Críticas: This fascinating collection of papers explores the institution in all its diversity. THE CHURCH TIMES (An) important collection of essays (and) a stimulating, comprehensive, and long-overdue survey of the college as well as its role and influence. (...) Together, the essays in this volume form an invaluable and most welcome contribution to our understanding of the late-medieval English college and its extensive sphere of influence. The volume succeeds in helping us reappraise the light in which this secular institution has traditionally been viewed and (it is to be hoped) will reintegrate it into our wider understanding and consideration of religious communities and structures in the later Middle Ages. CATHOLIC HISTORICAL REVIEW As a themed volume on the late medieval secular college it is both long overdue and most welcome. (.) The quality of the essays is consistently good and they are full of intrinsic interest. THE RICARDIAN (The editors) deserve our thanks not only for raising the profile of these institutions but for doing so in a way which emphasises (.) the flexibility and adaptability of the collegiate form.
