The legation of Guala Bicchieri of Vercelli, the third papal legate specifically appointed to England during the reign of King John, coincided with a turbulent period in England's history. Guala played a leading role in events, presiding over the resettlement of the English church after 1217, and is a figure of great importance in English political history. This volume assembles a comprehensive collection of his charters and letters. Dr Nicholas Vincent teaches at Christ Church, Canterbury.
