The first history of ecclesiastical jurisdiction in England covers the period up to the removal of principal subjects inherited from the Middle Ages. Probate, marriage and divorce, tithes, defamation, and disciplinary prosecutions involving the laity are all covered. These all disappeared from the church's courts during the mid-nineteenth century and were taken over by the royal courts. The book traces the stepsand reasons - large and small - by which this occurred.--Jacket.
