"Fichtenau delivers a fascinating view of tenth-century Europe on the eve of the second millenium. He writes this hoping we, on the eve of the third millenium, will take time also to look at who we are and at our world. . . . This engaging book lucidly carries the reader through an amazing amount of material. Medieval scholars will find it resourceful and challenging; the nonscholar will find it fascinating and enlightening."--A. L. Kolp, "Choice" "Fichtenau offers a magnificent survey of all the main spheres of life: the social order, the rural economy, schooling and religious belief and practice in both the secular and monastic church. His command, especially of the narrative sources, their fine nuances of attitude emotion and underlying norms, is masterly and he employs them here with all the sensitiveness and feel for the subject that have always been the hallmarks of his work."--Karl Leyser, "Francia" "Patrick Geary's translation of Fichtenau belongs to that most admirable of scholary genres, great works of scholarship translated by great scholars. It ranks with Contreni's translation of Riche and the Taylor-Little translation of Chenu. This book will be a delight to scholars and students of all phases of European history."--Edward M. Peters, University of Pennsylvania Heinrich Fichtenau, best known to English audiences for "The Carolingian Empire: The Age of Charlemagne," was president of the Institute for Austrian Historical Research at the University of Vienna from 1962 until his retirement in 1984. He is the author of a dozen books in medieval studies and is the editor of several journals.
