A Biographical Register of the University of Oxford, A.D. 1501 to 1540

Front Cover
Clarendon Press, 1974 - Oxfordshire (England) - 742 pages
This three-volume reference, originally published in 1957-59 and out of print since 1973, is the most exhaustive source of information available on the men who attended the University of Oxford prior to 1500, men "varying greatly in their attainments, fortune, and importance, who in the aggregate represent a very influential section of medieval society in these islands." The Register contains more than 12,000 entries arranged alphabetically that detail variant spellings of surnames; particulars of date of birth, place of origin, and parentage; and licenses to study, membership in colleges and halls, college offices held, courses of study and degrees, ordinations and licenses to preach, benefices obtained, ecclesiastical offices held, and careers after leaving the University.
