Abstract
The author argues that the introduction of the written promise of obedience made by abbots to the local bishop, as recorded in liturgical manuals of the late-twelfth century, was the result of a process that began at least a century earlier By looking at an exceptional set of liturgical and archival sources from the Bishopric of Arras in northern France and putting them in their appropriate canonical, liturgical, and political contexts, the author shows how, in the late-eleventh and early-twelfth centuries, reformist bishops were experimenting with a ritual repertoire that included references be they intended or inferred to both the monastic profession and secular homage.
