The history of Christianity and of the church (and its flock) has been a rich field for scholarly endeavor almost from the time the faith became established in the 7th and 8th centuries. This article deals with the church in the centuries between the Norman Conquest (1066) and what we generally consider the end of the Middle Ages and of medieval Christianity (1500). It stops short of the Henrician Reformation of the 1530s, but it does consider the “old faith” in its last century of dominance. The citations in this bibliography are meant as advisory, with no attempt at complete coverage. Many works cited here may also be listed in a different Oxford Bibliographies article or even in more than one. The focus is primarily on the church as an institution, with attention to the major categories of church-related writing. Insofar as the sources for ecclesiastical history have been generally viewed as literature, they are not included in this entry, nor is much of the voluminous philosophical and theological writing of the post-Conquest period. There are other Oxford Bibliographies articles that cover aspects of the topic not treated here or not treated as extensively as they deserve. A general article on “Post-Conquest England” gives some background, and Oxford Bibliographies articles on “Benedictines after 1100,” “Canon Law,” and “Christian Mysticism” expand the horizons of this article.
