Alan of Tewkesbury

Alan, Abbot of Tewkesbury became a monk at Canterbury, rising to prior in 1179. In the struggle between Thomas of Canterbury and Henry II, he was a strong supporter of Thomas. As a result, he went to Tewkesbury as abbot where he was out of Henry's way.

His "Life of Becket" is to be found in the second volume of Materials for the History of Thomas Becket, edited by the Rev. J. C. Robertson (Rolls Series, London,; 1875–85; Part I, CXC, 1475–88). He also collected and arranged a number of Thomas' letters.

His Life of Becket was primarily intended by him as a introduction to the collection of the Becket letters which he assembledand edited.  Alan of Tewkesbury's collection of the Becket correspondence an enlargement upon John of Salisbury's collection was originally designed to be prefaced by the following works: Alan's prologue, followed by John of Salisbury's Life of Becket, followed by Alan's more explanatory Life of Becket. It was also used in the Quadrilogus versions II and I.

In 1179 Alan became prior of Christ Church Canterbury, and in 1186, after a dispute with Archbishop Baldwin, he became abbot of St Mary's, Tewkesbury.

There is a theory that Alan of Tewkesbury and the scholastic philosopher Alan of Lille are one and the same person.

Libertas Ecclesiae

Pope Gregory VII's concept of the Freedom of the Church [Libertas ecclesiae]

Papal Bull Document Title:Libertas Ecclesiae
Author: Pope Gregory VII
Date: 1079
Source: Ephraim Emerton, trans., The Correspondence of Pope Gregory VII
(NewYork: Columbia University Press, 1932).
We hold it to be far nobler to fight for a long time for freedom of the Holy Church
than to sink into a miserable and devilish servitude. For the wretched fight as limbs of
the devil, and are crushed down into miserable slavery to him. The members of Christ,
on the other hand, fight to bring back those same wretches into Christian freedom.
Church Liberty was the central slogan of the reform of Pope Gregory VII, and a "key concept" of the Investiture Controversy. Liberty of the Church meant freedom of the Church from oppression by temporal authority and meant especially for Gregory VII:
  • that the Church was free from interference by lay people to elect [invest] their bishops;
  • that the whole Church was de facto and also where necessary under the direct leadership of the Pope;
  • and that the Pope in the whole Christendom ("christianitas") had the highest power.
If Becket fought for anything in particular, he fought for Libertas Ecclesiae --Freedom of the Church from state interference or intervention, church immunity from secular control and jurisdiction, emancipation of the Church from secular authority. John of Salisbury was also a champion for the Freedom of the Church.


Zachary N. Brooke. The English Church and the Papacy: From the Conquest to the Reign of John. Cambridge University Press.  p. 10. ISBN 978-0-521-36687-8.
said
...
Further what I suggested to be the meaning of ecclesia Anglicana as used by Becket. Becket insists that the liberty of the ecclesia Anglicana is at stake, and by liberty he makes it clear that he means freedom from royal control, and at the same time freedom to obey the pope, to be governed by papal authority as was the rest of the Church. He is evidently asserting the right of the Church in England to be treated in the same way that the Church is elsewhere.
...

Canonical authority for Libertas Ecclesiae
Luke 20:25 (King James Version (KJV)
And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar's, and unto God the things which be God's.

In more practical terms the liberty of the church meant, that is included, liberty to proceed to give elections of bishops when their sees fell vacant, so as to put an end to the exploitation of the Church's wealth by the kings.

Benedict of Peterborough

As a chronicler not really to be trusted. He was clearly nothing much more than a  martyrologist, largely interested in only recording the miracles arising from Becket's murder. Indeed he was given the job of recording the miracles as reported by pilgrims to Canterbury. Subsequently he becomes the first guardian of Becket's Shrine at Canterbury, clearly a nice sinecure.

Benedict of Peterborough

Abbot of Peterborough. Wrote a history of Becket's "Passion", preserved in part in the work on Becket known as "Quadrilogus", and also, a first-hand account of Becket's "Miracles" (Robertson, "Materials for the History of Thomas Becket", Rolls Series, 1876). Formerly regarded as the author of "Gesta Henrici II", now ascribed to Roger of Hoveden.

John of Salisbury

Author of  the Life of StThomas of Canterbury. Bishop of Chartres. Author of the  Policraticus and Metalogicon.

His extant works, with the exception of the Historia Pontificalis and also of the Life of St. Thomas of Canterbury, are printed in the 199th volume of Migne's Patrologia Latina.

The central question of relevance to this blog is, was John of Salisbury the mastermind behind Becket's resistance to Henry II? Becket never sent any letters to the important personages of the times without consulting his friend, John of Salisbury, first.

DIPLOMATIC MISSION John of Salisbury and the crisis in the Church of England (1162-1170 AD).

It is shown that John of Salisbury was a key figure in solving the confrontation between the church and the king.
