David Crouch in Archaeologia Cambrensis: 'Julia Barrow is a scholar of European interests and reputation She brings the wide range and depth of her scholarship to bear on the problems of St Davids and the result is a brilliant essay on a diocese and episcopal community evolving at a time of rapid change ... the South Wales Record Society is to be highly commended ... the Society has brought the study of Welsh ecclesiastical institutions into the European mainstream and done a great service to Welsh scholarship.'
Nicholas Vincent in History: 'a near faultless edition, the product of many years of archival research, providing an essential tool for all scholars of Welsh and ecclesiastical history'
J R Davies in Cambrian Medieval Celtic Studies: 'a much needed addition to the sparsely equipped tool-box of historians of the Welsh Church in the Middle Ages.'
