Christopher: Many thanks for the good word about the edition. There will be an
updated version in a couple of months. A round of collating new films will take
place over the holidays. As for Sprandel, received wisdom remains Beauvasis. Lynn
Barker in her 1988 UNC dissertation would treat this; Kimberly LoPrete has also
talked about Ivo's background. But I've never read nor seen anything to suggest
that the Chartres connection is anything more than "possible". All good wishes,
