Pub. Date: 11/28/2005
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
The Liber Manualis is a guidebook to conduct and survival in tumultuous times written by a Carolingian mother for her adolescent son. This edition provides the only complete translation in English, accompanied by the Latin original. The introduction places her handbook within the context of French and Germanic literary traditions, while explanatory references illuminate the life and work of a remarkable ninth-century woman, and place the text squarely within its contemporary social, feminist and religious contexts.
