The Roman Empire and its Germanic peoples by Herwig Wolfram( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The names of early Germanic warrior-tribes and leaders resound in songs and legends, and the real story of the part they played in transforming the ancient world is no less gripping. Herwig Wolfram's panoramic history spans the great migrations of the Germanic peoples and the rise and fall of their kingdoms between the third and eighth centuries, as they invaded, settled in, and ultimately transformed the Roman Empire. Wolfram's narrative is far from the "decline and fall" interpretation that held sway until recent decades. He describes the transition from antiquity to the Middle Ages as a generally unsettled, frequently violent time of decentralization, depopulation, and shifts of power. Byzantium became the only center of the old Roman Empire while the western empire ceased to exist as such. Only the increasing authority of the papacy in the Christian-Catholic world helped Rome survive as an imperial capital for the medieval Frankish kingdom and the Holy Roman Empire. This story, based on Wolfram's sweeping grasp of documentary and archaeological evidence, brings new clarity to a poorly understood period of Western history

Conrad II, 990-1039 : emperor of three kingdoms by Herwig Wolfram( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in German and English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this biography of the German emperor Conrad II (990-1039), internationally renowned medievalist Herwig Wolfram paints a portrait of a consummate politician set against the background of a Europe entering a new millennium. Conrad was the founder of the Salian Dynasty, under whose almost century-long dominion Germany became the most powerful state in Western Europe. He was also the first emperor of the High Middle Ages to rule the three kingdoms of Germany, Italy, and Burgundy." "Conrad's reign marked the triumph of the concept of "kingdom" and the zenith of what has been termed "imperial grandeur." He broadened the internal bases of imperial power and brought the full weight of his office to bear upon popes, clerics, and abbots in the pursuit of his ecclesiastical policies. His astounding ability to achieve his political goals was practically unparalleled among the emperors of the High Middle Ages." "Wolfram sees Conrad as a politician in almost the modern sense of the word, capable of exploiting the political, social, and economic structures of his day in order to exert his authority and marginalize his opponents. The result is an intimate portrait filled with fresh insights about Conrad and his consort, Gisela, who - as Wolfram demonstrates - played an influential advisory role with her husband. First published in 2000, this work demonstrates Wolfram's command of the sources and the storyteller's craft, making Conrad II a compelling history of an emperor and his magnificent epoch."--BOOK JACKET
