Heer describes areas sometimes overlooked in general histories of the period, such as the relationship between the aristocracy and the peasantry, love and literature, and even science. All of the standard themes are there as well and are discussed in sufficient detail to provide an overview of the period. Heer looks at issues such as the faith of the church and the people, the crusades, the conflict between Eastern and Western Christianity, various popular religious movements, the rise of the universities and of scholasticism the rise of the nation state, as well as the literature, art, and architecture of the period.

Charlemagne and his world by Friedrich Heer( Book )

17 editions published in 1975 in 3 languages and held by 1,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The name Charlemagne is a corruption of the Latin Carolus Magnus -- Charles the Great. The title was given to Charles, king of the Franks, by the clerics of his entourage. As Charlemagne he became, during the Middle Ages, a fabulous symbol of kingship and chivalry. More poems were written about him than any other king, except the somewhat less historical Arthur. There can be no doubt of his claim to greatness. It is impossible to imagine what European history would have been like without his campaigns, his diplomacy and his imagination -- he shaped its course for a thousand years. It is a mark of his historical importance that he is a national hero of both France and Germany, a unique achievement. - p. 9

"Verglichen mit dem, was Österreich war, sind wir jetzt provinziell. Wittgenstein, Freud, alles Produkte der Kaiserzeit. Danach kam nur noch Friedrich Heer." (Bruno Bettelheim in den Salzburger Nachrichten vom 10.9.1991). "Der geniale Friedrich Heer, ein rückwärts gewandter Prophet, der im eigenen Land nichts galt; mit diesem Buch schrieb er einen Ariadnefaden durch das Labyrinth der verhängnisvollen österreichischen Geschichte: der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts." (Gerhard Roth, 2000) Lange bevor die Diskussion um "kulturelle Identitäten" eingeläutet wurde, hat einer der bedeutendsten österreichischen Kulturhistoriker, Friedrich Heer, die Frage nach einem "Österreichbewusstsein" gestellt. Entstanden ist dabei ein Opus magnum, das 1000 Jahre österreichische Geschichte, von der Begründung der Mark bis zur Zweiten Republik, unter spezifisch geistes- und kulturgeschichtlichen Aspekten vor uns abrollen lässt. Friedrich Heer leistet dabei Pionierarbeit zu politischen Psychologie ebenso wie zur Erkundung der "österreichischen Krankheit", die ein einer prolongierten Identitätskrise besteht. Der Verfasser der "Europäischen Geistesgeschichte" führt die "österreichische Idee" auf den Prüfstand der Geschichte - ein Standardwerk in dritter Auflage wieder lieferbar, aktueller denn je

22 editions published between 1967 and 1968 in German and Undetermined and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Argues that hatred of Jews was based on Catholic and Lutheran theology and that a direct line leads from Christian antisemitism to Hitler's Nazi ideology. Surveys antisemitism from the ancient period (including the New Testament) to the modern period, dealing particularly with the Conversos in Spain, the Dreyfus Affair, and the Nazi persecution of the Jews, for which the author holds Christians responsible because of their silence. Also describes post-World War II antisemitism in the USSR (especially in the press) and in Western Europe, and deplores anti-Jewish theology still prevalent in the Christian Church
