Abstract:

"The period from the fifth century to the eighth century witnessed massive political social and religions change. This book explores the interdependence of geographical and historical modes of expression in four of the most important writers of the period: Orosius Jordanes, Isidore of Seville and the Venerable Bede. It offers important new readings of each by arguing that the long geographical passages with which they were introduced were central to their authors' historical assumptions and arguments."--BOOK JACKET.
