Consorting with Saints: Prayer for the Dead in Early Medieval France

By Megan McLaughlin | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

My thanks to the librarians, archivists, and staffs of the Bibliothèque Nationale, the Bibliothèque Municipale of Boulogne-sur- Mer, and the Archives Départementales d'Ille-et-Vilaine, de Maine- et-Loire, and de Saône-et-Loire for their assistance and advice. I am especially grateful to M. Jean Delmas and his staff at the Archives Départementales de l'Aveyron, who, in the midst of preparing for a déménagement, arranged for me to see the documents I needed. The Institut de Recherche et d'Histoire de Textes gave prompt attention to my many demands for information and microfilm, while the Caisse Nationale des Monuments Historiques provided the frontispiece photograph. The people who work at the library of the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign have occasionally been bewildered by my requests, but have always done their best to honor them. Special thanks are due to Martha Friedman and Jody Seibold of the History Library, and to Ann Ricker and her staff at Inter-Library Borrowing for their patience and expertise.

Grants from the Fondation Georges Lurcy, the Margaret C. Whiting Foundation, and the UIUC Research Board supported the research for this book. The Research Board also provided a publication subvention. I appreciate their generosity.

I am grateful to many other scholars for sharing their enthusiasm and specialized knowledge with me. Alan E. Bernstein, Marcia Colish, Sharon Farmer, Patrick J. Geary, Thomas Head, Anne D. Hedeman, Martha Newman, Frederick S. Paxton, and Barbara H. Rosen
