See a large account of the controversy (A.D.
1105) which arose from a private lawsuit, in the Chronicon
Farsense, (Script. Rerum Italicarum, tom. ii. pars ii. p.
637, &c.,) a copious extract from the archives of that
Benedictine abbey. They were formerly accessible to curious
foreigners, (Le Blanc and Mabillon,) and would have enriched
the first volume of the Historia Monastica Italiae of
Quirini. But they are now imprisoned (Muratori, Scriptores
R. I. tom. ii. pars ii. p. 269) by the timid policy of the
court of Rome; and the future cardinal yielded to the voice
of authority and the whispers of ambition, (Quirini,
Comment. pars ii. p. 123-136.)]
