Flodoard, the will of St Remigius and the see of Rheims in the tenth century

Roberts, Edward (2014) Flodoard, the will of St Remigius and the see of Rheims in the tenth century. Early Medieval Europe, 22 (2). pp. 201-230. ISSN 0963-9462. (doi:10.1111/emed.12053) (KAR id:65905)


The ‘longer’ will of St Remigius of Rheims, as preserved in the mid-tenth-century Historia Remensis ecclesiae of Flodoard of Rheims, is widely agreed to be a forgery. But despite the fact that it is known almost exclusively from Flodoard’s work, historians have never suggested that this document was produced in his day. This article contends that the longer will was indeed an original component of the Historia. Read in this context, the will can throw new light on the Historia itself, the career of Flodoard and the tumultuous history of the church of Rheims in the first half of the tenth century.
