Emperor, prefects & kings : the Roman West, 395-565 by P. S Barnwell( Book )

21 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

P.S. Barnwell examines the development of imperial and royal government in the western part of the Roman Empire and in the early "barbarian" kingdoms that were established within its frontiers - the Visigothic, Burgundian, Frankish, and Vandal nations. Covering the fifth century - the period from the death of the Emperor Theodosius to the death of the Emperor Justinian - Barnwell's book demonstrates the extent to which barbarian government was influenced by its Roman predecessor. Earlier studies have argued implicitly that the fifth century witnessed the disintegration of an ordered Roman governmental system and its replacement by a series of disorganized "Germanic" administrations. Barnwell, by contrast, examines Roman government of the fifth-century western Empire on its own terms, and then analyzes the administrations of individual Barbarian kingdoms in relation to this fifth-century Roman background. He shows that the law and government of the Barbarian kingdoms were more deeply indebted to Roman institutions than most previous historians have realized

Medieval legal process : physical, spoken and written performance in the Middle Ages( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In medieval legal transactions the use of the written word was only one of many ways of conducting business. Important roles were played by the spoken word and by the 'action' of ritual. The relationship between 'rituals' and literacy has been the focus of much recent research. Medieval societies which made extensive use of written instruments in legal transactions have been shown to employ rituals as well. This has ledto investigation of the respective functions of written instruments and legal rituals. What is the nature of legal rituals? If they included oral verbalization, how did the spoken words relate to those of the written instruments that played a role in the same legal transactions? Usually, we only have the written documents to answer these questions, and they are often silent about the rituals and oral elements of the transactions they document

Late Medieval liturgies enacted : the experience of worship in cathedral and parish church by Sally Harper( )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book critically explores ways in which our understanding of late medieval liturgy can enhanced through present-day enactment. The book seeks to address the complex of ritual, devotional, musical, physical and architectural elements that constitute medieval Latin liturgy, the interaction of which can be so difficult to recover other than through practice. In contrast with previous studies of reconstructed liturgies, enactment was not the exclusive end-goal of the project; rather it has created a new set of data for interpretation and further enquiry. Though based on a foundation of historical musicological, textual, architectural and archaeological research, new methods of investigation are explored, tested and validate throughout. A distinctive feature of the work is that it seeks to understand the experience of different groups within the medieval church – the clergy, their assistant, the singers, and the laity – as they participated in different kinds of rituals in both a large cathedral and a small parish church. Some of the conclusions challenge interpretations of these experiences which have been current since the Reformation. In addition, some consideration is given to the implications of understanding past liturgy for present-day worship. – Provided by publisher

Britons, Saxons, and Scandinavians : the historical geography of Glanville R.J. Jones by G. R. J Jones( Book )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains a selection of the collected papers of the late Professor Glanville R.J. Jones. Following a brief assessment of the man and his work, by J. Beverley Smith, an extensive introductory essay by the editors sets Jones's work in a wide historiographical context. This material provides an overview of his 'multiple estate' model and concludes with an assessment of its continuing relevance in the twenty-first century. The selection of his published papers then begins with Welsh roots and the work from which his ideas grew, while the remaining items show how the questions he asked led him towards explorations of 'early' medieval estate structures in England, their links with rural settlement evolution, and the pragmatic, tenurial, and fiscal arrangements which bound individual rural settlements into broader spatial structures. Jones's ideas are often cited -- usually, but not invariably, with praise -- and this corpus is intended to allow today's scholars to reach a mature assessment of what he achieved. Right or wrong, he presented important challenges to the various disciplines working on the archaeology, history, and historical geography of the periods before and after the Norman Conquest of 1066

Manchester - the warehouse legacy : introduction and guide by Simon Taylor( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Manchester is known for its cotton mills, the Town Hall and its imposing commercial architecture, but it is textile warehouses that provide the distinctive element in its streetscape and make it unlike any other town in England. These warehouses were only built during the century following 1825 - a relatively short time in the history of Manchester - and were never found throughout the city. However they are intimately connected with Manchester's past position as the centre for the manufacturing and selling of cotton goods within England and to other parts of the world. Their monumental scale
