Editorial Reviews

Review

"As with all the best exercises in intellectual archaeology, Gabriele's book raises as many questions as it claims to answer. It is a monograph in the very best sense of the term, showing how a field that some might presume mined to exhaustion can still yield up a rich, albeit highly speculative seam of ore." -- Nicholas Vincent, History

"I really like this book and learned a lot from it... The argument and research are critical, thorough, and sound." -- Thomas F.X. Noble, TMR-L

Matthew Gabriele has made a powerful and convincing attempt to show that the evolution of Charlemagne myths can reveal a Frankish sense of manifest Christian destiny, and that this self-importance may have spurred at least some of them to follow the crusader road to Jerusalem.   -- Times Literary Supplement

About the Author


Matthew Gabriele received his Ph.D. in History from the University of California, Berkeley. He has published widely on topics related to Charlemagne, kingship, and religiosity in the eleventh century. He has also co-edited, with Jace Stuckey, an interdisciplinary volume of essays on the medieval legend of Charlemagne entitled The Legend of Charlemagne in the Middle Ages: Power, Faith, and Crusade. His next project investigates how a shift in language signaled a change in how the West understood the relationship between past, present, and future.
