The chronicle of Henry of Livonia by Henricus( Book )

24 editions published between 1740 and 2004 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The only English translation available of the most important first-hand account of the "Northern Crusades" in the Baltic states has finally been reprinted, with additional maps and a revised introduction by James A. Brundage. Henry's chronicle is the only surviving evidence for many episodes in the early stages of Christendom in the Eastern Baltic. In describing sights, sounds, and even the personal appearance and quirks of many of the people he encountered, Henry of Livonia provides us with an invaluable and deeply human history. The pope's call for a renewed holy war at the end of the twelfth century inspired not only the famous crusades in the Middle East but also a series of less celebrated yet decidedly more successful Northern Crusades. At the time, the region of Livonia (presentday Estonia and Latvia) was a crossroads of Germanic, Scandinavian, and Russian trade, culture, and religion. The Chronicle of Henry of Livonia provides insight into not only military operations in the East during this tumultuous period but also the conflicted attitudes of an eyewitness, revealing the complex melding of religious motives with political aims

"Professor Brundage explains the origins of canon law in the early Christian church, and its gradual development through to its full flowering in the age of Gratian and the schools of law in the classical period (1140-1375)." "In addition, as well as a Select Bibliography, there are two invaluable Appendices: the first explains the Romano-canonical citation system (a challenge that would defeat a lesser pen, but to which Professor Brundage rises superbly), and the second offers biographical notes on the major canonists of the classical period."--Jacket
