Lanfranco di Pavia e l Europa del secolo XI (nel IX centenario della morte [1089-1989]. Atti del Convegno internazionale di studi (Pavia, Almo Collegio Borromeo, 21-24 settembre 1989). Edited by Giulio D'Onofrio. [Italia Sacra: Studi e documenti di storia ecclesiastica, Vol. 51.] (Rome: Herder Editrice e Libreria. 1993. Pp. xiv, 774. Lire 160,000 paperback.)

Lanfranc, of Pavia, Bec, and Canterbury, the teacher of both St. Anselm and Ivo of Chartres, and archbishop of Canterbury under King William I, is neither an elusive nor an insignificant figure. Commemorating the nine hundredth anniversary of his death, the nearly eight hundred pages of scholarship published here-the "acta" from a Pavian conference held in 1989-is clear testimony to the interest which Lanfranc and his environment still generate among medievalists. The vast scope of his activity, in widely diverse localities and circumstances, is mirrored in the divisions and the specific contents of this collection of essays. The work is divided into six sections, treating general themes as follows: (i) Lanfranc and his century; (ii) From Pavia to the Abbey of Bec: Juridical studies and monastic discipline; (iii) Liberal arts, philosophy, and theology: Lanfranc and the culture of his century; (iv) The Berengarian controversy; (v) The Archbishop of Canterbury; and (vi) Master Lanfranc. The book continues with an appendix presenting an edition and commentary on the Vita Lanfranci by the late Margaret Gibson, and ends with a set of indices.
