Preface
In memoriam John Brückmann
The majority of the papers in this volume were originally presented at a conference onmedieval coronations and related rituals held in February 1985 in Toronto. The meeting wasto commemorate the untimely death of John Brückmann, a beloved teacher of medievalhistory at Glendon College and an original scholar who had concentrated his research oncoronation
ordines
. Having studied at Harvard College, the University of Toronto (with BertieWilkinson), and the Pontifical Institute for Medieval Studies where he regarded himself a pupilof Father J. R. O'Donnell, C.S.B., Brückmann wrote his doctoral dissertation in 1964 onEnglish coronations between 1213–1318. Besides an article on the "Second Recension" of theroyal coronation
ordo
—in the Wilkinson-Festschrift—he also published a checklist of liturgicalmanuscripts (in
Traditio
), both prolegomena to his great project, the edition of coronation
ordines
of medieval England. This plan remains a desideratum, for John died after a brief illness in December 1983. It is to his memory that this volume is dedicated.The conference was generously supported by several universities, colleges, and institutesin Toronto and by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Withouttheir assistance and the collegial cooperation of the organizers at Glendon College, YorkUniversity, and the Pontifical Institute it would not have been possible to bring together suchan international gathering of like-minded scholars and—ultimately—this volume. It is an honorfor us that this volume has been cosponsored by the Center for Medieval and RenaissanceStudies at UCLA, which helped to subsidize the cost of the illustrations.I translated the contributions submitted in German, French, or Italian (with theexception of Professor Le Goff's, which was originally translated by Nora Scott) and wish toacknowledge my debt for assistance in polishing theviiitranslations to Professors Idit Dobbs-Weinstein, Diane Owen Hughes, and Margerie Sinel,as well as to Eva Gieysztor-Stucki. I am also grateful for the critical remarks of theanonymous readers and the presenter of the manuscript, and for the expert editorialassistance of the staff of University of California Press. With their help, I have done my bestto standardize the many different styles and forms of reference used by the authors whobelong to several schools and national conventions. However, just because of this variety of observances, that was not always possible. I also regret that financial considerations forcedus to accept the placing of the notes after the single essays and not at the bottom of thepages; I hope that the attentive reader will be able to find them.Finally, I should like to note that many articles were submitted soon after the meeting in1985. If some authors may seem not to have taken account of the most recent literature, thefault is mine. Preparing the volume for print took longer than I had anticipated.J. M.
