Saint Hugh, bishop of Lincoln from 1186 to 1200, was one of the most remarkable personalities of 12th-century England. To mark the 800th anniversary of his move to Lincoln, several eminent scholars have here contributed essays on how his life related to the ideals of the Carthusian Order, how he ruled his diocese, what kind of impact his sanctity had on English political and social life, and how he was viewed and venerated in the period after his death.
