Charlemagne and the Early Middle Ages

Charlemagne and the Early Middle Ages

by Miriam Greenblatt

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-This attractive volume doubles as a biography of Charlemagne and an overview of everyday life during his reign. Part one covers the ruler's life and period in power while the second section includes chapters on "The Christian Church," "Education," "A Variety of Crafts," and other topics. Unfortunately, Greenblatt makes several errors in discussing Charlemagne's family. A final section contains poems, oaths, spells, letters, and historical accounts. Quality, full-color reproductions of period art illustrate the text and one inadequate map is included. Sources for quotations are noted. Timothy L. Biel's Charlemagne (Lucent, 1997), for older students, is a thorough and readable study but also contains errors. Fiona Macdonald's The World in the Time of Charlemagne (Dillon, 1998; o.p.) is similar in format to Greenblatt's work but encompasses the entire globe, making it less pertinent for those interested primarily in European activities.-Ann W.
