9781551114927: Carolingian Civilization: A Reader, Second Edition (Readings in Medieval Civilizations and Cultures)

The period between 770 and 880 experienced an explosion of words signalling the documentary reawakening of Western civilization; this anthology offers a plentiful and engaging selection of primary source documents from that vibrant era.

Among the material new to this second edition are Rimbert's Life of Anskar, with its detailed account of the Carolingian missionary contact with Scandinavia, Ratramnus's study of the dog-headed men, the monk Bernard's Journey to Jerusalem, new specimens of popular beliefs, Audradus Modicus's complete Book of Revelations, and new maps and illustrations.

About the Author:

Paul Edward Dutton, Professor of Humanities at Simon Fraser University, is the author of a number of articles and books about the Middle Ages including The Poetry and Paintings of the First Bible of Charles the Bald with Herbert L. Kessler (University of Michigan Press, 1997) and Charlemagne's Mustache and Other Cultural Clusters of a Dark Age (Palgrave, 2004). He is Series Editor of UTP's Readings in Medieval Civilizations and Cultures.

Review:

Paul Dutton's Carolingian Civilization and Charlemagne's Courtier have revolutionized the teaching of 8th- and 9th-century western European history and made this fascinating period available to new generations of students who lack the Latin to access the sources in the original for themselves.

(Sarah Foot, University of Sheffield)

I've been teaching the 'Age of Charlemagne' for 25 years. Thanks to Paul Dutton, I finally have the book I need to make this age come alive.

(Charles R. Bowlus, Professor Emeritus, University of Arkansas at Little Rock)
