and insular performances of Palm Sunday. Its origins assisted in establishing its authority: medieval accounts such as Durand’s liturgical commentaries and the Golden Legend tell how Theodulf of Orléans (d. 821) heard the Palm Sunday procession from his cell, during his imprisonment by Louis the Pious. He composed the Gloria laus on the spot, and the hymn had led to his release from prison and restoration to his episcopal see. 52 The hymn constitutes a unique quasi-biblical creation, whose subtle dialogue with biblical language, text

. 81 MGH Poetae 1, pp. 558–9. Theodulf, bishop of Orléans, was imprisoned in 818 on suspicion of conspiracy against Louis the Pious: although he probably wrote this hymn during that time, he died in prison in 821 without being restored to his see. Cf. GL , p. 764. 82

I (364–75) and Louis the Pious (813–40) legislated to free papal elections from secular interference. 336 This principle was violated in 998 by Emperor Otto III, whose intervention in the affairs of the papacy merited spectacular and exemplary divine punishment. The mutilation of the papal intruder John XVI ‘so displeased God and St Peter, the blessed prince of the apostles, that [Otto III

The desire to acquire movables remained a very important factor in political behaviour throughout our period, although it was land which provided the resources needed to hang on to power in the long term. 15 The splendid cultural life so evident at the courts of Charlemagne (768–814) and his son, Louis the Pious (814–43), forms the central

art and marvellous craftsmanship of these constructions, he comments, now revealed the incidents to those who had not seen them happen ‘as clearly as if they had been there’.279 Medieval historians made similar observations and drew similar conclusions. Thus, Gregory of Tours describes histories painted on walls; Paul the Deacon describes Theudelinda having the deeds of the Lombards painted in her palace; Ermoldus Nigellus how Louis the Pious had the maxima gesta virum from Orosius painted on the walls of his hall at Ingelheim, joining the acts of caesars to the
