Anselm, Saint, Archbishop of Canterbury. [Letter to Matilda of Scotland, queen of the English, 1104] in Sancti Anselmi Cantuariensis Archiepiscopi Opera Omnia 5.250-51

[Letter from Anselm, archbishop of Canterbury, to Matilda of Scotland, queen of the English]
Though Anselm is touched by the immensity of the queen's love, he refuses to compromise in the name of God’s justice. By assuring her that the son does not carry the iniquity of the father, nor the wife of the husband, he implicitly leaves the king out of his and God's good will.
