Episcopal Colleagues of Archbishop Thomas Becket by David Knowles

Book Description

First published in 1951, Professor Knowles introduces his subject with these words: 'On three decisive occasions at least - at Clarendon and Northampton in 1164, and for a third time in the autumn of 1169 - the bishops were called upon as a body - at Clarendon in association with the Archbishop, at Northampton and in 1169 in dissociation from him - to take their stand at a crisis of policy. Had they resolutely and unanimously opposed the King in 1164, or as unanimously fallen in with his wishes in 1169, the course of English church history would have been notably different...Concentration on the actions and words of the Archbishop alone, and the virtual relegation of his colleagues to the position of a chorus, if not of a conspiracy, has helped, in almost every account, to throw his figure out of historical perspective. It is only when we watch the attitude and consider the opinions of the other bishops, both before, during, and after the great meetings of 1163-4, that we can see how many elements of the controversy, and how many of the views expressed, were the common property of all, or at least of most, of the school-trained ecclesiastics of the day, and how many were peculiar to Archbishop Thomas.'

Books By Author David Knowles

Triumph TR6 by David Knowles Triumph TR6, Hardback (April 2016)

Tells the life story of Triumph TR6 in detail. Covering the design, development and manufacture of the car as well as its motorsport history, this title shows how this last bastion of traditional British sports car motoring went against the grain of troubled automotive times, outstripping its predecessors in sales and popularity.

MG V8 by David Knowles MG V8, Hardback (February 2013)

Tells stories of some of the most powerful and exciting cars ever to wear the evocative MG octagon badge.

MGF and TF by David Knowles MGF and TF, Hardback (September 2010)

In the wake of the demise of the MG Midget and MGB, there seemed little prospect for the MG badge beyond being used as a kind of 'GTi' badge for various Austins and Rovers. However, thanks to the determination of a few people, and an enduring affection in public hearts, the tale has had a happier ending. This title tells the story of that journey.

Heads of Religious Houses by David Knowles Heads of Religious Houses, Paperback (August 2009)

A reissue, with substantial corrections, of a classic research tool in medieval religious history.
