    As to your complaint of being hindered by your business from close attention to reading or prayer, let it be a great consolation to you that charity covereth the multitude of sins. Justice, Dignity and Offense If, as Plato writes in Republicjustice is to give each his due, what is the just due creatures ought to give their Creator? What then is more evident than that the more assiduously the rational mind directs itself to learning about itself, the more effectively it ascends to the knowledge [cognitionem] of that Being, and that the more carelessly it looks upon itself, the more it descends from the exploration [speculatione] of that Being? Conflict over lay investiture now broke out, however, and Anselm refused to consecrate bishops and abbots nominated by the king. Unable to decide between becoming a monk at Bec or Cluny, becoming a hermit, or living off his inheritance and giving alms to the poor, he put the decision in the hands of Lanfranc and Maurilius, the Archbishop of Rouen, who decided Anselm should enter monastic life at Bec, which he did in Taking her cue from Colish's emphasis on language and grammar, Sweeney offers a comprehensive discussion of all of Anselm's works.

And so if you bid me not call you what notwithstanding, in virtue of your superiority of character you really are if I speak my mind candidly to me, let me at any rate follow my original wish of calling myself what I really am to you. The argument at its core is that only a human being can make recompense for human sin against God, but this being impossible for any human being, such recompense could only be made by God. They are an acute witness to his mind and action, illuminating his monastic teaching, intellectual journey, leadership, and positions respective to rivalries within the church and between ecclesiastical and lay rulers. Thanks to the indefatigable efforts of the secretary of the International Committee for Anselm Studies, Helmut Kohlenberger, ever since conferences on Anselm have been organized on a regular basis resulting into a vast number of publications. Unable to decide between becoming a monk at Bec or Cluny, becoming a hermit, or living off his inheritance and giving alms to the poor, he put the decision in the hands of Lanfranc and Maurilius, the Archbishop of Rouen, who decided Anselm should enter monastic life at Bec, which he did in
