The feudal kingdom of England, 1042-1216 by Frank Barlow( Book )

107 editions published between 1955 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,900 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now in its fifth edition, this hugely successful text remains as vivid and readable as ever. Frank Barlow illuminates every aspect of the Anglo-Norman world, but the central appeal of the book continues to be its firm narrative structure. Here is a fascinating story compellingly told. At the beginning of the period he shows us an England that is still, politically and culturally, on the fringe of the classical world. By the end of John's reign, the new world that has emerged was in outlook, structure and character, recognisable as part of the modern age. Incorporating the findings of the most re

"William II (Old Norman: Williame II; c.{7f2009}1056 ? 2 August 1100), the third son of William I of England, was King of England from 1087 until 1100, with powers over Normandy, and influence in Scotland. He was less successful in extending control into Wales. William is commonly known as William Rufus, perhaps because of his red-faced appearance."--Wikipedia

The Carmen de Hastingae proelio of Guy, Bishop of Amiens by Wido( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Carmen de Hastingae Proelio is one of the most discussed sources for the Norman Conquest of England. Its authorship and date cannot be established entirely beyond dispute, but the weight of scholarly opinion supports a date of composition of 1068 or earlier, by Guy, bishop of Amiens, thus making it the earliest surviving account. It was known to Orderic Vitalis, one of the great chroniclers of the period, writing about 1124-5, and remains a source of intrinsic interest and importance. It is an epic poem, concerned with some of the most momentous events of a remarkable year, in which Halley's comet was a disturbing portent of undisclosed disasters." "For this second edition, Frank Barlow has written an entirely new and substantial historical introduction, incorporating the scholarly research of a generation. He has also provided a fresh translation and notes, as well as revising the Latin text of the l972 edition by Catherine Morton and Hope Muntz."--BOOK JACKET
Writing medieval biography, 750-1250 : essays in honour of Professor Frank Barlow by David Bates( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Biography is one of the oldest, most popular and most tenacious of literary forms. Perhaps the best attested narrative form of the Middle Ages, it continues to draw modern historians of the medieval period to its peculiar challenge to explicate the general through the particular: the biographer's decisions to impose or to resist the imposition of order on biographical remnants raise issues which go to the heart of historical method. This collection, compiled in honour of a distinguished modern exponent of the art of biography, contains sixteen essays by leading scholars which examine the limits and possibilities of the genre for the period between 750AD and 1250AD. Ranging from pivotal figures such as Charlemagne, William the Conqueror and St Bernard, to the anonymous female skeleton in an Anglo-Saxon grave, from kings and queens to clerks and saints, and from individual to the collective biographies, this collection investigates both medieval biographical writings, and the issues surrounding the writing of medieval lives"--Editor
