Chapter Summary

The dedication of Richard Fletcher?s eighth book, Bloodfeud, is arresting and a shade mysterious. Fletcher tested the logistical possibilities by loading his two little sisters and setting them on a timed march. Fletcher was adventurous in setting out on a doctoral study of the episcopate of León in the twelfth century, for many of the relevant archives were poorly housed and little explored. Fletcher?s capacity for bringing out the strong interest of the inter- course between Galicia and the wide world to its east is plain indeed in his next book, St. James?s Catapult, an account of the life and times of Diego Gelmírez, bishop of Compostela, 1100?1140.

Keywords: Bloodfeud; Richard Fletcher; St. James?s Catapult
