Fletcher, Richard A.  
The Barbarian Conversion. From Paganism to Christianity.

Publisher: Marian Wood / Henry Holt, NY ['First American Edition 1998'].
xiii, 562 p., index, plates, maps. Originally published as Conversion of Europe. "The conversion of the pagan world that began in the obscurity of the Dark Ages was in no way inevitable. England did not embrace Christianity until A.D. 627, and the last European conversion occurred in Lithuania late in the Middle Ages, in 1386. How did it all happen-- and why? In a work of splendid scholarship that often reads like a detective story and owes as much to keen intuition as to a firm mastery of difficult sources, one of Britain's foremost medievalists... in a narrative that is both dramatic and thought-provoking... relates the... very large story... [The conversion was] not only a matter of religious belief. With it came an enormous cultural change: Latin literacy and books, Roman notions of law and property, and the concept of town life, as well as new tastes in food, drink, and dress." Dj; fine.

The focal point was the court of Richard II... Its strong links with the international court culture of Europe were fostered by Richard's exotic and extravagant tastes in food and entertainment, in pageantry and display, in art and architecture. ...This study throws much light on concepts and institutions sometimes taken for granted, such as the idea of 'gentle' behavior and chivalry; the attitude toward women, ...love and marriage; the concepts of many kinds of loyalty.'

Lisle, Arthur Plantagenet, Viscount, 1480?-1542. Byrne, Muriel St. Clare, editor.  
The Lisle Letters. Volume Three. Edited by Muriel St. Clare Byrne.

Publisher: Chicago University Press [1981].
633 p., plates incl. facsimiles. "Muriel St. Clare Byrne transcribed 1,900 letters, weaving them together with her own brilliant commentary to produce a magnificent portrait of family life lived against the background of intrigue, terror, and politics that was the court of Henry VIII. ...The Lisle letters were assembled originally in search of evidence to be used in the trial for treason of Arthur Plantagenet, Lord Lisle. We can... watch for the makings of that situation in each new character introduced and in each new development in the story that culminated in Lord Lisle’s being sent to the Tower of London. But apart from this superb, slow-building drama, the letters bring us an unparalleled glimpse of day-to-day Tudor family concerns. They were written from 1533 to 1540, when Lord Lisle was Deputy of Calais..."

Charles, King of Sicily, Count of Provence, Anjou, and Maine, domineering uncle of the King of France, and protégé of the Pope, was on the point of sailing from Sicily to sack Constantinople, to subject the Eastern Empire to himself and its Church to that of Rome. Had he succeeded he would have become the greatest ruler in Europe since the Roman Empire. But the Vespers marked the beginning of his downfall, and with him fell the possibility of a universal papal monarchy." Paper; small tear in spine; good+. Stock#25153.
