Chapter Summary

Ivo was familiar with the new approach to the investiture question in terms of the differentiation between the temporalities and the spiritualities, the source of which could be the polemic of Guido or the correspondence of Manegold or Anselm of Canterbury. The De investitura episcoporum (1109) is the next important effort to analyse the investiture question. Bruno's view of investiture is one of the most consistent defences of the Gregorian orthodoxy. Bruno eschews the discussion of the investiture question as a technical problem that is detached from the heretical implications of the moral-theological approach to the arrangement postulated by the late-period royal polemicists. Finally, the entire discussion of investiture demonstrates the extent to which the 'logic of public debate' contributed forcefully to the new discourse of the late period.
