The princely court : medieval courts and culture in North-West Europe, 1270-1380 by M. G. A Vale( )

31 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 1,922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He shows how, despite the pressures of political fragmentation, unrest, and a nascent awareness of national identity, a common culture began to emerge in English, French, Flemish, and Dutch court societies at this time. The result is both a ground-breaking re-evaluation of the nature and role of the court in European history and a celebration of a forgotten age."--Jacket

11 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Hundred Years' War was a series of conflicts waged from 1337 to 1453 between the Kingdom of England and the Kingdom of France for control of the French throne. Many allies of both sides were also drawn into the conflict. The war had its roots in a dynastic disagreement dating back to the time of William the Conqueror, who became King of England in 1066 while retaining possession of the Duchy of Normandy in France. As the rulers of Normandy and other lands on the continent, the English kings owed feudal homage to the king of France. In 1337, Edward III of England refused to pay homage to Philip VI of France, leading the French king to claim confiscation of Edward's lands in Aquitaine."--Wikipedia

Contact and exchange in later Medieval Europe : essays in honour of Malcolm Vale by Hannah Skoda( )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The processes by which ideas, objects, texts and political thought and experience moved across boundaries in the Middle Ages form the focus of this book, which also seeks to reassess the nature of the boundaries themselves; it thus appropriately reflects a major theme of Dr Malcolm Vale's work, which the essays collected here honour. They suggest ways of breaking down established historiographical paradigms of Europe as a set of distinct polities, achieving a more nuanced picture in which people and objects were constantly moving, and challenging previous conceptions of units and borders. The first section examines the construction of boundaries and units in the later Middle Ages, via topics ranging from linguistic units to social stratifications, and geographically from the Netherlands and Scotland to Gascony and the Iberian peninsula; it reveals how much the relationship between exchange and boundaries was reciprocal. The second section considers the mechanisms by which it took place, from West Africa to Italy and Flanders, and discusses the actual exchange of people, texts, and unusual artefacts. Overall, the essays bear witness to the constant interplay and interconnections throughout medieval Europe and beyond
Henry V : the conscience of the king by M. G. A Vale( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than just a single-minded warrior-king, Henry V comes to life in this fresh account as a gifted ruler acutely conscious of spiritual matters and his subjects' welfare Shakespeare's centuries-old portrayal of Henry V established the king's reputation as a warmongering monarch, a perception that has persisted ever since. But in this exciting, thoroughly researched volume a different view of Henry emerges: a multidimensional ruler of great piety, a hands-on governor who introduced a radically new conception of England's European role in secular and ecclesiastical affairs, a composer of music, an art patron, and a dutiful king who fully appreciated his obligations toward those he ruled. Historian Malcolm Vale draws on extensive primary archival evidence that includes many documents annotated or endorsed in Henry's own hand. Focusing on a series of themes--the interaction between king and church, the rise of the English language as a medium of government and politics, the role of ceremony in Henry's kingship, and more--Vale revises understandings of Henry V and his conduct of the everyday affairs of England, Normandy, and the kingdom of France."--Publisher description
The ancient enemy : England, France, and Europe from the Angevins to the Tudors, 1154-1558 by M. G. A Vale( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book traces the origins and evolution of the enmity between England and France over the four hundred years in which England was a continental European land power. It argues that medieval and early modern England, like Britain today, was a two-faced polity: one face looked westward and northward towards its Celtic neighbours; the other faced eastward and southward towards continental Europe. A major objective of English rulers over this period was to keep the coastline of north-west Europe and its hinterland out of the hands of a single power. French attempts to penetrate and infiltrate the Low Countries were therefore consistently resisted. Ultimately, from the reign of Edward III onwards, the French throne itself became the object of English ambitions and the book discusses the implications of Henry V's pursuit of that claim and its aftermath. It emphasizes the extent to which the story of Joan of Arc has become a myth which has contributed its share to the perpetuation of Anglo-French estrangement. The book also examines the emergence of English national identity and the part played by language in this process, as the English increasingly defined themselves against their French enemy. But the common assumptions, behavioural patterns, and culture which bound the upper ranks of English and French society together throughout this period are also stressed. The book ends with a discussion of the legacy left by this c̀ontinentalist' phase of English history to the changed, but by no means totally transformed, world of early modern Europe."--Jacket

Covering a thousand years of history, this volume tells the story of the creation of Western civilization in Europe and the Mediterranean. Now available in a compact, more convenient format, it offers the same text and many of the illustrations which first appeared in the widely acclaimed Oxford Illustrated History of Medieval Europe. Written by expert scholars and based on the latest research, the book explores a period of profound diversity and change, focusing on all aspects of medieval history from the empires and kingdoms of Charlemagne and the Byzantines to the new nations which fought the Hundred Years War. The Oxford History of the Medieval World also examines such intriguing cultural subjects as the chivalric code of knights, popular festivals, and the proliferation of new art forms, and the catastrophic social effect of the Black Death
