  • 'Until well into the ninth century Fulda was the only German monastery to enjoy complete exemption from diocesan control ...; and this favoured position depended on the continued goodwill of the Carolingians. A great immunist was always suspect. Naturally, therefore, the monks did what they could to cultivate the dynasty.' (p131 of 'The Barbarian West: The Early Middle Ages, AD 400-1000' by J M Wallace-Hadrill, 1962; Harper Torchbooks, New York)
