This volume in honour of Mayke De Jong offers twenty-five essays focused upon the importance of religion to Frankish politics, a discourse to which De Jong herself has contributed greatly in her academic career. The prominent and internationally renowned contributors offer fresh perspectives on various themes such as the nature of royal authority, the definition of polity, unity and dissent, ideas of correction and discipline, the power of rhetoric and the rhetoric of power, and the diverse ways in which power was institutionalised and employed by lay and ecclesiastical authorities. As such, this volume offers a uniquely comprehensive and valuable contribution to the field of medieval history, in particular the study of the Frankish world in the eighth and ninth centuries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The authors who have contributed to this volume must be particularly praised for the clarity and lucidity with which they present some often very obscure and esoteric topics. A tome of nearly six hundred pages can appear a daunting prospect, but the contributors make reading it nothing less than an intellectually stimulating pleasure that I hope many more scholars will experience.' Richard Broom, University of Leeds, Early Medieval Europe 2018 'The editors and contributors to this volume should be applauded for gathering such a timely collection of essays to honor Mayke de Jong's important contributions to the field. Readers interested in familiarizing themselves with some of the current questions and approaches in this period's religious and political history should find their way to this Festschrift.?' The Medieval Review 'Diverse and exceptionally coherent.' Rezensionen im Deutschen Archiv 75-2 (2019) -- .
