Charlemagne's Courtier

£19.99

Product description

The book has light general handling marks and indentations on the cover; light rubbing to corners and spine ends. Dutton begins with An Introduction to Einhard and provides a Selected Bibliography for Students. The book was prepared with students in mind. Among the readings included are The Life of Charlemagne, The Charters, Art and Architecture, and The Translation and Miracles of the Blessed Martyrs, Marcellinus and Peter. Einhard's descriptions of the sick, the lame, and the blind of northern Europe vividly expose us to a side of medieval life too rarely encountered in other medieval sources. "This is the first really complete Einhard. The intriguing personality of the biographer of Charlemangne, the small man of far-ranging activities, emerges in all its complexity - as statesman and manager, as relic-thief and loving husband, and as a peace-maker struggling for his own Faith, Paul Dutton assembles all his works and letters and all contemporary references in a new and sensitive translation." - Johannes Freid, University of Frankfurt.
