Sample text

Both these phrases are used almost exclusively by Becket and his supporters. The opponents of Becket use Anglorum in 5 letters, Anglicana only in 4. This in itself is noteworthy, because, if the phrase had a patriotic significance, it would more naturally be found on the lips of those who supported the king against Becket and against papal authority. Moreover, the letters in which these phrases occur are, as to exactly one-half of them, addressed either to the Pope or to cardinals; ecclesia Anglicana appears in 23 letters addressed to the Pope, in 13 addressed to cardinals.

Occasionally as a variant we find ecclesia Angliae, especially in the letters of St Anselm; he employs the same variation in speaking of the king of England, whom he always addresses correctly as "rex Anglorum5' but sometimes refers to as "rex Angliae". Itis quite clear what Anselm's meaning was when he used the phrase. He is not likely to be accused of a narrowly national outlook, for it was the lawfulness of papal authority which in his contests with the English kings he particularly championed.
