England and Europe in the reign of Henry III (1216-1272) by Ifor W Rowlands( )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in English and held by 1,057 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The close political, economic and cultural ties that developed between England and its neighbours were a defining feature of the rule of Henry III, which permeated nearly all levels of society from the king and his barons to the Church and merchants, artisans and fortune hunters." "The essays that form this volume demonstrate the variety and strength of these contacts between England and her neighbours during Henry's reign, and by seeking to place Henry's England within a broader geographical and thematic range, will contribute to a broader understanding of England's place within thirteenth-century Europe."--Jacket
Kingship, rebellion and political culture : England and Germany, c.1215-c.1250 by Björn Weiler( Book )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the rituals, ceremonies, gestures and actions of kings in the period 1100-1250. Whereas modern English Kingship is commonly seen as "bureaucratic," kingship during the Twelfth Century was a sacral, ritualistic phenomenon. Although focusing predominantly on English political culture, the author also explores the wider European arena to compare their contemporary political cultures and by doing so offer a new conceptual approach to the study of political society in Norman and Angevin England
Thirteenth century England XI by Thirteenth Century Conference( )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Editors: Janet Burton, Björn Weiler, Philipp Schofield, Karen Stöber. The thirteenth century brought the British Isles into ever closer contact with one another, and with medieval Europe as a whole. This international dimension forms a dominant theme of this collection: it features essays on England's relations with the papal court; the adoption of European cultural norms in Scotland; Welsh society and crusading; English landholding in Ireland; and dealings between the kings of England and Navarre. Other papers, on ritual crucifixion, concepts of office and ethcis, and the English royal itinerary, show that the thirteenth century was also a period of profound political and cultural change, witnessing the transformation of legal and economic structures (represented here by case studies of noblewomen and their burial customs; and a prolonged inheritance dispute in Laxton). This volume testifies to the continuing vitality and (with contributors from three continents and six countries) international nature of scholarship on medieval Britain; and moves beyond the Channel to make an important contribution to the history of medieval Europes

12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thirteenth Century England XIV : proceedings of the Aberystwyth and Lampeter Conference, 2011 by Janet Burton( )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The articles collected here reflect the continued and wide interest in England and its neighbours in the years between Magna Carta and the Black Death, with many of them particularly seeking to set England in its European context. There are three many strands to the volume. The first is the social dimension of power, and the norms and practice of politics: attention is drawn to the variety of roles open to members of the clergy, but also peasants and townsmen, and the populace at large. Several chapters, in turn, deal with ways of thinking about power, and with attempts to turn abstract ideals
Thirteenth century England XII : proceedings of the Gregynog Conference 2007 by Janet Burton( )

12 editions published between 1986 and 2012 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 13th century brought the British Isles into ever closer contact with one another, and with medieval Europe as a whole. This international dimension forms a dominant theme of this collection: with essays on England's relations with the papal court; and the adoption of European cultural norms in Scotland
Henry III of England and the Staufen Empire, 1216-1272 by Björn K. U Weiler( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modern historians have frequently maligned Henry III of England (1216-1272) for his entanglements in European affairs. However, this book moves past orthodox opinion to offer a reappraisal of his activities. Using Henry's dealings with the rulers of the Staufen Empire (Germany, Northern France, Northern Italy and Sicily) as a case study to explore the broader international context within which he acted, the author offers a more varied reading of Henry's 'European adventures'." "He shows that far from being an expensive aberration, they reveal the English king as acting within the same parameters and according to the same norms as his peers and contemporaries. Moreover, they provide new insights into the structures and mechanisms, the ideals and institutions which defined the conduct of relations between rulers and realms in the medieval West; medieval politics, it is argued, cannot be understood in isolation from wider movements, ideals and concepts."--BOOK JACKET
Thirteenth century England. proceedings of the Aberystwyth and Lampeter Conference, 2013 by Janet Burton( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The twin themes of authority and resistance are the focus of this volume, explored through topics such as landholding and secular politics, the church and religious orders and contemporary imagery and its reception. Together, the papers combine to illustrate the variety of ways in which historians of the 'long' thirteenth century are able to examine the practices and norms through which individuals and institutions sought to establish their authority, and the ways in which these were open to challenge" -- Provided by publisher

How the past was used : historical cultures, c. 750-2000( Book )

9 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores how societies put the past to use and how, in the process, they represented it: in short, their historical culture. It brings together anthropologists, historians, and literary scholars to address the means by which societies, groups, and individuals have engaged with the past and expressed their understanding of it. 00The utility of the past has proven almost as infinitely variable as the modes of its representation. It might be a matter of learning lessons from experience, or about the legitimacy of a cause or regime, or the reputation of an individual. Rival versions and interpretations reflected, but also helped to create and sustain, divergent communities and world views. With so much at stake, manipulations, distortions, and myths proliferated. But given also that evidence of past societies was fragmentary, fragile, and fraught with difficulties for those who sought to make sense of it, imaginative leaps and creativity necessarily came into the equation
Texts and traditions of medieval pastoral care : essays in honour of Bella Millett by Cate Gunn( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ranging historically from the difficulties of localizing Anglo-Saxon pastoral texts to a study of what women read in late-medieval England, the individual essays survey the development of the genre and its transformation into the literature of vernacular spirituality."--Jacket
Representations of Power in Medieval Germany : 800-1500( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together a group of leading experts on the political history of Germany and the medieval Empire from the Carolingian period to the end of the Middle Ages. Its purpose is to introduce and analyze key concepts in the study of medieval political culture. The representation of power by means of texts, buildings and images is a theme which has long interested historians. However, recent debates and methodological insights have fundamentally altered the way this subject is perceived, opening it up to perspectives unnoticed by its pioneers in the middle of the twentieth century. By taking account of these debates and insights, this volume explores a series of fundamental questions. How was power defined in a medieval context? How was it claimed, legitimized and disputed? What were the moral parameters against which its exercise was judged? How did different spheres of political power interact? What roles were played by texts, images and rituals in the maintenance of, and challenges to, the political order? The contributors bring varied and original approaches to these and other questions, illuminating the complex power relationships which determined the changing political history of medieval Germany

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The articles collected here reflect the continued and wide interest in England and its neighbours in the years between Magna Carta and the Black Death, with many of them particularly seeking to set England in its European context. There are three main strands to the volume. The first is the social dimension of power, and the norms and practice of politics: attention is drawn to the variety of roles open to members of the clergy, but also peasants and townsmen, and the populace at large. Several chapters explore the manifestations and instruments of social identity, such as the seals used by the leading elites of thirteenth-century London, and the marriage practices of the English aristocracy. The third main focus is the uses of the past. Matthew Paris, the most famous chronicler of the period, receives due attention, in particular his changing attitude towards the monarch, but the Vita Edwardi Secundi's portrayal of Thomas of Lancaster and the Anglo-Norman Prose Brut are also considered.
