Dr David Johnson works in St. Peter’s College, university of Oxford. He has an unusual (though by no means unique) range of academic interests which include medieval history, especially administrative history, and information management and retrieval. These interests are reflected in the fact that he is currently both a member of the British Academy’s Committee on Episcopal Acta, as well as Honorary Secretary of the Bliss Classification Association, and that he has pursued a joint career in history and academic librarianship in Oxford. His publications include an edition of the acta of Bishop William of Sainte-Mère-Église, executor on behalf of Pope Innocent III for the Interdict which Innocent imposed on England, and one of the chief negotiators between the Pope and King John in attempts to resolve the disputes between king and church. Among other projects, he is currently preparing for publication a collection of legal documents from the reigns of John and his brother, Richard Lionheart.
