This is the sixth of eight volumes containing the record of the
institutions performed in the archdeaconry of Lincoln by Oliver
Sutton, bishop of Lincoln from 1280 to 1299. As a scholar he
appears to have been competent rather than distinguished; but he
was a thoroughly good man, a trained canonist who was determined to
uphold the law, and an administrator at once efficient and humane.
For nearly twenty years he devoted himself almost completely to his
diocese, ruling it with unending patience and a determined sense of
justice. Among other fascinating details, his register describes
incidents in the course of which clerks were maltreated and
sometimes killed, rights of sanctuary violated and churches
desecrated by bloodshed.
