This volume examines how the notion of law was transformed and reformulated during the Middle Ages. It focuses on encounters between ancient and local legal traditions and the three great revelation religions – Judaism, Christianity, and Islam – each of which understood the written word of God as law and formulated new cultures. The work thus furnishes interdisciplinary and intercultural insight into medieval legal discourse.

"Die Alpenregion im heutigen Graubünden und im Vinschgau ist ein einzigartiges Reliktgebiet spätantiker Kulturtradition, das um 800 im Zuge der Expansion des Karolingerreiches in einen neuen, weiteren Horizont einbezogen wurde. Die fundamentale Frage nach der Kontinuität/Diskontinuität zwischen Antike und Frühmittelalter stellt sich hier in einer sehr spezifischen Weise, zumal im Vergleich mit den angrenzenden Räumen (Alemannien, Oberitalien)." Damit hat Prof. Dr. Rudolf Schieffer, Präsident der Monumenta Germaniae Historica, den Plan begrüsst, in Müstair ein Kolloquium über Wandel und Konstanz in Churrätien durchzuführen. Die Vorträge und Diskussionen dieser Tagung haben in vielen Bereichen zu neuen Forschungsansätzen geführt. Sie liegen in 30 Beiträgen vor, geordnet nach den Sachgebieten: Frühgeschichte und Archäologie – Geschichte und Recht – Schrift und Sprache – Kunst und Kirche; ein kurzer Epilog ist der Gründung des Klosters St. Johann in Müstair gewidmet.

Mit "Quellen: Eine geschichtswissenschaftliche Grundkategorie" betreten wir die Fundamente der Arbeit eines Historikers. Der Sammelband beinhaltet nach einer methodischen Einfhrung und der Vorstellung verschiedener Hilfsmittel quellenbasierte Studien jeweils zur Antike, dem Mittelalter und der Neuzeit: Ioannis Charalambakis untersucht die milit„rischen Leistungen des athenischen Feldherrn Alkibiades im Spiegel der zeitgen”ssischen Quellen, Leila Bargmann widmet sich Kirchenrechtssammlungen aus dem 11. Jahrhundert und Arndt Brendecke zeigt die Probleme des Anwachsens administrativer Schriftlichkeit im Spanien Philipps II. auf. Den Band schlieát ein Ausblick Andreas C. Hofmanns ab, der dem vermeintlichen Gegensatz der Bedeutung Neuer Medien fr die Quellenarbeit und der vom digitalen Zeitalter entfernten Arbeit in Archiven auf den Grund geht.

What did it mean to be a Frankish nobleman in an age of reform? How could Carolingian lay nobles maintain their masculinity and their social position, while adhering to new and stricter moral demands by reformers concerning behaviour in war, sexual conduct and the correct use of power? This book explores the complex interaction between Christian moral ideals and social realities, and between religious reformers and the lay political elite they addressed. It uses the numerous texts addressed to a lay audience (including lay mirrors, secular poetry, political polemic, historical writings and legislation) to examine how biblical and patristic moral ideas were reshaped to become compatible with the realities of noble life in the Carolingian empire. This innovative analysis of Carolingian moral norms demonstrates how gender interacted with political and religious thought to create a distinctive Frankish elite culture, presenting a new picture of early medieval masculinity.

The Oxford Handbook of Medieval Christianity takes as its subject the beliefs, practices, and institutions of the Christian Church between 400 and 1500AD. It addresses topics ranging from early medieval monasticism to late medieval mysticism, from the material wealth of the Church to the spiritual exercises through which certain believers might attempt to improve their souls. Each chapter tells a story, but seeks also to ask how and why 'Christianity' took particular forms at particular moments in history, paying attention to both the spiritual and otherwordly aspects of religion, and the material and political contexts in which they were often embedded. This Handbook is a landmark academic collection that presents cutting-edge interpretive perspectives on medieval religion for a wide academic audience, drawing together thirty key scholars in the field from the United States, the UK, and Europe. Notably, the Handbook is arranged thematically, and focusses on an analytical, rather than narrative, approach, seeking to demonstrate the variety, change, and complexity of religion throughout this long period, and the numerous different ways in which modern scholarship can approach it. While providing a very wide-ranging view of the subject, it also offers an important agenda for further study in the field.

The canonical collections took their starting point from the ‘sacred law’ (ius sacrum) characteristic of canon law, since its norms promote the sanctification of the individual persons. This principle was the basis for the compilation of the so-called Pre-Gratian canon law collections, too. In the recent research, there have arisen new stresses on the better understanding of how this textual development of canonical collections had happened prior the Decretum Gratiani. An original canonical textual witness testifies about the circumstances of its origin, and, indeed, about the physical effects on the text during daily usage. The endeavor to issue the complete canon law did not mean only the composition of the universal canonical norms, but also the gathering of the particular norms, inveterate customs, or theological statements that could set the contents of the ecclesiastical discipline in the proper light.

The essays in this volume address issues relating to the compilation and transmission of canon law collections, the role of bishops in their dissemination, and the interpretation and use of law in the eleventh and twelfth centuries. These reflect important areas of contention in the historiographical literature and will further the debates regarding the development of the practical application of canon law within Europe, especially after c.1080.

Superstitio in der Kanonistik des 12. und 13. Jahrhunderts

Magische und ›abergläubische‹ Vorstellungen und Praktiken der Menschen im Mittelalter haben immer wieder die Aufmerksamkeit verschiedener Disziplinen auf sich gezogen. Der kirchenrechtliche Diskurs über superstitio wurde bislang jedoch nur unzureichend aufgearbeitet. Die vorliegende Publikation schliesst diese Lücke, indem sie Texte der klassischen Kanonistik vom Decretum Gratiani (um 1140) bis zum Liber Extra (1234) ins Zentrum einer detailreichen Analyse rückt. Neben gedruckten werden insbesondere ungedruckte Quellen in ihren Entstehungskontext gestellt und thematisch ausgewertet. Schwerpunkte bilden dabei Dämonenvorstellungen, die Wahrsagepraktik des Losens, der Glaube an Amulette sowie die Anwendung von ›Schadenzauber‹ in geschlechtlichen Beziehungen. So wird deutlich, wie zunehmend römischrechtliche Konzepte in die von Augustinus († 430) geprägte Superstitionenkritik der Kirche eingeflossen sind. Damit öffnet sich der Blick auf die Verflechtung von Religion und Recht in der Kultur des lateinischen Mittelalters. (Quelle: Homepage des Verlags).

This volume contains papers presented at the conference on "Law and Learning in the Middle Ages" held at the Carlsberg Academy in Copenhagen during May 2005. In this book, a group of European and American scholars examine the theological and legal schooling that the 'creators' of the laws received at the major centers of learning in Europe. These scholars address a number of important questions concerning the creation and development of legal professions and the dynamics between legal practice and theoretical, learned approaches to jurisprudence.

For seven years, a collaboration between the Institute for Medieval Studies of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the Universities of Utrecht, Cambridge, Leeds and Paris I, Sorbonne provided the opportunity for young researchers to discuss and coordinate their work. The title of the project and of this volume, "Texts and identities," provides the framework for case studies in different fields of early medieval history. They include apparently disparate topics such as historiography and hagiography, monastic spaces and memories, lay and ecclesiastic legislation, as well as liturgy and penance. Rather than defining a common field of research, the meetings from which these papers have emerged derived their coherence from their common methodological framework. This approach combines two elements: on the one hand, emphasis has been laid on the careful analysis of the transmission of texts and of the manuscript evidence; on the other, research has focused on the problem of identity, or rather, of processes of identification, including the perception of differences between specific social, political and religious communities. In the combination of these two approaches the extant texts from the early medieval period are not only seen as mere reflections of ethnic, social and cultural identities, but also as media that gave meaning to social practices and were often intended to inspire, guide, change or prevent action, directly or indirectly. The written texts that have been transmitted to us can be seen as part of a cultural effort to shape the present by means of restructuring the past. The often discordant voices of medieval authors allow modern historians to grasp something of the multiplicity of the early medieval world, and of the disagreements, conflicts, idiosyncrasies and individual perceptions among the people who lived in that period. Many contributions in this volume propose specific methods for studying changing identities. They analyse differences between similar texts over time, or, specifically, changes in texts in the course of their transmission. The papers collected in this volume illustrate that texts were integral parts of a world in transformation.
