Abstract

This session will examine three examples of clashes between lay and ecclesiastical interests. The first will examine the influence of the episcopal veteran reformer Walter de Cantelupe, Bishop of Worcester, on the younger bishops and clerics during the Baron’s War. The second will examine royal policies toward the bishops in a time of the rival claims to their loyalties from the papacy; the third will look at the Carthusian uses of the materials associated with the lay writings of Marjory Kempe.
