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

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

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.

The defender of the peace by Marsilius( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The Defender of the Peace of Marsilius of Padua is an influential text in the history of western political thought. Marsilius offers a detailed analysis and explanation of human political communities, before going on to attack what he sees as the obstacles to peaceful human coexistence - principally the contemporary papacy. Annabel Brett's authoritative rendition of the Defensor Pacis is the first new translation in English for fifty years, and a major contribution to the series of Cambridge Texts: all of the usual series features are provided, including chronology, notes for further reading, and up-to-date annotation aimed at the student reader encountering this classic of medieval thought for the first time. This new edition of The Defender of the Peace is a scholarly and a pedagogic event of great importance, of interest to historians, political theorists, theologians and philosopher at all levels from second-year undergraduate upwards."--Jacket
