Abstract: Let R be a commutative ring with identity and let $ R'$ denote the integral closure of R in its total quotient ring. The basic question that this paper is concerned with is: What finiteness conditions does the integral closure of a Noetherian ring R possess? Unlike the integral domain case, it is possible to construct a Noetherian ring R of any positive Krull dimension such that $ R'$ is non-Noetherian. It is shown that if $ \dim R \leqslant 2$, then every regular ideal of $ R'$ is finitely generated. This generalizes the situation that occurs in the integral domain case. In particular, it generalizes Nagata's Theorem for two-dimensional Noetherian domains.
