Our volume for 2017, New Series 42, is the Calendar of Scottish Supplications to Rome volume vi, 1471-1492, edited by Alan Macquarrie, Roland J Tanner and the late Annie I Dunlop.
Dr Macquarrie writes: ‘This volume continues the series of the Calendar of Scottish Supplications to Rome whose first volume appeared under the imprint of the Scottish History Society in 1934. It covers the pontificates of Sixtus IV and Innocent VIII, and completes the series as far as the year 1492. It is hoped that this Calendar will provide a valuable source not just for ecclesiastical history, but also for legal, social and political history, during the reign of James III and the beginning of the reign of James IV.’
This completes the work begun by Dr Dunlop in the 1920s, but does not complete the Calendar Series, which the Society hopes to continue publishing over the course of the next few years.
