9781137602718: Rediscovering Sainthood in Italy: Hagiography and the Late Antique Past in Medieval Ravenna (The New Middle Ages)

Beginning with Saint Barbatianus, a fifth-century wonderworking monk and confessor to the Empress Galla Placidia, this book focuses on the changes in the religious landscape of Ravenna, a former capital of the Late Roman Empire, through the Middle Ages. During this period, written stories about saints and their relics not only offered guidance and solace but were also used by those living among the ruins of a once great city―particularly its archbishops, monks, and the urban aristocracy―to reflect on its past glory. This practice remained important to the citizens of Ravenna as they came to terms with the city’s revival and renewed relevance in the tenth century under Ottonian rule. In using the vita of Barbatianus as a central text, Edward M. Schoolman explores how saints and sanctity were created and ultimately came to influence complex political and social networks, from the Late Roman Empire to the High Middle Ages.

About the Author:

Edward M. Schoolman is Assistant Professor of History at the University of Nevada, Reno, USA.

Review:

“Ravenna's glistening Late Antique mosaics continued to impress its medieval citizens as they strove to create their own usable history. Edward M. Schoolman's book uses the enigmatic hagiographical dossier of St. Barbatianus to describe how monks and bishops, nobles and emperors, were attempting to understand and negotiate the past and future of a Late Antique city in a changing medieval world. One of the best attempts to date at linking saints' lives to social history.” (John Howe, Professor of Medieval History, Texas Tech University, USA, and author of “Before the Gregorian Reform: The Latin Church at the Turn of the First Millennium”)
