The Frankish world, 750-900. First Edition

£29.99

Product description

Published by the Hambledon Press 1996. Fine condition in dustjacket, no inscriptions. "In these essays Carolingian government is explored through the workings of courts and assemblies; through administrative texts; through contemporaries' historical writing; through the rituals, looking back to Roman times and reflecting the long continuity of administration in the areas constituting Francia that supplemented and reinforced social and political solidarities.; and through the ideological and material dilemmas confronted by 9th-century churchmen: the material wealth of the church, a necessary precondition to its influence, attracted a variety of private interests that inhibited its ability to perform its public duty.;The author extends her perspective to include the settlement of disputes, often without recourse to courts or to conflict, and the application of law. She also includes an assessment of the impact of the Vikings. An introduction sets Francia in context and outlines its main features. More recent work on gender history is represented here by studies of the political, intellectual and religious activities of women in the Frankish world. Although circumscribed, the activities of women acting on their own will can be clearly detected. While the male authorship of nearly all early medieval texts has usually been taken for granted, the author makes a case for the possibility that a number were written for women"
