Review

"All historians of medieval monasticism know about Gerald of Aurillac--or at least we think we do. Mathew Kuefler has written a very original work on Gerald, redating and reattributing the vitae that form the basis of his fame. The book is gracefully written, well argued, and well documented."--Constance Brittain Bouchard, University of Akron

"Kuefler's completely convincing re-dating and reattribution of all the earliest writings about Gerald will need to be taken on board by everyone who works on Western Europe in the Central Middle Ages. His careful rethinking of received views on the subject not only tells us much about important figures of the era (above all Odo of Cluny and Ademar of Chabannes), but also serves as a model of historicized textual criticism. ...this is an important book." Felice Lifshitz, "American Historical Review""
