Editorial Reviews


"...this is a book that ought to interest a very wide range of students of medieval history. A wide range of activity is discussed and a very broad variety of source material used. This careful collection of material shows just how important Germans, and especially the men of Cologne, were during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries in the economic, social, and political life of England. There is much fascinating material, but above all the analysis provides a much sharper perspective on the whole gamut of Anglo-German relations." American Historical Review

"...this commendable effort is clearly focused and meticulously researched, its arguments sound." James D. Mixson, Journal of Interdisciplinary History

Book Description

This book explores the full range of social, economic, religious and cultural contacts between England and the German city of Cologne during the central middle ages, c. 1000 to c. 1300. A wealth of original archive material reveals an extensive network of English and German emigrants who were surprisingly successful in achieving assimilation into their new homeland. From pilgrims to emigrants, crusaders and merchants to teachers, there existed a complex world of Anglo-German associations which will suggest a reconfiguration of the medieval European world.
