medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

14 January's ODNB 'Life of the Day' was W. J. Courtenay's biography of 
Richard  Bury  [Aungerville]  (1287-1345), administrator and bishop of 
Durham.  A fairly typical ecclesiastic who rose through royal service, 
including embassies to Avignon (where he met Petrarch).  He compiled a 
formulary book, was a patron of scholars and, in his Philobiblon expressed 
his attitude to books and learning.

If you would like to see it, please email me before the end of the week.
