Notes

In the English medieval church, visitations by diocesan bishops or their deputies were made at regular intervals to every religious house (seventeen monasteries, priories and collegiate churches are included) or church under their jurisdiction. In the deaneries section (covering the eleven deaneries of the diocese), complaints and defects were noted in the comperta list for each church visited and responses and actions taken, in the following Acta section. An interesting survey of the diocese of Canterbury carried out at the end of the medieval period by William Warham, the last pre-Reformation archbishop (1503-32). Appendix II records his 1511 itinerary, the proceedings for each deanery taking place in a principal church within it.
