Anglo-Norman Studies 30: Proceedings of the Battle by C. P. Lewis

By C. P. Lewis

The 2007 convention on Anglo-Norman reports, the 30th within the annual sequence, used to be held in Wales, and there's a Welsh flavour to the court cases now released. 5 of the 13 papers disguise Welsh subject matters within the lengthy 12th century: Church reform, political tradition, the meant resurgence of Powys as a political entity, and interpreter households within the Marches, in addition to a extensive and compelling historiographical survey of where of the Normans in Welsh heritage. Twelfth-century England is represented through papers on chivalry and kingship (in literature and life), the Evesham surveys, lay charters, and Henry of Blois and the humanities. Essays which concentrate on the southern Italian urban of Trani and at the crusader heritage of Ralph of Caen discover wider Norman identities. eventually, there are large surveys contextualizing the Anglo-Norman adventure: at the careers of the clergy and on how warriors have been pointed out earlier than heraldry. members: HUW PRYCE, LAURA ASHE, JULIA BARROW, HOWARD B. CLARKE, JOHN REUBEN DAVIES, JUDITH EVERARD, NATASHA HODGSON, CHARLES INSLEY, ROBERT JONES, PAUL OLDFIELD, DAVID STEPHENSON, FREDERICK SUPPE, JEFFREY WEST.
