I look forward to reading the next few parts, then!Gregory is next up. The whole Investiture Struggle stuff, then on through Innocent and ending with poor, sad Celestive V, the hermit pope. Part Three will cover the Babylonian Captivity up through the Council of Trent.
Thanks for the typo tippo. Spellcheckers are hopeless with pages like these, so I have to rely on my own proofreading, which is only slightly less hopeless. (I was going to try to pass off "childred" as an Anglo-Saxon name, but decided against it)
FWIW, I'd put Innocent III in front of Gregory VII; less for changes than for codification and elaboration, as befits a lawyer.
Thank you for the response. It's good to know people are seeing this. There was a time, back in the late 1990s, when a number of my essays came up on the first page on search engines (yay Altavista!). Simpler times.
Only slightly off topic, do you know the Internet Sourcebook? ORB? There was some great work done back in those days.
