Our Miscellany this year covers a wide range of topics.
Our Miscellany this year, ranges across the centuries. From
the thirteenth century Michael Robson looks at William de Calverley
(c.1275-1319); a notable Franciscan Friar.
Whilst still retaining a medieval theme John Dixon reveals some details about surprising survivors of the Black Death in Leeds.
In contrast, Michael Collinson examines love and marriage in Elizabethan Headingley.
The typhus epidemic of 1847 is the theme of two articles. Helen Kennally examines the impact on the town in general and Gillian Figures investigates the life of the Anglican curate, William Monck, who died whilst ministering to his flock during the crisis.
Another cleric, the Revd Robert Aitken, a Catholic Evangelical, considered by Roy Yates, completes our selection.
We have continued to include book reviews and in addition have added a comprehensive general bibliography of books and articles on the city’s history.
