Overview

Overview

New research on kings and kingship in the middle ages, in Britain and Europe.
The question of what constitutes good and bad rulership in the central middle ages, in both theory and practice, is the linking theme in this latest volume of the Haskins Society Journal. The nine complementary papers range widely across the Carolingian world, Norman and Angevin England and southern Italy, and the Latin East, exploring contemporary attitudes to rule and rulers (especially kings), and the methods and symbolism of ruling, as well as the reputations of individual kings in modern historiography.

Dr C.P. LEWIS teaches in the Department of History at the University of Liverpool.
