This volume continues the Society's commitment to historical and interdisciplinary research from the early and central Middle Ages, demonstrating its belief that the close interrogation of primary documents yield new insights or important revisions into our understanding of the past.

Volume 33 of the Haskins Society Journal continues the Society's commitment to historical and interdisciplinary research from the early and central Middle Ages and demonstrates its belief that the close interrogation of primary documents yield new insights or important revisions into our understanding of the past. After an investigation of the role of Anglo-Saxon bishops in the provision of coastal defense, the subsequent articles explore different dimensions of the Anglo-Norman period: the place of sex at the royal court, the penitential sensibilities of Anglo-Norman prelates and their geographical expression, the complexity of using Anglo-Norman land surveys as evidence for the nature of and changes in peasant labor and obligations, and the office of sheriff and its place in the developing common law. The Denis Bethell Prize winning essay, through its close analysis of Denis Piramus' French translation of the Life of Edmund, king of England, explores the role of translated texts in the formation of Anglo-Norman elite identity. Essays on Queen Ingeborg of Denmark's conception and expression of her role as a Capetian queen. and on the use and meaning of direct and metaphorical references to art and artists in French sermons in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, round out the volume.

Contributors: Yaoling Dai, Gabrielle Faundez-Rojas, P.D.A Harvey, Charles Insley, Tom Licence, Sara Lipton, Anne C. Schlender, Nigel Tringham.
