    1. This study shows its date. Fichtenau doesn't analyze the primary sources he uses. He doesn't consider the narrative style of those sources. His religious sensibilities prevent him from being objective in his evaluation of the Carolingian Empire. He claims that the veneration of relics began in the 9th century even though Eastern Christians also were into the practice. He thinks the practice is a violation of true Christianity, but that's just his own opinion. Religious practices should be evalua [...]

    2. This is another of the many great books about the Middle Ages I was referred to by Norman F. Cantor in "the inventing of the middle ages". I doubt I would ever have come across this book without the help of Cantor's guide to the literature. This book is translated from the German in the sixties, but Fictenau is writing about the 800's, so you shouldn't be put off by the age of the book. The copy that I bought is a reprint by the "mediaveal academy for teaching". It has a plain red orange cover a [...]

    3. Comprised of about half a dozen chapters's, Fichtenau's CAROLINGIAN EMPIRE (at least in translation--I do not claim to have knowledge of the original German text, of which this is said to be a partial abridgement) is not so much a single examination of the reign of Carolus Magnus as it is a thesis about it, written in half a dozen varied ways (one to a chapter), each of which examine a facet of Carolingian culture, and thereby provide a great deal of expository information to the reader, while f [...]

    4. Nice overview of the Carolingian era. Most general histories devote but a few pages to this important era of European history. If you're looking for a more in-depth look at Charles the Great and his empire this is a great place to start.

    5. This book contains extensive references to the details of the integration of the church and government offices.

    6. Reading this book, besides the fact that I find the subject terribly boring, was pure torture. Do not read it if you want to keep your sanity.
