Prelude to Forgery: Baldwin of Bury meets Pope Alexander II *

2017-11-09

Abstract
This article argues that we can only understand Bury St Edmunds’ post-Conquest dossier of forged Anglo-Saxon royal diplomas by viewing it alongside that house’s earlier acquisition of an authentic papal privilege from Alexander II (Oct. 1071). That is, the hitherto overlooked failure of that the genuine papal document to find any acceptance in 1070s England necessitated Bury’s recourse to royal forgery. The implications of this go well beyond Bury. Abbot Baldwin’s initial optimism in eliciting papal support sprang from the renewed strength of Anglo-papal relations in the decades preceding the Norman Conquest. The genuine document’s failure, and the subsequent turn to forging royal texts, is mirrored by an almost total absence of evidence of petitions for papal support in the post-Conquest decades. In light of this, we must be wary of attempts to date any part of the wider corpus of forged papal documents for English beneficiaries within these same immediately post-Conquest years: the failed application of even genuine papal acta under the new Anglo-Norman regime suggests that attempts to forge similar specimens would have been highly unlikely in this period. The article’s appendix comprises the first full critical edition of the Alexander II privilege, together with an English translation.



Image Desecration in Spilamberto: Jews and Christian Images in Seventeenth-Century Italy *

2017-11-09

Abstract
This article explores a series of incidents that took place near Modena between 1632 and 1635, in which members of a Jewish family were accused of desecrating Christian devotional images. It is based on a file in the inquisitorial archive in Modena, with additional information culled from the Archivio della Congregazione per la Dottrina della Fede in Rome. The principal locale of the story is a silk mill which was leased to Simon Sanguinetti and his four sons in 1632, a year after plague had devastated the region. The Sanguinetti were encouraged to take on this enterprise by the mill-owner, Baldassare Rangone, who clearly hoped that an injection of Jewish capital would result in the revival of the business. However, the Jewish tenants-cum-managers were soon accused of desecrating two types of Catholic images—a painted panel and cheap prints of religious subjects. During the investigations, three Jewish suspects were imprisoned for periods of up to four months, and two of them were tortured. The main focus of this article is on the two types of images, their religious and social significance, the Jewish–Christian tensions that were created by them, and their supposed desecration. It illustrates an unstudied aspect of hidden Jewish violence and the actualisation of emotions that might otherwise have remained unnoticed.

Proxy Pasts: The Use of British Historical References in Spanish American Independence Rhetoric, 1808–1828 *

2017-10-20

Abstract
In the independence era of the early nineteenth century, Spanish American patriot leaders hoped to find in Great Britain an ally not only in their fight for emancipation, but also in their efforts to become accepted into the family of nations. To do this, they not only cast their eyes across land and sea to study what contemporary Britain might offer as a political model, but they also ransacked the history books for material from its past. Although it is commonly assumed that the American and French Revolutions were the inspirations for Spanish American independence leaders, a strong case can be made for their attraction to the British model and historical experience. Their newspapers and congressional debates were filled with discussions of Magna Carta, the Tudors and Stuarts, the Armada, Oliver Cromwell and the English Civil War, all of which were deployed with great skill to inform contemporary debates on matters such as religious tolerance, the jury system, the relative merits of republics versus monarchies, and the role of strong women in public life. The extensive use of British historical references reveals much about a political model that was attracting serious consideration during the Spanish American independence period.

Economic Direction and Generational Change in Twentieth-Century Britain: The Case of the Scottish Coalfields *

2017-07-31

Abstract
Changes in economic direction in Britain in the twentieth century were incremental, rarely permanent, and strongly contested, although trends to deindustrialisation, widened inequality and the ostracism of trade unions from policy-making were clear by the mid-1980s. This followed the defeat of the striking miners in 1984–5, a decisive movement in macro-economic direction. This case study of the Scottish coalfields uses generational analysis to illuminate the contested nature of these long-running economic changes. Three distinct trade union generations are identified, each of which was linked to successive ideal-types of economic unit. Each type represented an ever-larger economy of scale and qualitative changes in coalfield employment: ‘Village Pits’, ‘New Mines’, and ‘Cosmopolitan Collieries’. The evolving organisation of production, combined with other powerful experiences in early adulthood, gave rise to different political goals for each successive generation. The first, born in the 1890s, won the primary objective of nationalisation in 1947; the second, born in the 1920s, secured important changes to the manner in which the nationalised industry operated in the 1960s, gaining greater control for the workforce and enhanced economic security for the wider community; the third, born in the 1950s, attempted to defend the social democratic elements of the nationalised order in the 1980s against changing macro-economic strategy and micro-managerial operations which threatened pits, jobs and the voice of the worker in decision-making. Nationalisation, it is shown, was a success from the perspective of the workforce, but only because trade unions compelled the National Coal Board and the UK government to preserve economic security in the coalfields. These victories of the 1960s were overturned, however, by the Conservative government in the 1980s, at enormous cost to coalfield communities and workers.
