'INTRODUCTION TO PART II The documents contained in this second volume of Responsa Alumnorum are of substantially the same kind as those contained in the first volume. The students'replies to the questions set them on entering the English College in Rome tend, in this later period, to become more stereotyped. The lives of the applicants are less full of incident, and conform more to a pattern, as persecution relaxes and the education of Catholic children abroad becomes a matter of course. Until 1658 the questionnaire set to the scholars remained the same, except for insignificant variants, as the one drawn up in the rectorship of Father Persons in 1597. This questionnaire is reprinted after this Introduction. After 1658, a more detailed set of questions was used, and the examination was supposed to be completed before the intending scholar set out for Rome. The first Responsa written in answer to the longer questionnaire are those of John Richardson, whose Liber Ruber number is 924 (page 558 of this volume). His answers, and those of the scholars who follow him, were written in a column down the right hand side of the page, the left hand side being taken up with the questions, which were now written out in full before each answer. The appearance presented by these later Responsa can be judged from the sample list of questions set out below, with an English translation of the queries taking up the space which in the originals is taken up by the answers.

Sometimes parts two and three of this questionnaire were combined, by the ommission of questions, 1, 2, 3, and 4 of part two, and the expansion of question 6 of part three thus: 6. An tantum pecuniae apud oeconomum deponere velit, quantum in reditu illi sufficiet ad viaticum, et depositam nolit in alios usus convertere.

6. Will you deposit sufficient money with the Bursar to provide for your journey home; and having deposited it will you promise not to tum it to other uses ?

In the transcripts in this volume, the questions have not been included; nor have the unchanging parts of the signature and attestation. The answers have been transcribed according to the system described in the Introduction to the previous volume. Each transcript is followed, as in that volume, by an English summary containing all details of historical importance. The first two indexes at the end of this volume include the names of all persons and places mentioned in both volumes. To these there has been added an index of the students' names (Latin forms)

In addition, even the specialist articles on more technical aspects of Church history have illuminated unfamiliar features of the national life. Writing about the lives, works, ideas and influence both of prominent and of lesser-known English Catholics, contributors have used original materials from an exceptionally wide variety of sources, ranging from foreign diplomatic and ecclesiastical archives to local and family records in England and Wales.
