This publication investigates how bishops deployed present and punishment to regulate their administrative subordinates in thirteenth-century England. Bishops had few powerful avenues to be had to them for disciplining their clerks and barely pursued them, who prefer to safe their provider and loyalty via rewards. the executive present used to be the benefice, usually granted for all times. Episcopal directors' safety of tenure in those benefices, despite the fact that, made them unfastened brokers, permitting them to move from diocese to diocese or perhaps go away management altogether; they didn't represent a status episcopal civil carrier. This tenuous bureaucratic dating made the non-public courting among bishop and clerk extra vital. eventually, many bishops communicated by way of friendship with their directors, who replied with expressions of devotion. Michael Burger's research brings jointly ecclesiastical, social, felony and cultural historical past, generating the 1st synoptic research of thirteenth-century English diocesan management in many years. His examine offers an ecclesiastical counterpoint to varied reports of bastard feudalism in secular contexts.
