Henry Mayr-Harting explores the intellectual culture underpinning Ottonian rule in tenth-century Germany, as seen through a surviving account of the life of Bruno, Archbishop of Cologne (935-65). Written shortly after Bruno's death by the otherwise obscure monk Ruotger, this biography examines the political and scholarly achievements of one of the most distinguished men in the tenth-century West. Using this evidence, along with surviving annotations and glosses in Cologne manuscripts, this book sheds important new light on the intellectual life of this period.
