This book explores how eleventh- and twelfth-century Anglo-Norman ecclesiastical authors attributed anger to kings in the exercise of their duties, and how such attributions related to larger expansions of royal authority. It argues that ecclesiastical writers used their works to legitimize certain displays of royal anger, often resulting in violence, while at the same time deploying a shared emotional language that also allowed them to condemn other types of displays. These texts are particularly concerned about displays of anger in regard to suppressing revolt, ensuring justice, protecting honor, and respecting the status of kingship. In all of these areas, the role of ecclesiastical and lay counsel forms an important limit on the growth and expansion of royal prerogatives.

Then, two years ago, while researching online at ShtetLinks, something 'flipped'. From one moment to the next I was not looking at a research screen, but at a personal opportunity. A mind-boggling opportunity when I thought about it, to reverse history's efforts to obliterate our family, its background, it's honor, its unassuming but legitimate place in history.
Last year, I had little material compared to some ShtetLinks sites, and more than others. It seemed imperative to keep researching and learning HTML. I dreamed of a magnificent testimonial. But the delay in publishing began to bother me, us - the whole intent was to honor the lives and struggles of our forebears, which meant publication. Otherwise, everything would stay in the family, on my hard drive and in my pocket-paged binder, till some future unknown golden moment of fullness.
YOu have gained Riches, and you seek worldly Glory, an evill covetousnesse to your selves; and these Idols being set up in your hearts to be worshipped, you rage and wonder why the children of light will not worship your Gods you have set up, and fall down before the glory of the World in you, so you are angry; but why are you so blind to think that such who have denied to bow to the same spirit and pride in [Page] [Page 1] [...] [Page 2] themselves, and have (through the Crosse) obtained power from above to cast out the same dols out of their own hearts, and can they bow to them in another; nay, the day is come, and the children of light have found the living God to worship, and there is none besides him to us, and now in vain is the Idol preached; we cannot worship with you, however you be tormented, it is of God to famish the worlds Idols; and he alone will be worshipped who is mighty to save, what have we to do any more with Idolatry, pride cannot save us, nor can the worlds glory preserve in the hour of temptation, though we should how thereto; we cannot trust in uncertain riches, nor may we take counsell at silver or gold, flocks or heards, we have proved your Idols, and know what is in them, and we have found them destroyers and not Saviours; whatever your glory promises you (who most seek it) we know in its right hand is a lye, flattery, and falshood, and all who loves it comes short of the glory of God, humility is our glory, and he is our Saviour, who saith, learn of me for I am lowly, and ye shall find rest for your soules, and this we have proved, and we find his words truth, and all loftinesse a lye; so having found the truth, the truth hath made us free, free from pride, free from vain-glory, free from that spirit that puts it on, and would have it worshipped, free from the manner of the Gentiles, who exercise Lordship in that nature which is out of the light and doctrine of Christ.
But you say, that worship we plead for is Civil, not Religious, but where do you read in Scripture of civil worship we find, honour all men in the Lord, and that which is in the Lord, is Religious; and that which is not in the Lord is Idolatrous, is there any thing honourable in man but the Image of God which is spirituall, he that worships where that is not, worships the beast, or that which is worse, the Devil, and if any bow to that of God in man, how comes it not to be religious and yet you say for conscience sake, and not religious, so your distinctions will not gain worship from them who knows God and his Image, and the beast and his image in their severall appearances, and by this are they known for ever, he that's from above seeks not honour from man, but that honour which is of God alone; Gods presence in him makes him honourable in the hearts of all that loves God, so God gives him grace, and glory, and honour, but the other must have none from God, who abides not in that which is honourable, and so becomes as the beast seeking honour by force from such as he hath power over, and rages if he [Page 4] cannot have it, and this nature hath no right to it, though the false Prophet joyn with him to plead for it, who must into the lake together; and all that worship the beast and his Image, must drink of the wine of the wrath of God, powred out without mixture, as saith the Scripture.
So you that are in place to rule, and seek for honour, seek first that which is honourable, and none can hold you from honour, and know it is the gift of God onely to such as honour him, and not themselves; seek that glory and honour that hath immortality and eternall life, which is obtained of God by continuance in well doing; seek humility that goes before honour, exalt justice, set up righteousnesse and truth in judgement, hold forth Gods sword to all people under you, and not your own wills, without respect of persons, then you honour God, and he will honour you, seek first the Kingdome of God, that he may rule in your own hearts, over your pride, over your passion, over lust, over covetousnesse, over respect of persons, and over all unrighteousnesse, so shall you set up the higher power in you, for every soule to be subject to, which that of God in every conscience shall answer to, then are you Ministers of God, and he shall adde to you that honour which is of God, which is spirituall, which is immortall, binding every conscience and soule in subjection to your authority which all that resist receive damnation to themselves, and this is religious and an ordinance of God, and receives not its honour from man, but from God alone, who hath ever honoured holy men and women that ruled for God with God, as you may read in the Scriptures, who never needed to seek it from men while they retained God; but Saul when God wa [...] departed from him, through covetousnesse and disobedience, cryed, Hoour me before the people, who had lost the kingdom of God, had lost his honour, had lost that which binds the conscience, and to which the soule is to be [Page 5] subject, who cryed, Honor me before the People, from whom God was departed, who had departed from God, who sought honor to himself without God, the Kingdom of God being rent from him, his honor departed: So you that would have Honor, seek God, and retain him, exalt his Kingdom in your hearts, and he will add honor thereto; but if you be disobedient, and your own souls be not subject to the higher Power, then another power rules, to which the righteous soul cannot subject for conscience sake; then gets up he that's out of Gods Kingdom, and cries honor me before the people. 59ce067264
