9780582490055: The Frankish Kingdoms Under the Carolingians 751-987

An exciting examination of the entire history of the Carolingian 'dynasty' in western Europe. The author shows the whole period to be one of immense political, religious. cultural and intellectual dynamism; not only did it lay the foundations of the governmental and administrative institutions of Europe and the organisation of the Church, but it also securely established the intellectual and cultural traditions which were to dominate western Christendom for centuries to come.

From the Back Cover:

This is the first modern book in any language to examine the entire history of the Carolingian 'dynasty' in western Europe in its full social, political and cultural context. Rosamond McKitterick's account of the Carolingian kings from Pippin III (751-768) to Louis V (986-987) is not told simply in terms of the rise and fall of a line which made, but could not hold, an empire; rather, she presents the Carolingian kings as remarkable succession of, for the most part, able rulers who raised themselves above their peers, extended their authority and landed wealth, and were only gradually ousted by contemporaries similarly hungry for power.

Review:

'Above all there is on numerous matters a depth which only a scholar with the author's vast knowledge of the manuscript sources could provide. This book will take a secure place among modern accounts of the Carolingian period.'
