9780691026039: Phantoms of Remembrance: Memory and Oblivion at the End of the First Millenium

In Phantoms of Remembrance, Patrick Geary makes important new inroads into the widely discussed topic of historical memory, vividly evoking the everyday lives of eleventh-century people and both their written and nonwritten ways of preserving the past. Women praying for their dead, monks creating and re-creating their archives, scribes choosing which royal families of the past to applaud and which to forget: it is from such sources that most of our knowledge of the medieval period comes. Throughout richly detailed descriptions of various acts of remembrance--including the naming of children and the recording of visions--the author unearths a wide range of approaches to preserving the past as it was or formulating the past that an individual or group prefers to imagine.

From the Inside Flap:

"A strikingly original study of the ways in which men and women of the eleventh century recorded, interpreted, and used their memories of the past. . . . [Geary] has made a significant contribution to our understanding of [this] period but to the wider discipline of medieval studies."--Thomas Head, Washington University, St. Louis

About the Author:
