Calendar of Papal Registers Now Complete

Jonathan Blaney, 22 December 2009

The Calendar of Papal Registers relating to Great Britain and Ireland is now complete. These 14 volumes cover the period 1198 to 1492, and thus the papacy of Innocent III through to that of Innocent VIII. These volumes provide a detailed insight into the relations of the papacy with Great Britain and Ireland in the medieval period.

Easier Annotation

Jonathan Blaney, 11 December 2009

We have now made our annotation tool easier to use. If a text is available for annotation you can still follow the old procedure, and click on "Comment on this article" at the top of the page. However it is now also possible to double click the text you wish to annotate with the left mouse button. Using this function inserts a hyperlink at the relevant point in the text, so that your annnotation will be more easily spotted by others. We therefore hope this change will improve the experience for readers, who will be alerted to the presence of an annotation for the piece of text they are reading.

Note that once you have added an annotation you can view it and all of your other annotations in My account > View your annotations.
