To a greater degree than perhaps any other comparable institution, the late medieval collegiate church at Beverley preserved within its constitution clear traces of its Anglo-Saxon origin. In his introduction the editor discusses the continuity of the Beverley tradition, and the subsequent developments which tend to obscure it. He also explores the nature of the clerical and other offices in the Minster and their various sources of income. The biographical notices provide information on individual careers. Details are given of preferment at Beverley, employment and family connections and other preferments and dignities.
