Tom describes a rare medieval case, in which we have a multitude of perspectives on what happened.
In 1222, Bishop Adam was murdered by a group of Caithness farmers in response to increasing church taxes. It is a rare case (for the medieval era) in which we have a multitude of perspectives on what happened, and as a result, we can compare and contrast the different accounts.
There is an Old Norse account in the Icelandic manuscript Flateyjarbók (which Tom has recently written a translation of for the Innes Review article), a report in a letter from the Pope, an entry in the Chronicle of Melrose, an excerpt from Gesta Annalia (contained within the work of John of Fordun) and shorter accounts in a variety of other sources.
Some discussion about Reinald, a Bishop of Ross, will be an entry point to the topic which will be suitable for our location.
