    An attempt to combine biography and history Between Church and State contains four lives of medieval French prelates The first two are short just over thirty pages each The Dominican Bernard Gui 1261 1331 was prior inuisitor and bishop in southern France An able administrator and a historian of note he bears little resemblance here to the bloodthirsty inuisitor portrayed by Umberto Eco in The Name of the Rose Gilles Le Muisit 1272 1353 was abbot of Saint Martin After going blind in 1346 he devoted himself to dictating poetry and prose in French and LatinThe other two prelates had important political roles and Guenée devotes considerably space to them His life of Pierre d'Ailly 1351 1420 is almost a mini history of the French Church during the Great Schism Ambitious and talented Pierre d'Ailly rose to be head of the College of Navarre at the University of Paris chancellor of Paris chaplain to Charles VI and then bishop of the important diocese of Cambrai A renowned orator he played a leading role in the political and theological debates of the period over issues such as an unpopular chancellor the immaculate conception and the withdrawal of obedience from the Pope Pierre d'Ailly's career culminated in leadership of the French nation at the council of ConstanceAlong with his native Normandy Thomas Basin 1412 1490 endured a troubled mid fifteenth century Appointed bishop of Lisieux he swore loyalty to Henry VI of England in 1448; in 1449 he negotiated the bloodless surrender of his episcopal seat to Charles VII retaining his position He played an important role in the debates over the Norman Charter and the acceptance of the Pragmatic Sanction Having taken the wrong side in the War of the Public Weal in 1466 Thomas Basin had to flee in order to avoid the wrath of Louis XI He resigned his bishopric in 1474 and spent his old age as a refugee moving from one town to another in search of security His writings included lives of Charles VII and Louis XIGuenée does not indulge in dramatisation or psychological speculation Neither can he provide much in the way of biographical minutiae his primary sources are his subjects' own writings and those of their peers and his lives are as a result stronger by far in intellectual than in personal detail Guenée does however make connections with broader themes in the history of ideas — such as the position of ambition among the other sins the distinction between different kinds of fears or the justification of capitulation to superior force
