Visitation Articles and Injunctions of the early Stuart Church, I, 1603-25, ed. Kenneth Fincham, 1994. Reprinted 1998.

'Sets a standard of excellence which will gain the society a high reputation....A rich quarry for historians with a range of interests.. a major achievement in the scholarly editing of a set of documents which have for much too long been inaccessible to ecclesiastical and social historians and which they cannot afford to ignore.' - Journal of Ecclesiastical History.

The first of two volumes of visitation articles and injunctions, frequently used by historians as evidence of the priorities and concerns of church government, but never previously systematically examined. Centering on the church of James I, it contains sixty-six sets of articles, printed either in full or in collated form and including injunctions or charges issued during or after visitations.

Kenneth Fincham is senior lecturer in history at the University of Kent at Canterbury.
