This title provides us with a facsimile of Codex B2, ff. 23 from the Archivo General de Navarra. This richly illustrated work provides us with an insight into the nature of the English coronation ceremony from the reign of Richard II. As Prof. Given-Wilson highlights in the book of studies which accompanies the facsimile, this manuscript is largely a copy of the English coronation ordo found in the Litlyngton Missal and the Liber regalis. [1]

As well as the facsimile itself, the work includes a Latin transcript with a facing Spanish translation as well as a number of essays discussing the nature of the coronation ceremony not only in England, but also Castile, Aragon and Navarre, as well as Europe as a whole.
