The deeds of Frederick Barbarossa by Otto( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bishop Otto of Freising, maternal uncle of Frederick Barbarossa, had already acquired a reputation as a major historian for his work the Two Cities before he began the official biography of the great medieval German emperor. Although The Deeds of Frederick Barbarossa covers only the first eight years of Frederick's long and eventful reign, it illuminates that period when, as Professor Mierow says, 'Frederick's star shone most brightly. Succeeding to a disorganized realm, he restored order at home and prestige abroad; imperial control was reestablished in Burgundy, and an Imperial party in Italy.'"--Jacket
The Carolingian empire by Heinrich Fichtenau( Book )

3 editions published between 1978 and 2000 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book deals with the heyday of Frankish rule in Europe, but it does not claim to be a complete history of that rule. Its precise object is to render an account of the attempt to give an inner unity and solidity to the newly founded Frankish state. The prospects for the success of this attempt depended on two things: the formation of a class of officials to make centralized government possible; and the force of an idea, the idea of the Christian Empire, to justify the exercise of power." [Preface]

Las mocedades de Rodrigo = The youthful deeds of Rodrigo, the Cid by Matthew Bailey( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perhaps the most famous Castilian in history, Rodrigo Diaz - also knows as 'the Cid' - lived in the second half of the eleventh century and distinguished himself during the conquest of the Muslim kingdom of Valencia. The epic poem Las Mocedades de Rodrigo (The Youthful Deeds of Rodrigo) is a fictional account of the young Rodrigo's passage from impetuous initiate to menacing force of nature, and, finally, to ally and servitor of his king. Written around 1300, the poem garnered a significant reputation in its native Spain and is still widely read today. Despite its popularity, an English translation has never been published." "This bilingual edition offers both the Old Spanish version of Las Mocedades as well as the first English translation of the epic poem. In his introduction, Matthew Bailey examines the text as a compilation of oral narratives passed down from speakers to scribes. Situating it fully within the tradition of Spanish epic poetry, Bailey goes on to review the poem's critical reception, explains the hybrid nature of the narrative, and looks at the origins of the hero himself. The translation includes explanatory notes to help the contemporary English-language reader understand the social and political circumstances surrounding the poem. For those interested in the poetry of medieval Spain, the epic tradition, or for anyone looking for a good adventure story, Las Mocedades de Rodrigo will be essential reading."--Jacket

Ancient writing and its influence by B. L Ullman( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ancient Writing and Its Influence was the first book in English to cover the history of the alphabet, Greek palaeography and epigraphy, Latin palaeography and epigraphy, and the origins of printing. Today, it remains a sound, concise, and expert introduction to these four closely related disciplines, written by one of the master palaeographers of the twentieth century. Among the wide range of topics included are the development of the Latin alphabet, the Gothic script of the Late Middle Ages, and the writing materials and practices of antiquity." - COPAC
Andrew of Longjumeau( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andrew of Longjumeau led one of several missions (1245-1247) sent to the Mongol leaders by Pope Innocent IV. He set out from Lyon in the spring of 1245 and travelled through Syria and Persia delivering his papal correspondence near Tabriz. Andrew made a second mission to the Mongols (1249-1251) as an ambassador of the French King, Louis IX. This party set out from Cyprus in January 1249 reaching the port of Antioch in Syria and then proceeding through Persia to the Mongol court. On his return Andrew made his report to the French King at Caesarea in Palestine in 1251. See details in the writings of William of Rubruck

Self and society in Medieval France : the memoirs of Abbot Guibert of Nogent (1064?-c. 1125) by Guibert( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author gives a unique picture of life and northwestern France at the turn of the twelfth century. He shows not only the glories but also the tensions of this transitional age, which gave birth to the reform of the Church, to new intellectual and spiritual movements, and to far-reaching social and economic developments, but which at the same time saw growing resistance to the established authority of the Church and feudal aristocracy, the turbulence of the rising urban classes, and the first stirrings of doubt with regard to many traditional beliefs.
