Issue 120, Carolingians

5.99

Welcome to our inaugural issue of 2019! We’re kicking off the New Year with the Carolingians. In this issue, we’ll explore at the the role of Charlemagne as a ruler and his influence on the Carolingian Renaissance. We also focus on important figures of this movement, such as Alcuin of York (735–804), who played an integral role is establishing the Palace school, standardising writing with his advent of Carolingian minuscule, and by writing numerous texts and treatises. We also look at the Carolingian legacy in music with Gregorian chant, the diet of a king, the Palatine Chapel (Charlemagne’s “second Rome”), and representations of Charlemagne in literature. We hope you enjoy this Early Medieval adventure!
