The Ottonians and Benedictines were expanding across Europe around the same time. However, other than in Rome they didn't have much overlap. I've heard references in some history and medieval architecture classes that there was some sort of antagonism between the two. Is this something that is findable in sources? Was there any contact or friction between the two groups of any kind? Some checking in the books I have on the period never covered this and a quick Google search did not come up with anything. Were there relations between the two, and if so, what were they? If there are sources on them I'd be curious to see them.
What I would like to see are sources that note the contact between the two and what sort of diplomacy or contact is noted between a religious order the size and influence of the benedictines and the Ottonians.
