"These studies by several eminent scholars mark the 800th anniversary of the move to Lincoln by Saint Hugh, who was bishop there from 1186 to 1200. One of the most remarkable personalities of twelfth-century England, he stood out as a man of force, principle, sanctity, and wit at a time when the rule of the Angevin kings was leading to the crisis of Magna Carta." (from the publisher). "This is a thorough and exemplary piece of work." (Journal of Theological Studies)
