Arrogance on the part of the meritorious is even more offensive to us than the arrogance of those without merit: for merit itself is offensive. — Nietzsche

Anselm - E. M. Wilmot-Buxton



This book provides excellent insights into the state of the Church during the twelfth century, when the "investiture controversy" conflict raged, and the independence of the Church was threatened from all sides. What could be a dry subject is presented in a fresh, personal, and compelling way by focusing on the power struggle between the gentle, patient, "saint like" Anslem, and the vicious, grasping, blasphemous, and tyrannical William Rufus.
