Cross and scepter : the rise of the Scandinavian kingdoms from the Vikings to the Reformation by Sverre Bagge( )

18 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in English and held by 935 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christianity and European-style monarchy--the cross and the scepter--were introduced to Scandinavia in the tenth century, a development that was to have profound implications for all of Europe. Cross and Scepter is a concise history of the Scandinavian kingdoms from the age of the Vikings to the Reformation, written by Scandinavia's leading medieval historian. Sverre Bagge shows how the rise of the three kingdoms not only changed the face of Scandinavia, but also helped make the territorial state the standard political unit in Western Europe. He describes Scandinavia's momentous conversion to Christianity and the creation of church and monarchy there, and traces how these events transformed Scandinavian law and justice, military and administrative organization, social structure, political culture, and the division of power among the king, aristocracy, and common people. Bagge sheds important new light on the reception of Christianity and European learning in Scandinavia, and on Scandinavian history writing, philosophy, political thought, and courtly culture. He looks at the reception of European impulses and their adaptation to Scandinavian conditions, and examines the relationship of the three kingdoms to each other and the rest of Europe, paying special attention to the inter-Scandinavian unions and their consequences for the concept of government and the division of power. Cross and Scepter provides an essential introduction to Scandinavian medieval history for scholars and general readers alike, offering vital new insights into state formation and cultural change in Europe"--

Feudalism : new landscapes of debate( Book )

20 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in English and French and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This up-to-date discussion takes as its starting point the challenge to the traditional notion of feudalism in the twenty-five years since the publication of Jean-Pierre Poly and Eric Bournazel's work on the 'mutation féodale' and Susan Reynolds's attack on the very idea of a feudal society in the Middle Ages. While these challenges have presented a new picture of Western Europe in the so-called feudal age, one more focused than the traditional model of feudalism was, no new scholarly consensus has yet emerged. The volume has two objectives. Firstly, it discusses the present state of research, bringing together leading representatives of the various interpretations of feudalism. It examines the character of medieval society, including questions of landholding, government, and the relationship between king and aristocray. Secondly, it provides a new geographic perspective on the subject by considering countries little discussed from a feudal perspective. In addition to discussing countries that have been prominent in previous studies of feudalism such as England and France, the book also includes contributions on Germany, Spain, Scandinavia, Hungary, and Romania, thus supplying a truly European perspective and a comparative view of social structure in different regions of Europe"--Publisher's description, back cover

Mennesket i middelalderens Norge : tanker, tro og holdninger 1000-1300 by Sverre Bagge( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hvordan var det å være menneske i middelalderen? Og hvor forskjellig var den tids mennesker fra oss i dag? Da Norge ble en del av den vestlige, katolske kristenhet og fikk en landsomfattende kongemakt, skjedde det også noe på menneskets indre plan: De begynte "å tenke annerledes om mange ting", som Sigrid Undset uttrykte det - seder, skikker og normer forandret seg. Denne boken handler om disse endringene, slik de kommer til uttrykk i forestillinger om religion og meningen med livet, politisk tenkning og handlemåte, troskap og lydighet, og holdninger til kroppen, til kjærligheten og til døden. Boken ble første gang utgitt i 1998. Med litteraturhenvisninger og register

Early Icelanders EQ02( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of 23 documents is about the Early Icelanders and covers the time span from the first Norse settlement in Iceland around 874 A.D. to Iceland's incorporation into the kingdom of Norway in approximately 1262 A.D. The major focus is on the Commonwealth Period from 930 to 1262 A.D. Much of the cultural data gathered for this period comes from the analysis and interpretation of a number of Icelandic sagas written primarily in the thirteenth century. The most comprehensive study of the social, economic, and political changes taking place in Medieval Iceland over a four hundred year period is The dynamics of medieval Iceland by Durrenberger. This study begins with the first Norse settlement in Iceland around 874 A.D. and ends with the incorporation of Iceland into the kingdom of Norway in 1264 A.D. Fourteen of these documents were originally published in: From sagas to society, edited by Gísli Pálsson
