   Abstract = {In The Sleep of Behemoth, Jehangir Yezdi Malegam explores
             the emergence of conflicting concepts of peace in western
             Europe during the High Middle Ages. Ever since the Early
             Church, Christian thinkers had conceived of their peace
             separate from the peace of the world, guarded by the
             sacraments and shared only grudgingly with powers and
             principalities. To kingdoms and communities they had allowed
             attenuated versions of this peace, modes of accommodation
             and domination that had tranquility as the goal. After 1000,
             reformers in the papal curia and monks and canons in the
             intellectual circles of northern France began to reimagine
             the Church as an engine of true peace, whose task it was
             eventually to absorb all peoples through progressive acts of
             revolutionary peacemaking. Peace as they envisioned it
             became a mandate for reform through conflict, coercion, and
             insurrection. And the pursuit of mere tranquility appeared
             dangerous, and even diabolical.As Malegam shows, within
             western Christendom’s major centers of intellectual
             activity and political thought, the clergy competed over the
             meaning and monopolization of the term “peace.”
             contrasting it with what one canon lawyer called the
             “sleep of Behemoth,” a diabolical “false” peace of
             lassitude and complacency, one that produced unsuitable
             forms of community and friendship that must be overturned at
             all costs. Out of this contest over the meaning and
             ownership of true peace, Malegam concludes, medieval
             thinkers developed theologies that shaped secular political
             theory in the later Middle Ages. The Sleep of Behemoth
             traces this radical experiment in redefining the meaning of
             peace from the papal courts of Rome and the schools of Laon,
             Liege, and Paris to its gradual spread across the continent
             and its impact on such developments as the rise of papal
             monarchism; the growth of urban, communal self-government;
             and the emergence of secular and mystical

   Abstract = {The Miracula sancti Ursmari recounts an eleventh-century
             tour of relics during which monks from Lobbes brought peace
             to squabbling Flemish knights. While it could be assumed
             that the monks mediated between antagonists or organized
             reconciliation ceremonies, peacemaking in this text is not
             the arbitration of disputes but rather a conveyance of
             transformative grace; it is a sacrament offered to Flemish
             communities whose ethos of fighting reflects the region's
             need for religious reform. Methods of arbitration or
             compromise undertaken in the absence of the saint are
             parodies of peace: any tranquility they bring is illusory
             and consequently betrayed by renewed conflict. This text
             prompts us to reexamine conflict narratives for theological
             understandings of pax that structure the depiction of a
             dispute resolution. The descriptions should not be taken as
             prima facie evidence of medieval social ordering but treated
             as guides to monastic aspirations during a period of church
