St. Anselm's archiepiscopal occupation, 1093-1109, spanned the reigns of 2 kings: William Rufus (1087-1100) and the early years of Henry I (1100-1135). because the moment archbishop of Canterbury after the Norman Conquest, Anselm strove to increase the reforms of his instructor and mentor at Bec, and his predecessor at Canterbury, Archbishop Lanfranc (1070-1089). Exploring Anselm's thirty years as previous and abbot of the big, wealthy, Norman monastery of Bec, and instructor in its tuition, this e-book notes the wealth of reviews which ready Anselm for his archiepiscopal profession. Anselm's highbrow strengths as a instructor, thinker and theologian are tested; his very popular theological texts, together with his well known Prayers and Meditations, inspired his statesmanship as he handled conflicts with the constantly hostile King William Rufus. Sally Vaughn argues that Rufus' dying encouraged Anselm's contention with King Henry I, and fostered a extra subdued and civil clash among Anselm and Henry, which ended with cooperation among king and archbishop on the finish of Anselm's lifestyles: king and archbishop yoked jointly as oxen pulling the plow of the church during the land of britain. a last bankruptcy studies Anselm's top of energy as a great administrator over Canterbury and Primate over the church buildings of all Britain, within which place his fans defined him as 'Pope of one other world'. the ultimate part incorporates a choice of unique resource fabric together with archiepiscopal letters drawn basically from Lambeth Palace Library.

Then William would have been part of the Bec/Caen/Canterbury network, and have been trained in the extraordinary interest in and views of history at Bec, that we will discuss in Chapter 2. William would also assume a much larger importance in the story of Anselm’s archiepiscopal career than has hitherto been suspected, if he was indeed trained in the Bec tradition. William wrote two major works useful to us here, Gesta regum anglorum, and Gesta pontificum anglorum. The first is a history of the kings of England, and the second is a history of the bishops and archbishops—the pontiffs—of England.
