During the eleventh and twelfth centuries married priests were forced by the reforming popes and synods to abandon their wives. It is difficult to establish the extent of the social consequences of this enforcement. Contemporary sources in northern France, the focus of this article, dealt with the matter mainly in terms of canon law. In this article the content of the non-sources is analysed, that is, the sources which criticised the prohibition of priestly and clerical marriages butwithoutgiving any information on the lives of thewomen involved. Then the article turns to Sigebertus of Gembloux and Anselm of Canterbury, neighbours to northern France, for information on the plight of these men and women.
