This course will study three assassinations of the 12th century: that of Bishop Gaudry of Laon in 1112, that of Count Charles of Flanders in 1127, and that of Archbishop Thomas Becket of Canterbury in 1170. We will study these assassinations and the manifold issues they raise through the various contemporary historical accounts of the murders and their consequences. Another of our goals will thus be to recognize and investigate the ways in which historical works render actions intelligible and meaningful.
