Abstract

‘Transformation of the Carolingian World’ is an international project that focuses on the cultural, political, economic, social, and religious changes in the period c. 900-1050. Modern narratives often define this ‘long 10th century’ by what it was not: it is either presented as the time when the 9th-century cultural achievements, social structures, and political geography of the Carolingians disintegrated, or as the first stage in the birth of European nations. Building on a wide range of sources, ranging from conciliar texts to historical narratives and poems, these papers suggest alternative perspectives of this exciting epoch of transition.
