Notes
Introduction: Odo of Tournai
1. See Renaissance and Renewal in the Twelfth Century, ed. Robert L. Benson and Giles Constable ( Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1982).
2. Herimanni Liber de restauratione monasterii Sancti Martini Tornacesis, in MGH, SS, 14 ( Hanover, 1883; reprint, 1963), 266-317. (References to this work will supply page and line numbers to this edition.) Herman was elected abbot in 1127 following the death of his predecessor, Segardus. After approximately ten years, Herman stepped down as abbot, according to one account, or was forced to resign, according to another. Regardless of the circumstances that brought him to abdicate as abbot, he continued to work on behalf of Tournai. In 1142 he was in Rome seeking for the chapter the right of electing the bishop, and it was there that he began this history, soon after the fiftieth anniversary of the restoration of the monastery of St. Martin of Tournai. For a good discussion of the older sources treating Odo and the monastery of St. Martin of Tournai, see especially Ursmer Berlière , Monasticon Belge ( Abbaye de Maredsous, 1897) 1/a: 271-273.
3. Amandus de Castello de Odonis episcopi Cameracensis vita vel moribus, in MGH, SS, 15, 2 ( Hanover, 1883; reprint, 1963): 942-945.
4. Liber de restauratione, 307, 6. For more information on this foundation for women, see pp. 15-16 above.
5. "Monumenta Historiae Tornacensis," in MGH, SS, 14: 266.
6. Herman was related by blood to a long list of bishops or abbots, and to the counts of Flanders. Equally important, Herman traveled widely on behalf of the monastery (of which he later became abbot) and the bishopric of Tournai, and acquired extensive knowledge of events in the larger world. Since he had been well educated -- acquainted with Virgil, Sallust, and the Roman historians as well as the Bible and the fathers of the Church -- Herman was able to refer to older histories and chronicles in order to expand his treatment of the monastery at Tournai. His personal experience and his access to historical source materials render Herman's work valuable both as a vita or biography of Odo of Tournai and as a chronicle of events in Flanders and, indeed, Europe as a whole. In the words of Charles Dereine, "A work of a well informed and, from our point of view, impartial man, the Liber constitutes a document of the greatest value." See his "Odon de Tournai et la crise du cénobitisme au XIe siècle," Revue du Moyen Âge Latin 4 ( 1948): 140.
7. Liber de restauratiane, 274, 43.
8. "Erat quippe fundatus grammatica, rhetorica ornatus, armatus dialectica." Amand du Chastel, De Odonis episcopi, 943, 43. This text is reproduced by
