The Gesta Tancredi of Ralph of Caen : a history of the Normans on the First Crusade by Raoul( )

24 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in English and held by 1,496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first translation into English of Ralph of Caen's Gesta Tancredi. This text provides an exceptionally important narrative of the First Crusade and its immediate aftermath, covering the period 1096-1105, but is often neglected, due in no small part to the difficulties of its Latin. A native of the Norman city of Caen where he was a student of Arnulf, the future patriarch of Jerusalem, in 1107 Ralph joined Bohemond of Taranto's army as a military chaplain. After arriving in the East, Ralph took service with Bohemond's nephew Tancred, who ruled the principality of Antioch from 1108 to 1112." "Although dedicated to Arnulf, the Gesta Tancredi focuses on the careers of Bohemond and, especially, of Tancred. It is one of the most important sources - indeed the most important Latin source - for the Norman campaigns in Cilicia (1097-1108), and for the early Norman rule of Antioch. The work as a whole has a striking Norman point of view and contains details found in no other source, providing a corrective to the strong northern focus of most of the other narrative sources for the First Crusade."--BOOK JACKET
Early medieval Jewish policy in Western Europe by Bernard S Bachrach( )

24 editions published between 1977 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Early Medieval Jewish Policy in Western Europe was first published in 1977. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. This is the first study of early medieval Jewish policy in the West which examines the nature of this policy from the perspective and aims of its formulators. As the author points out, most specialists in Jewish history have been dominated by what the historian Salo Baron has called the "lachrymose conception, ' a view which emphasized persecution and suffering as a fundamental theme of Jewish history. Professor Bachrach challenges this view and attacks what he calls the myth of Christian church domination of the early medieval world

A history of the Alans in the West; from their first appearance in the sources of classical antiquity through the early Middle Ages by Bernard S Bachrach( Book )

18 editions published between 1973 and 1994 in English and held by 1,087 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A History of the Alans in the West was first published in 1973. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. The Alans, a nomadic people from the steppe lands of south Russia, were among the many invaders of the Roman empire who helped to bring about its fall. Unlike the majority of the invaders, they were not Germans they were Indo-Iraniansand they were not, like most barbarians, organized in agricultural communities. This history traces their westward movement from the time of their first mention in sources of classical antiquity through the early Middle Ages. Professor Bachrach discusses the social and religious institutions of the Alans and especially their military customs. As he shows, they contributed much to the military repertoire of the West, especially the feigned retreat tactic and the role of the cavalry as the primary part of the army. In their westward movement the Alans were assimilated by people in Gaul and Italy and served the empire in a military capacity during the fourth and fifth centuries. IN addition to their military and political impact in several areas, the Alans also influenced early medieval artistic styles, literary developments, place names, and personal names. A number of illustrations provide examples of the artistic influence of the Alans, and there are maps pertinent to the history

Early Carolingian warfare : prelude to empire by Bernard S Bachrach( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Without the complex military machine that his forebears built up over the course of the eighth century, it would have been impossible for Charlemagne to revive the Roman empire in the West. Early Carolingian Warfare is the first book-length study of how this Frankish dynasty, beginning with Pippin II, established its power and cultivated its military expertise in order to reestablish the regnum Francorum, a geographical area of the late Roman period that represents much of present-day France and western Germany. Bernard Bachrach has thoroughly examined contemporary sources, including court chronicles, military handbooks, and late Roman histories and manuals, to establish how the early Carolingians used their legacy of political and military techniques and strategies forged in imperial Rome to regain control in the West."--Jacket

The anatomy of a little war : a diplomatic and military history of the Gundovald affair (568-586) by Bernard S Bachrach( Book )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the late sixth century Gundovald, a Frank of royal blood, returned from a lengthy exile in Italy and Constantinople to establish a regnum in the southwestern part of Gaul. His half brother, Guntram, who ruled the neighboring Burgundian region, vigorously opposed this intrusion. In this fascinating narrative, Bernard Bachrach provides a comprehensive reinterpretation of the dramatic attempt by Gundovald to succeed to the Merovingian throne with the help of the Byzantine Empire. Gundovald, a Merovingian prince, was rejected by his father, King Chlotar I, and declared not to be of royal blood. His association with the Byzantine Empire led Guntram to regard him as an "imperial puppet.""--BOOK JACKET. "In addition to examining the highly controversial diplomatic machinations behind Gundovald's bid for power, Bachrach breaks new ground with a thorough assessment of the strategy, tactics, and military technology of the "little war" fought between Gundovald's supporters and the armies of King Guntram. This conflict ended with the siege of the old Roman fortress city of Convenae in the foothills of the Pyrenees."--BOOK JACKET
The Normans and their adversaries at war( Book )

Jews in barbarian Europe by Bernard S Bachrach( Book )

5 editions published between 1972 and 1977 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contains documents and excerpts from documents of the 4th-9th centuries concerning Jewish-Christian relationships in Europe of the end of the Western Roman Empire and the barbarian kingdoms established in its territory. Pp. 15-43 contain excerpts from law codes, including Roman, Germanic, and canon law. Most of the laws concerning Jews were intended to prevent them from exercising power over Christians, especially over Christian slaves. There were also laws aiming to create unbearable conditions for Jews (and thus to force them to convert "voluntarily") or to humiliate them. The rest of the book relates to papal and royal policies toward Jews, as well as actual Jewish-Christian relationships, which were not always regulated by the laws. Sometimes, however, these relations included conflicts and violence against Jews

The medieval way of war : studies in medieval military history in honor of Bernard S. Bachrach by Gregory I Halfond( )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few historians have argued so persuasively as Bernard S. Bachrach for the study of warfare as demanding of scholarly attention. In his many publications Bachrach has established unequivocally the relevance of military activity for an understanding of medieval European societies, polities, and mentalities. In so doing he has helped to define the status quaestionis for the field of medieval military history. This volume pays tribute to its honoree by gathering seventeen original studies from an international roster of leading experts in the military history of medieval Europe
