Chapter Summary

The Taxatio Ecclesiastica was a valuation of all church income, both temporal and spiritual, carried out in England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland in 1291-92. Pope Nicholas IV ordered the assessment so that a tenth of the income could be given to Edward I for the crusade he had promised to undertake. Robinson's investigation of the Taxatio for his study of the Augustinian canons demonstrated that because of the many inaccuracies and omissions in the assessment, the lists must be used with great caution. An examination of the information from the assessment on Plympton Priory's spiritualia, when compared with other sources such as the Valor Ecclesiasticus and Bishop Grandisson's confirmation of 1334, demonstrates that there are serious lacunae in the printed texts.
