This translation of the "Registrum epistularum" of Gregory the Great, the first complete version in English, will provide all medievalists access to one of the most important documentary collections to have survived from the period. All fourteen books of the letters are presented in three volumes, each with a preface of its own but sharing the introduction found in the first volume.
