  Gregory VII and the Politics of the Spirit   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The eleventh century marked the official division between the Eastern Christian Churches, what is today known as Eastern Orthodoxy, and the Catholic Church of the West claimed by Roman Catholicism and critiqued by the churches of the Reformation.
The eleventh century was a period of profound change and creativity in the understanding of ecclesiastical as well as civil law.
In the centuries that followed, as canon lawyers scoured earlier sources to provide a legal basis for papal authority, the Church came to be viewed less as a spiritual fellowship than as a hierarchical and juridical corporation composed of clergy and bishops and pope.

 Quilting - Eighth to Thirteenth Century   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
From the eleventh through the fifteenth centuries, these garments were worn under chain and plate armor, as protection from cold and chafing, and had little need for decorative stitching.
If records are proof of importance, then domestic quilting of the eleventh, twelfth, and thirteenth centuries does not seem to have had the same standing as quilted armor over the same period.
Towards the end of the thirteenth century, a few references to quilted bedding are thinly scattered and not very descriptive, but where they do exist, they seem to imply that quilts as bed covers, far from being rare, were an accepted kind of furnishing.

For we of the eleventh century, hard- headed, close-fisted, grasping, shrewd, as we were, and as Normans are still said to be, stood more fully in the centre of the world's movement than our English descendants ever did.
Still, the overmastering strength of the eleventh century is stamped on a great scale here, not only in the four spans of the nave, and in the transepts, but chiefly in the triumphal columns of the croisee.
The greatest poem of the eleventh century was the "Chanson de Roland," and of that the Church took a sort of possession.

 Charles M. Radding | Legal Theory and Practice in Eleventh-Century Italy | Law and History Review, 21.2 | The History ...
In the course of the twelfth century, she argues, legal practitioners developed their own kinds of expertise that, though less bookish, might have had a practical significance equal to, if not greater than, the learning produced in the schools.
It is easy to show—indeed, it is well understood—that the legal profession in Italy began to undergo a further transformation of learning by the middle of the eleventh century, or perhaps a hundred years earlier than the examples Reynolds herself cites.
In addition, while she seems to see learning filtering down from the schools to practice, the situation in the eleventh century permits us to glimpse a process by which legal practice led to a more formal "bookish" learning that in turn found its audience among legal professionals.

Below is a short sample of the essay "How accurate is the statement that the eleventh century saw ‘a great religious revival’ in England, and to what extent were the Norman responsible?".
While it is true that Pope Gregory VII saw William as a model king, it is likely this judgement was chiefly based on the conquest's papal backing and the fact that William was among the least hostile to him among the monarchs of Europe rather than any personal zeal for reform.
That the Norman rule of the later eleventh century did see church reform is, however, undeniable.

Iconoclasm (Eikonoklasmos, "Image-breaking") is the name of the heresy that in the eighth and ninth centuries disturbed the peace of the Eastern Church, caused the last of the many breaches with Rome that prepared the way for the schism of Photius, and was echoed on a smaller scale in the Frankish kingdom in the West.

But as late as the eleventh century Bishop Jocelin of Bordeaux still had Iconoclast ideas for which he was severely reprimanded by Pope Alexander II.
