'Coulton was something of a controversialist and much of his writings were directed at Roman Catholic historians who he accused of having a flagrant disregard for historical accuracy. For Coulton historical truth, which he placed in contemporary sources, accurately sited, was the cornerstone of historical study. Something of a modernist, he saw it as his duty as a historian to pronounce against those who proffered what he believed was a less than accurate view of the past. Coulton, though, is remembered for more than this confrontational reputation. His extensive scholarship, which extended much further than many historical works at the turn of the century, is rightly seen as important. He also contributed to a widening of the range of medieval studies by his attention to social and economic issues. Furthermore Coulton was keen on extending his learning to a much wider audience than just those in academic circles, being a fine public speaker and writing clearly and lucidly' (Janus St. John's College Web site).
