The editors of a new volume, Rethinking the Carolingian Reforms, invited reflections on the ideas and methods of improvement during the early Middle Ages. In this session, we look beyond the Carolingian realms. Ling asks what was being done differently in England about the vexed question of how to define monks and canons. Dyson considers the reception and adaptation of Carolingian episcopal statutes by English clergy.
