An almost literary ‘close reading’ (though this owed little to literary scholarship and nothing at all to post-structuralist views of the world, which have aﬀected German medievalists hardly at all) replaced what had become the increasingly desperate interwar attempts to unpack these texts in a purely positivist manner, to try to force them to reveal ‘how it really was’. 43 England in the long tenth century was clearly as regionalised a society as anything on the other side of the Channel. 45 It might be thought that the main reason for this is the sheer paucity of source-material: the number of indisputably genuine tenth-century charters of all types from the whole of Anglo-Saxon England hardly exceeds.
65 Even some of the heresies of the period (and the recording of heresy from about onwards is itself a novelty) are interpretable in terms of ‘leftist deviation’, as the products of people who have been reached so eﬀectively by the message as to take it too far; the same is true of the occasional notes of anti-semitism of the period. There is a note of questioning, of self-doubt, in the writings of many ecclesiastics of this period – Rather of Verona, Thietmar of Merseburg, Wulfstan of York – which seems both more strident and more searching than it had been in the Carolingian era.
39 This is, arguably, accident: the original Annales idea of ‘total history’ has simply turned out to be more easy to realise by historians of the high middle ages than by historians of later periods in the time available for the production of theses. If this is so, it has been a very signiﬁcant accident. The positions and traditions of Italian and Spanish medievalists show great similarities. The tenth century is one of extreme localisation: meaningful generalisations about or general histories of the Italian or Spanish peninsulas are diﬃcult, if not impossible.
