Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a translation of the unpublished letter, which enumerates no less than thirty serious charges against the archbishop of Patras. Beyond the letter, the chapter determines that Antelm’s entire reign is important and exciting enough to warrant a re-examination in the light of the complete papal correspondence. It merely describes Antelm’s reign with the following aims: to expose to a broader audience and pay homage to the research of Professor Zakythinos, with some corrections; to provide some interesting new information from previously unpublished sources, although the fact that the information is new is cause for some reflection; and to speculate on what the diplomatic sources may tell us about our main narrative source, the Chronicle of the Morea, in connection with the famous episode of the construction of Chlemoutsi Castle, “the most outstanding work of secular building in all of Frankish Greece.”.

Keywords: Antelm; archbishop of Patras; Chlemoutsi Castle; Frankish Greece; Morea; papal correspondence; Professor Zakythinos
