The battle of Vouille, 507 CE : where France began( )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 964 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume highlights the heretofore largely neglected Battle of Vouillé in 507 CE, when the Frankish King Clovis defeated Alaric II, the King of the Visigoths. Clovis' victory proved a crucial step in the expulsion of the Visigoths from Francia into Spain, thereby leaving Gaul largely to the Franks. It was arguably in the wake of Vouillé that Gaul became Francia, and that "France began." The editors have united an international team of experts on Late Antiquity and the Merovingian Kingdoms to reexamine the battle from multiple as well as interdisciplinary perspectives. The contributions address questions of military strategy, geographical location, archaeological footprint, political background, religious propaganda, consequences (both in Francia and in Italy), and significance. There is a strong focus on the close reading of primary source-material, both textual and material, secular and theological
Romans, barbarians, and the transformation of the Roman world : cultural interaction and the creation of identity in late antiquity by Danuta Shanzer( )

22 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most significant transformations of the Roman world in Late Aniquity was the integration of barbarian peoples into the social, cultural, religious, and political milieu of the Medierranean world ... These 25 studies do much to break down old stereotypes about the cultural and social segregation of Roman and barbarian populations, and demonstrate that, contrary to the past orthodoxy, Romans and barbarians interacted in a multitude of ways, and it was not just barbarians who experienced 'ethnogenesis' or cultural assimilation. The same Romans who disparaged barbarian behavior also adopted aspects of it in their everyday lives, providing graphic examples of the ambiguity and negotiation that characterized the integration of Romans and barbarians, a process that altered the concepts of identity of both populations. The resultant late antique polyethnic cultural world, with cultural frontiers beween Romans and barbarians that became increasingly permeable in both directions, does much to help explain how the barbarian settlement of the west was accomplished with much less disruption than there might have been, and how barbarian populations were integrated seamlessly into the old Roman world"--Publisher description, p. [4] of dust jacket
A philosophical and literary commentary on Martianus Capella's De nuptiis Philologiae et Mercurii by Danuta Shanzer( Book )

Society and culture in late antique Gaul : revisiting the sources by Ralph Mathisen( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Late Roman Gaul is often seen either from a classical Roman perspective as an imperial province in decay and under constant threat from barbarian invasion or settlement, or from the medieval one, as the cradle of modern France and Germany. Standard texts and "moments" have emerged and been canonized in the scholarship on the period, be it Gaul aflame in 407 or the much-disputed baptism of Clovis in 496/508. This volume avoids such stereotypes. It brings together state-of-the-art work in archaeology, literary, social, and religious history, philology, philosophy, epigraphy, and numismatics not only to examine under-used and new sources for the period, but also critically to reexamine a few of the old standards. This will provide a fresh view of various more unusual aspects of late Roman Gaul, and also, it is hoped, serve as a model for ways of interpreting the late Roman sources for other areas, times, and contexts.

Handschriften und Papyri Wege des Wissens by Daniela E Mairhofer( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wissen, Information und Vernetzung waren in der vormodernen Welt ebenso wie heute eine wesentliche Voraussetzung für den Erfolg in Gesellschaft, Wissenschaft und Wirtschaft. Aber die Vermittlung von Wissen war in der Zeit vor dem Buchdruck schwierig und mühevoll? und die Verbreitung von Schriftgut ebenso wie der Transport von brieflichen Mitteilungen ein heikles und langwieriges Unterfangen. Umso wichtiger war die Pflege von persönlichen Netzwerken: Antike Papyri und mittelalterliche Handschriften waren die Medien der Vermittlung und des Austausches. Sie legen beredtes Zeugnis ab von den Bemühungen der Menschen um den Zugang zu Bildung und Literatur, illustrieren aber auch die Verbreitung von Nachrichten über die oftmals weit gespannten Netzwerke der Kommunikation. Fast alles, was wir heute an schriftlichem Kulturgut des Altertums besitzen, ist über diese "Wege des Wissens" überliefert."--Page 9
