This interdisciplinary, archival research project examines the poetry, letters, and manuscripts produced at the archiepiscopal court of Reims (northern France) during the rule of Manasses I (c. 1069-1080). By examining first-hand a number of unpublished, unedited manuscripts containing works by members of the Reims court circle, I intend to shed light on the complex and controversial process of church reform in medieval Europe, and revise conventional narratives of reform that project Archbishop Manasses as an antagonist of the Roman agenda. More broadly, my aim is to challenge the traditional way historians have explained the process of church-state separation in medieval Europe, especially their reliance on the dichotomous model of resistance/reform.
