This chapter is a detailed study of the regime of Bishop Anthony Bek (1283–1311). It is, in part, a study of heavy lordship, that is, the development and exploitation of the bishops' powers over their subjects. It also reveals the strength of local community, and the increasing reach of the crown, and thus draws together the conclusions of the preceding chapters.

Keywords:   heavy lordship, local community, bishops, crown
