Description

There remains no substantive biography of King Philip I of Francia (1060-1108) since 1912; this despite the fact that his reign witnessed a long untroubled minority, the consolidation of Capetian power around Paris, engagement with the dukes of Normandy and counts of Flanders at their prime, the launching of the First Crusade, a supposedly bigamous marriage that threatened papal reform in Francia, and the birth of the Parisian schools. This panel will therefore bring together scholars from different disciplines, working on various aspects of late 11th-century Francia, to shed light on the center of this spider web – Philip I himself.
