Item description for The Frankish Church (Oxford History of the Christian Church) by J. M. Wallace-Hadrill...

This survey of the development of the Frankish Church under the Merovingian and Carolingian kings (approximately AD 500 - 900) is the first of its kind to appear in English. It is not a story of unimpeded advance towards the Church of medieval France but rather of painful adaptation. It takes account of unsolved problems: the reaction of the Church to heresy, to Judaism, to the Frankish ethos of marriage, and to the conversion of peoples outside Francia itself. Special attention is paid to the intellectual interests of churchmen and to the role of the vernacular in transmitting the Christian message to clergy and laity whose Latin was negligible or nil.
Much turned on the authority of a succession of rulers who combined deep piety with material needs that were inimical to the Church's position as a great landowner. The advance of the Church was thus hesitant and often baulked. What emerges is the Churchmen's increasing resolve to unite against the pressures of lay domination, and to press forward with their basic duties as converters and teachers.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Frankish Church (Oxford History of the Christian Church)?

History at its Best  Jan 26, 2002
J.M. Wallace-Hadrill's "The Frankish Church" is history at its best. Although I have hundreds of works to read to prepare for my qualifying examinations in medieval history, I would not resist lingering over this book due its depth and richness. Prof. Wallace-Hadrill, a pre-eminent name in late antique studies, has produced both a professional historian's dream of insight and sources, but also a panoramic view of the intellectual world of what is called the 'Carolingian Renaissance'. Imbedded in this book are insightful studies of the dominant minds of the late 8th and 9th century - Alcuin, Walafrid Strabo, Paul the Deacon, Einhard, Hrabanus Maurus, Lupus of Ferrieres, Gottschalk, the two Hincmars, and John Scotus Eriugena. This both a detailed survey of an important period and also a review of the important ideas and achievements of that period. [....] James C. Crinean
