Rewriting Saints and Ancestors
Full Product Description
As they met with political change and social upheaval, each generation decided which events of the past were worth remembering and which were to be reinterpreted or else quietly forgotten. By considering memory as an analytic tool, Bouchard not only reveals the ways early medieval writers constructed a useful past but also provides new insights into the nature of record keeping, the changing ways dynasties were conceptualized, the relationships of the Merovingian and Carolingian kings to the church, and the discovery (or invention) of Gaul's earliest martyrs.
Rewriting Saints and Ancestors by Constance Brittain Bouchard was published by University of Pennsylvania Press in September 2014. The ISBN for Rewriting Saints and Ancestors is 9780812246360.
