In this classic textbook history of early medieval Europe, Roger Collins provides a comprehensive account of the centuries during which Europe changed from being an abstract geographical expression to a new culturally coherent, if politically divided, entity. This essential volume:

  • examines how the social, economic and cultural structures of Antiquity were replaced by their medieval equivalents
  • defines the European context by looking at the external forces which helped to shape it through conflict
  • explores key topics such as the fall of the Roman Empire, the rise of both Christianity and Islam, the Vikings, and the expansion of Latin Christian culture into eastern Europe
  • features maps, genealogies, a chronology and bibliography to aid understanding and further study.

About the Author:

ROGER COLLINS is Honorary Fellow in History at the University of Edinburgh, UK.

From Library Journal:

Busy professors seeking fresh lecture material and graduate students wanting a sound synthesis of early medieval history will find this book useful. It traces the history of Western Europe from the Roman Empire's political and economic difficulties of the 4th century down to the intellectual renaissance associated with the Ottonian kings in the 10th century; emphasis is on the traditional areas of political and religious change; there is very little social history. For so highly detailed a narrative, the book is written with unusual verve, and all parts of the Latin West and Byzantine East receive fair attention. The lengthy historiographical discussions will excite the scholar but bore American undergraduates. For general collections.
