Lanfranc and the Gregorian Papacy

Lanfranc and the Gregorian Papacy

(p.197) 14 Lanfranc and the Gregorian Papacy


Oxford University Press

Lanfranc's loyal and collaborative service of King William I of England in both ecclesiastical and temporal affairs stands in contrast to the coolness and distance that he showed towards the great reforming pope who from 1073 to 1085 was his contemporary in office, Gregory VII. Lanfranc's attitude may be attributed in part to Gregory's curt refusal, while still Archdeacon Hildebrand, to grant Lanfranc the papal privilege that he desperately needed in order to settle the issue of the primacy of Canterbury unless he came in person to Rome for proper discussion. With regards to partisans of the anti-pope that arose from the papal schism which began in 1084, Lanfrand remained cautiously non-committal.
