Re: Reading the Conqueror and the Red


I am always concerned that Eadmer gets mixed up with Eadmer the Lefthanded who Gundulf acting on the Conqueror's order gained the assistance of in his historic construction of The Great Tower Of [sign in to see URL]'s significance for some is in his theological [sign in to see URL] is undeniable but [sign in to see URL] is another good feature of Emma Mason's book that Eadmer is put under close scrutiny but as far as I can recall the false Papal Bulls are not mentioned? Anselm was certainly obstructive of the Red which again Mason cites in her book in a particularly sharp exchange in which Anselm was excessive to the point of the Red challenging him as to whether he would dare to have talked to the Conqueror in such a manner.

Re: Reading the Conqueror and the Red


I have read most of the books quoted in the discussion (where the subject matter is adhered to consistently) and they are useful and provide facts in a profound way.I would add a recent book "Matilda:Queen Of The Conqueror" by Tracy Borman which illuminates new areas of appreciation regarding William 1 and William 11 and their contemporaries.
