Overview

Calendar of the Register of Adam de Orleton, Bishop of Worcester, 1327-1333 by R. M. Haines

Adam de Orleton (c.1275-1345), Bishop of Worcester, was absent from his diocese more than most medieval bishops, being engaged in affairs of state and diplomatic duties in London and France. Yet it is clear from his register that the routine administration of his diocese continued without interruption. The Register also reveals much of the nature of the man. Traditionally regarded as a self-seeking revolutionary and regicide, Orleton emerges as a shrewd, energetic administrator and a determined upholder of episcopal rights.
