archbishop over his formidable neighbour at Durham, the subjection of the Scottish bishops, intending the bishop of Orkney, to York, and the connexion of the see of the Isles with the monastery of Fumeas (pp. 58-60).

On p. 158 Innocent IV states that the bishop of Man is wont to be consecrated either at York or at Nidros, but, on account of the danger of the voyage to Norway, permits his consecration by the archbishop of York. In 1288, on account of the growth of population and the great size of the pnrighf? in York diocese, the archbishop is empowered to establish oratoriattcaptMaa (p. 148). In 1848 it is deplored that the office of the Blessed Virgin has fallen out of use at certain seasons in some churches, and orders are given for its revival (pp. 256-9). During the great plague many new burial grounds have to be consecrated (pp. 268-71). As for general affairs, the description of the barons' war in 1264 as hostiiem adventum alimdgenarwn (p. 185) is worth citing. Nor must we pass by the valuable account of the rebellion (if so it should be called) of Archbishop Scrope, which is printed from a manuscript at Lincoln College, Oxford, on pp. 288-91. Among ffmalinr matters of interest we note one more mention of ' Magiater Vaccarius' (p. 81), in addition to those which have been collected in this and preceding numbers of the ENGLISH HISTOBICAL REVIEW, and a catalogue of the library of Archbishop Henry Bowet (p. 814), which was rich in works of canon law.
