Charlemagne by Dr. Joanna Story

Book Description

The age of Charlemagne was a crucible for change in the history of Europe, bridging the divide between the medieval and the classical worlds and setting the political and cultural tone for centuries to come. This book focuses directly on the reign of Charlemagne, bringing together a wide range of approaches and sources from the diverse voices of fifteen of the top scholars of early medieval Europe. The contributors have taken a number of original aproaches to the subject, from the fields of archaeology and numismatics to thoroughly-researched essays on key historical texts. The essays are embedded in the scholarship of recent decades but also offer insights into new areas and new approaches for research. A full bibliography of works in English as well as key reading in European languages is provided, making the volume essential reading for experienced scholars as well as students new to the history of the early middle ages.

Heaven and Earth in Anglo-Saxon England by Dr. Joanna Story Heaven and Earth in Anglo-Saxon England, Hardback (November 2013)

Christian theology and religious belief were crucially important to Anglo-Saxon society, yet this book is the first full-length study investigating how it permeated and underpinned society. For whilst the influence of the Church as an institution is widely acknowledged.

Bede and the End of Time by Dr. Joanna Story Bede and the End of Time, Hardback (January 2012)

Bede (c 673-735) was the leading intellectual figure of the Anglo-Saxon Church, and his writings had a profound influence on the development of English Christian thought. This book provides a comprehensive analysis of Bede's eschatological thought and its impact upon the Anglo-Saxon period.

Women's Names in Old English by Dr. Joanna Story Women's Names in Old English, Hardback (July 2010)

A study into the issue of vernacular names in Old English documents. It challenges the generally accepted notion that the sex of an individual is definitively indicated by the grammatical gender of their name. It is suitable for those with an interest in Old English manuscripts or early medieval history.

Reconstructs the late Anglo-Saxon history of the church of Worcester, covering the period between Bishops Waerferth and Wulfstan II. This volume also considers ecclesiastical organization and pastoral care in the diocese of Worcester, by looking at the relations between the cathedral church and the other churches in the diocese.
