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

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

HauptbeschreibungDas Gebiet der heutigen Republik Österreich bildete bis 1806 einen Bestandteil des Heiligen Römischen Reiches. Ist die Geschichte Österreichs daher eine der Landesgeschichten der seit dem späten Mittelalter immer klarer erkennbaren Territorien des Reiches? Drei wesentliche Faktoren unterscheiden die Entwicklung Österreichs von jener anderer Länder des Reiches. Zum ersten war dieses Gebiet die Hausmacht der habsburgischen Dynastie, die von 1438 bis 1806 mit einer kurzen Ausnahme den Herrscher des Heiligen Römischen Reiches stellte. Zweitens kam es schon vor der habsburgischen
