The medieval collegiate church was an adaptable institution, best known from the form it took in Oxford and Cambridge. But colleges outside the universities were very numerous before the Reformation, and included such foundations as Eton and Winchester, the aristocratic colleges at the castles of Arundel and Fotheringhay, and the royal chapels of St George at Windsor and St Stephen at Westminster. Colleges such as these owned distinctive libraries which speak of the intellectual ambition and the pastoral life of their communities of clergy. The evidence for collegiate libraries outside the universities has hitherto been little known, and indeed many of the booklists gathered here have been newly brought to light for this volume. Some of the lists are late enough to include printed books as well as manuscripts, such that this volume will make a significant contribution to knowledge of the diffusion of print in England as well as to the history of the later middle ages.
