It incorporates the findings of the most recent scholarship in the field - the new text, for instance, includes interesting material on the role of women in Anglo-Norman England."--BOOK JACKET

Writing medieval biography, 750-1250 : essays in honour of Professor Frank Barlow by David Bates( )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 388 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

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

16 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 291 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."--Jacket
