This penetrating study presents a vivid portrait of life and society in the age of Charlemagne.  It traces the Carolingian Age from the chaos which followed the breakdown of Roman government and tribal customs to the eventual establishment of the two great pillars of the medieval state, the church and feudalism.

Utilizing a wealth of prime source material, including more than 100 illustrations of Carolingian art, Professor Munz has created a detailed and realistic description of how the people of the Carolingian empire lived, felt, and thought.
