Book Description

For fifty years debate has raged about early European commerce during the period between antiquity and the middle ages. Was there trade? If so, in what - and with whom? New evidence and new ways of looking at old evidence are now breaking the stalemate. Analysis of communications - the movements of people, ideas and things - is transforming our vision of Europe and the Mediterranean in the age of Charlemagne and Harun al Rashid. This is the first comprehensive analysis of the economic transition during this period for over sixty years. Using new materials and new methodology, it will attract all social and economic historians of antiquity and the middle ages, and anyone concerned with the origins of Europe, the history of the slave trade, medicine and disease, cross-cultural contacts, and the Muslim and Byzantine worlds.

Books By Author Michael McCormick

Medieval Cities by Michael McCormick Medieval Cities, Paperback (June 2014)

Nearly a century after it was first published in 1925, Medieval Cities remains one of the most provocative works of medieval history ever written. This book argues that it was not the invasion of the Germanic tribes that destroyed the civilization of antiquity, but rather the closing of Mediterranean trade by Arab conquest in the seventh century.

Charlemagne's Survey of the Holy Land by Michael McCormick Charlemagne's Survey of the Holy Land, Hardback (November 2011)

Michael McCormick rehabilitates a neglected source from Charlemagne's revival of the Roman empire: the report of a fact-finding mission to the Christian church of the Holy Land. It preserves the most detailed statistical portrait before the Domesday Book of the finances, monuments, and female and male personnel of any major Christian church.

Eternal Victory by Michael McCormick Eternal Victory, Paperback (June 1990)

A study of how the imperial ceremonies associated with the glorification of an emperor's triumphal rulership developed, and how they influenced both eastern and western heirs to the Roman legacy. The resurgence of the Roman triumph is documented from the Tetrarchy down to Charlemagne's successors.
