Abstract

The Clergy of the Church of England Database, a project funded by the AHRB, began work in I999 with the aim of constructing a relational database covering all clerical careers in the Church of England between I540 and I835. This article outlines the methodology and scope of the project before discussing some of the intellectual problems posed by the task of constructing a database that reflects the complexities of an irrational, pre-bureaucratic organisation. It also offers an insight into the potential of the completed database as a tool for investigating the largest profession of the early modern period.
