Religion and power in the Frankish Kingdoms: studies in honour of Mayke de Jong

This book, written in honour of Mayke De Jong, offers twenty-five essays focused upon the importance of religion to Frankish politics. It deals with religious discourse and political polemic in studies that take up the themes of identity, and the creative deployment of the language of the Old Testament within Frankish society. The book explores how the use of ethnic rhetoric in a Christian context shaped medieval perceptions of community. It shows that the Carolingian way of dealing with the Adoptionist challenge was to allow a conversation between the Spanish bishops and their Frankish opponents to take place. Charlemagne's role in the Vita Alcuini as a guardian of orthodoxy who sought to settle a controversy by organising and supervising a theological debate was striking. The book also discusses the admonition of an abbot of Frankish origin who came from southern France and made his monastic career in southern Italy. It showcases three letter manuscripts that share certain features but are different in other aspects. The first manuscript is a collection of the Moral Letters from Seneca to his pupil Lucilius , Paris , BnF, lat. 8658A. The book demonstrates that the lists of amici, viventes et defuncti reflected how the royal monastery was interacting with ruling elites, at different levels, and how such interactions were an essential part of its identity. It also examines the context of Monte Cassino's fading into the background, in the conviction that both political and religious concerns were at play.

Regino of Prüm and royal monastic conversion

16 A mirror of princes who opted out: Regino of Prüm and royal monastic conversion Erik Goosmann and Rob Meens Introduction In 908, the year in which the Carolingian Prince Louis (the Child) turned fifteen, Regino, abbot of St Martin of Trier, completed a momentous historical treatise.1 Considered to have been the last major Carolingian historical work, it chronicles the ‘rise and fall of the Carolingians’, for which reason Regino has recently been dubbed ‘the Edward Gibbon of Carolingian historical writing’.2 Rosamond McKitterick has called attention to Regino

: Einhard, for one, dedicated the first part of his biography of Charlemagne to his conquests; 7 and Regino of Prüm praised King Carloman, Charlemagne’s great-grandson, with these words: ‘Indeed, he led many wars together with his father [King Louis the German], and more still without his father into the kingdoms of the Slavs – and he always returned with the triumph of victory.’ 8 Much the same could be said of Iberian rulers, with their constant campaigning, whether from north or south of the peninsula. 9 The northern chronicles are laconic but indicate campaigns

produce two sons, Louis III and Carloman, and a daughter, Gisela. At some point during the 870s, Louis divorced Ansgard and married a woman named Adelaide. 11 Louis’s divorce was not mentioned in the Annales Bertiniani and Hincmar’s role is difficult to discern. 12 Regino of Prüm places the responsibility for the divorce squarely on the shoulders of Charles the Bald, saying that Charles – because he had not given his consent to the marriage – forced Louis to divorce Ansgard and forbade Louis to consort with her any more. 13 Among the Franks

men had riven the mighty empire of Alexander, once he himself had died, and had brought the downfall of the Roman state until Augustus finally reharnessed the nobility firmly to the public interest. 104 Regino of Prüm’s famous entry s.a. 888 is intelligible only in light of his use of Justin. Writing of the troubles that followed Charles the Fat’s death, Regino said that wars had been aroused, not because there were lacking principes of the Franks who could have ruled the regna in nobility, fortitude and wisdom, but because the equality between them of
