In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

The second half of the study adds to its usefulness as a textbook. Original letters of petition, along with dispensations, absolutions and declarations are reproduced in Latin and in translation. Each document is representative of a class of supplication or privilege, and each is preceded by an explanation of context and content. Digital photographs of the original manuscripts are presented in series at the end of the book, and they are also included on an accompanying CD. With their superior qualities of resolution, these digital images are valuable to student and teacher alike.
