|Writ of Henry II (New College, Oxford, Takeley, No.136). From Salter, 1929, No.31.|
|So, this is a short document, but a rather tricky one. To really nail it, try doing a complete transcript. Use a pen and paper. Then check it against ours. Then write a short essay on the problems of being a senior churchman under Henry II. Don't send it to me though.|
|Click on each of the above to walk your way through the text. The transcript will appear in a separate window so that you can use it for reference at any time. These exercises are designed to guide you through the text, not test you, so you can cheat as much as you like.|
