The Canterbury and York Society is a British text publication society founded in 1904 which publishes scholarly editions of English medieval (pre-Reformation) ecclesiastical records. The great majority of its publications are editions of the registers of bishops and archbishops (of which it has published over fifty, some in several volumes); but other types of ecclesiastical record also fall within its remit. Its name is derived from those of the two provinces of the Church of England, Canterbury and York: its joint presidents are the two current Archbishops of Canterbury and York. The society endeavours to publish one volume a year, and its 100th volume appeared in 2010.

The Society also holds an annual meeting, which includes a lecture on an aspect of English church history by a leading scholar.

Membership (individual or institutional) is open to all. In return for an annual subscription, the member receives that year's volume and the right to purchase back volumes at a discount.

The genealogist and publisher W.P.W. Phillimore was prominent in the society's original foundation.[1]
