Although numerous texts are available in translation that illustrate the papal side of the Investiture Controversy, few accounts exist that convey the position of secular leaders. Imperial Lives and Letters fills this gap, offering the full text of "The Deeds of Conrad II" (1024–1139) by Wipo, "Life of Emperor the Henry IV" (1056–1106) and the Letters of Henry IV.
