The Remarkable Life And Career Of The Breton Ansger, Monk And Poet On The Loire Valley Who Became Bishop Of Catania In Sicily 1091-1124, George Beech Dec 2013

The Remarkable Life And Career Of The Breton Ansger, Monk And Poet On The Loire Valley Who Became Bishop Of Catania In Sicily 1091-1124, George Beech

George T. Beech

A key figure in the establishment of the Latin church in Arabic Sicily after the Norman conquest was Bishop Ansger of Catania 1091-1124. Newly found information shows that, by origin a Breton, he first became a monk at St. Florent of Saumur in the Loire valley, then made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. After his return he entered the monastery of St. Eufemia in Calabria where his rise to the office of prior led Count Roger of Sicily to choose him, with the approval of Pope Urban II, as the first bishop of Catania and abbot of St. Agatha. In a ...

Obscurity In Medieval Texts, Lucie Doležalová, Jeff Rider, Alessandro Zironi Dec 2012

Obscurity In Medieval Texts, Lucie Doležalová, Jeff Rider, Alessandro Zironi

Jeff Rider

Modern readers of medieval texts often find them obscure. Some of this obscurity is accidental and inevitable due to the historical and cultural distance that separates modern readers from medieval authors, but medieval readers and authors also appear to have simply had a higher tolerance for textual obscurity than we do and even to have viewed obscurity as desirable and a virtue. They did not believe that obscurity could ever be eradicated and were not scared of the indescribable, indivisible, and ungraspable; they accepted reality as complex and ultimately unintelligible. Obscurity was not simply a riddle to be solved. It ...

Richard Verstegan's Reinvention Of Anglo-Saxon England: A Contribution From The Continent, Richard Clement Nov 2011

Richard Verstegan's Reinvention Of Anglo-Saxon England: A Contribution From The Continent, Richard Clement

Richard W. Clement

The reinvention of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance is an historicized approach to constructions of the past. How and why does the present of any period uses the past to promote its own opinions, beliefs, doctrines or views? In particular, this volume demonstrates that reinventions of past eras or figures can be motivated by a nationalistic desire to create cultural 'roots', to discover origins that justify a regime or group's self-identity, to appropriate a cultural icon or neglected author for a particular political agenda, or to reflect on contemporary social issues via a remote time and place. Reworkings ...

A Poetics Of History: Karen Cushman's Medieval World, Joseph Zornado Jun 2011

A Poetics Of History: Karen Cushman's Medieval World, Joseph Zornado

Joseph L Zornado

Historical fiction occupies an uncertain space in the field of children's literature. Offer a teacher or scholar a work of historical fiction in any genre, from picture book to novel, and you are sure to get a varied, contentious response about what makes historical fiction work. Why? Because historical fiction has ambitious, ambiguous aims. For instance, should historical fiction be good history, even if this means the story might be, say, a little dull? Or, on the other hand, should the author take liberties with setting, dialogue, and character in order to provide the audience with "a good read ...

Putting "Blood Libel" In Historical Context, Magda Teter Jan 2011

Putting "Blood Libel" In Historical Context, Magda Teter

Magda Teter

When Sarah Palin used the term “blood libel” in response to the shooting in Arizona that left six people dead and severely injured others, including Democratic Representative Gabrielle Giffords, she stirred a controversy. To defend herself in the midst of the controversy, Palin defined the term “blood libel” very broadly as “being falsely accused of having blood on your hands.” Despite her broad definition, blood libel is a term that refers very specifically to the historical accusation that Jews killed Christian children to obtain their blood. A false accusation, to be sure, but one with a long and painful history ...

Social And Cultural Boundaries In Pre-Modern Poland, Magda Teter, Adam Teller, Antony Polonsky Dec 2009

Social And Cultural Boundaries In Pre-Modern Poland, Magda Teter, Adam Teller, Antony Polonsky

Magda Teter

Boundaries—physical, political, social, religious, and cultural—were a key feature of life in medieval and early modern Poland, and this volume focuses on the ways in which these boundaries were respected, crossed, or otherwise negotiated. It throws new light on the contacts between Jews and Poles, including the vexed question of conversion and the tensions it aroused. The collected articles also discuss relations between the various elements of Jewish society—the wealthy and the poor, the educated and the uneducated, and the religious and the lay elites, considering too contacts between Jews in Poland and those in Germany and ...

Le Diocèse De Thérouanne Au Moyen Age, Jeff Rider, Benoît-Michel Tock Dec 2009

Le Diocèse De Thérouanne Au Moyen Age, Jeff Rider, Benoît-Michel Tock

Jeff Rider

De tous les évêchés du Nord de la France médiévale, celui de Thérouanne est sans doute l’un des moins bien connus. Cette situation s’explique en partie par la perte quasi-complète de ses archives lors de la prise et de la destruction de la ville par Charles Quint en 1553, qui entraînèrent par ailleurs quelques années plus tard le démembrement du diocèse entre ceux de Saint-Omer, Ypres et Boulogne. Aucune étude d’ensemble ne lui avait d’ailleurs été consacrée depuis la thèse de l’historien gantois Hans Van Werveke, »Het bisdom Terwaan van den oorsprong tot het begin ...


Galbert Of Bruges And The Historiography Of Medieval Flanders, Jeff Rider, Alan Murray Dec 2008

Galbert Of Bruges And The Historiography Of Medieval Flanders, Jeff Rider, Alan Murray

Jeff Rider

Galbert of Bruges's The Murder, Betrayal and Assassination of the Glorious Charles, Count of Flanders is one of the most widely read books of the Middle Ages. It recounts the assassination of Charles, count of Flanders, and the events leading up to and following the murder. Galbert was a resident of Bruges and had served in the count's administration for at least thirteen years by the time of the assassination in 1127. He was well-acquainted with Charles and many of the other actors in this drama, an eyewitness to many of the events he relates, and exceptionally well ...


The Medieval Writing Workshop, Alex Mueller Dec 2007

The Medieval Writing Workshop, Alex Mueller

Alex Mueller

If we compare elementary and secondary school classrooms today with their grammar school predecessors of the Middle Ages, we might find few similarities. The terrifying image of the medieval schoolmaster, seated in a chair with his birch in hand, ready to strike supplicant schoolboys for incorrect answers, does not match our more recent and comforting portrait of the teacher who circulates throughout the classroom and nurtures students through a student-centered curriculum. Yet, as an educator trained as both a medievalist and a high school English teacher, I am regularly provoked by the affinities I discover in medieval and modern pedagogies ...
