Encyclopedia of Barbarian Europe: Society in Transformation
By Michael Frassetto
In the Encyclopedia of Barbarian Europe, medieval expert Michael Frassetto amasses the evidence for the defense―and prosecution―of this little-understood transition era in the history of Western civilization. Covering nearly 1,000 years of history―from the late ancient period through the first centuries of the Middle Ages―this concise but thorough reference work examines the key figures, places, events, and ideas of barbarian Europe.
This title chronicles the ancient Visigoths, the rule of Benedict, and the sacking of Rome. The easy-to-access alphabetical entries and essays offer more than a mere chronicling of kings and battles and explore the social and cultural history of the era, with special attention played to the role of women.
