Manchester, United Kingdom: Manchester University Press, 1999. 267pp looks unused : Power,Restraint and Privileges of Immunity in Early Medieval Europe. Medieval kings and bishops declared certain properties immune from their own power. Historians have long believed they were compelled by weakness, but Barbara H. Rosenwein argues that these immunities were actually a show of strength: the kings and clerics of Merovingian and Carolingian times were reaffirming their status and exercising their authority. She challenges the age-old notion of the feudal model itself and proposes a new understanding of the political and social exchanges of the period. By showing how immunities developed from late Antiquity to the end of the eleventh century, Rosenwein exposes them as instruments used by kings and bishops to forge alliances with the noble families and monastic centres which were the essence of their authority. She dramatically enriches our understanding of the early medieval world, but also finds for us the legacies of immunities relevant to the modern world, for example 'a man;s home is his castle' and the fact that modern concepts of liberty grew from our imperfect view of the feudal model. This book questions previous readings of the early Middle Ages, and provides an in-depth analysis of how power was developed and shared during this vital period of European history.. Paperback. Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
