This is a collection of original essays on the relationship between property and power, a fundamental theme in medieval history. It addresses four main issues: the meaning of power over property; the ways in which property conveyed power; the nature of immunities; and the power of royal authority to affect property relations. The areas studied include Wales, England, France, Germany, Italy, and Byzantium, and the essays range across the period 650-1150. A substantial introduction is included, which explains the nature of the issues, and a conclusion expresses the team's overall view of the subject. Aimed at a wide readership of both scholars and students, the volume also includes a glossary to help readers who may be unfamiliar with the material or the period.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... an extremely well-edited and tightly-knit volume, which maintains a very high level of discussion, and it is going to be essential reading for anyone interested in the early medieval Church in its social and political context'. Edward James, Journal of Ecclesiastical History
"...the authors have certainly provided a series of good examples about how one may read and interpret the characters from the time." COnstance B. Bouchard, Journal of Economic History
"This welcome book may be likened to one of those admirable chamber ensembles that perfom music without conductor." Thomas N. Bisson, Speculum
"This collection of essays on a single theme by Britain's leading early medievalists is a rich and ambitious book. Like the rich, it exudes quality, elegance, and confidence, and like the ambitious, it applies considerable energy to hug tasks." Richard Gerberding, The American Journal of Legal History
