When it came to power in medieval Europe, much of it rested in the hands of kings and popes. But what happened when they decided not to share it? This week, Danièle speaks with Blair Apgar about the dramatic clash of emperor versus pope at Canossa in 1077.
Blair Apgar recently completed a PhD Dissertation on Matilda of Tuscany at the University of York. You can follow Blair on Twitter @BlairApgar
