Glaubte man früher aus knappen Nachrichten zu kultischen und sozialen Phänomenen in frühmittelalterlichen Quellen ein germanisches Heidentum rekonstruieren zu können, hielt man später alles für die Wiedergabe klassischer Heidentopoi. Dieses Buch überprüft anhand von Quellen aus Zeit und Umfeld des Bonifatius den Realitätsgehalt derartiger Informationen für die Germania im 8. Jahrhundert und füllt die verwendeten römischen Spezialtermini mit ihren zeitgenössischen Inhalten. Außerdem werden Verbindungen der bei Bonifatius genannten Phänomene mit zeitgenössischen kirchlichen Diskursen aufgezeigt.
This book charts the influence of Christian ideas about social responsibility on the legal, fiscal and operational policies of the Merovingian government, which consistently depended upon the collaboration of kings and elites to succeed, and it shows how a set of stories transformed the political playing field in early medieval Gaul. Contemporary thinkers encouraged this development by writing political arguments in the form of hagiography, more to redefine the rules and resources of elite culture than to promote saints' cults. Jamie Kreiner explores how hagiographers were able to do this effectively, by layering their arguments with different rhetorical and cognitive strategies while keeping the surface narratives entertaining. The result was a subtle and captivating literature that gives us new ways of thinking about how ideas and institutions can change, and how the vibrancy of Merovingian culture inspired subsequent Carolingian developments.

It is 741. After subduing the pagan religions in the east, halting the march of Islam in the west, and conquering the continent for the Merovingian kings, mayor of the palace Charles the Hammer has one final ambition—the throne. Only one thing stands in his way—he is dying. Charles cobbles together a plan to divide the kingdom among his three sons, betroth his daughter to a Lombard prince to secure his southern border, and keep the Church unified behind them through his friend Bishop Boniface. Despite his best efforts, the only thing to reign after Charles’s death is chaos. His daughter has no intention of marrying anyone, let alone a Lombard prince. His two eldest sons question the rights of their younger pagan stepbrother, and the Church demands a steep price for their support. Son battles son, Christianity battles paganism, and Charles’s daughter flees his court for an enemy’s love. Based on a true story, Anvil of God is a whirlwind of love, honor, sacrifice, and betrayal that follows a bereaved family’s relentless quest for power and destiny.
