    This study of Anglo-papal relations during the 14th century focuses on the forms and structures of diplomatic communication, rather than its content and 'end-products' such as alliances and treaties. The author applies theories of international relations and draws on a range of unpublished sources to examine the complex dialogue between Westminster and the popes Clement VI and Innocent VI concerning two 'grand themes': ecclesiastical administration and the preservation of peace.
