♥ Book Title : The Carolingian Chronicles: Book 2: Beacon in the Medieval Darkness
☯ Full Synopsis : "King Charlemagne waits impatiently for Oliver's return. Will his Peer find Hildegard, the love of his life; or has he lost her forever? Will his siege of Pavia succeed and, finally, cut the legs off the Lombard king's obsession with overtaking his realm? The King continues to fight the Saxons, re-organizes the church, and implements educational opportunities for his people. At the same time, his two most-beloved Peers - Roland and Oliver - struggle to win the love of the same woman. His family grows, as he delightedly welcomes a daughter and another son. His power increases but so do personal threats to his family and military expectations from the Pope. His domestic happiness, his wife's insightful mind and compassionate nature, his growing governing abilities, his soldier's mind - all aid in securing and improving the lives of his people. Still, death and invasion threaten; poverty and ignorance abound. Betrayal seethes in the air. Become a member of King Charlemagne's court, join his king's guard, see him from the eyes of a Peer. And understand the story behind the 'beacon in the darkness' of Europe's medieval age."Article| Acacia Oak| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Anvil of God
☯ Full Synopsis : "It is 741. After subduing the pagan religions in the east, halting the march of Islam in the west, and conquering the continent for the Merovingian kings, mayor of the palace Charles the Hammer has one final ambition—the throne. Only one thing stands in his way—he is dying. Charles cobbles together a plan to divide the kingdom among his three sons, betroth his daughter to a Lombard prince to secure his southern border, and keep the Church unified behind them through his friend Bishop Boniface. Despite his best efforts, the only thing to reign after Charles’s death is chaos. His daughter has no intention of marrying anyone, let alone a Lombard prince. His two eldest sons question the rights of their younger pagan stepbrother, and the Church demands a steep price for their support. Son battles son, Christianity battles paganism, and Charles’s daughter flees his court for an enemy’s love. Based on a true story, Anvil of God is a whirlwind of love, honor, sacrifice, and betrayal that follows a bereaved family’s relentless quest for power and destiny."Article| J.

♥ Book Title : Rhetoric and the Discourses of Power in Court Culture
☯ Full Synopsis : "Key imperial and royal courts--in Han, Tang, and Song dynasty China; medieval and renaissance Europe; and Heian and Muromachi Japan--are examined in this comparative and interdisciplinary volume as loci of power and as entities that establish, influence, or counter the norms of a larger society. Contributions by twelve scholars are organized into sections on the rhetoric of persuasion, taste, communication, gender, and natural nobility. Writing from the perspectives of literature, history, and philosophy, the authors examine the use and purpose of rhetoric in their respective areas. In Rhetoric of Persuasion, we see that in both the third-century court of the last Han emperor and the fourteenth-century court of Edward II, rhetoric served to justify the deposition of a ruler and the establishment of a new regime. Rhetoric of Taste examines the court�s influence on aesthetic values in China and Japan, specifically literary tastes in ninth-century China, the melding of literary and historical texts into a sort of national history in fifteenth-century Japan, and the embrace of literati painting innovations in twelfth-century China during a time when the literati themselves were out of favor. Rhetoric of Communication considers official communications to the throne in third-century China, the importance of secret communications in Charlemagne�s court, and the implications of the use of classical Chinese in the Japanese court during the eighth and ninth centuries. Rhetoric of Gender offers the biography of a former Han emperor�s favorite consort and studies the metaphorical possibilities of Tang palace plaints. Rhetoric of Natural Nobility focuses on Dante�s efforts to confirm his nobility of soul as a poet, surmounting his non-noble ancestry, and the development of the texts that supported the political ideologies of the fifteenth-century Burgundian dukes Philip the Good and Charles the Bold."Article| David R.

♥ Book Title : Carolingian Coinage and the Vikings
☯ Full Synopsis : "This volume brings together for the first time Simon Coupland's series of significant articles on Carolingian coinage. The author draws out the economic and political implications of coin types and coin hoards from the reign of Charlemagne to the Edict of Pîtres in 864. This numismatic survey is complemented by other studies which use the evidence of coinage and contemporary texts to consider aspects of trade and power in the ninth century, particularly the impact of the Viking raids."Article| Simon Coupland| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Medieval Chronicle VII.
☯ Full Synopsis : "There are several reasons why the chronicle is particularly suited as the topic of a yearbook. In the first place there is its ubiquity: all over Europe and throughout the Middle Ages chronicles were written, both in Latin and in the vernacular, and not only in Europe but also in the countries neighbouring on it, like those of the Arabic world. Secondly, all chronicles raise such questions as by whom, for whom, or for what purpose were they written, how do they reconstruct the past, what determined the choice of verse or prose, or what kind of literary influences are discernable in them. Finally, many chronicles have been beautifully illuminated, and the relation between text and image leads to a wholly different set of questions. The yearbook The Medieval Chronicle aims to provide a representative survey of the on-going research in the field of chronicle studies, illustrated by examples from specific chronicles from a wide variety of countries, periods and cultural backgrounds. The Medieval Chronicle is published in cooperation with the "Medieval Chronicle Society"."Article| Juliana Dresvina| Statement ..."
