Henry I and the Anglo-Norman World: Studies in Memory of C. Warren Hollister
Donald F. Fleming, Janet M. Pope
Boydell Press, 2007 - History - 216 pages
It is a testament to C. Warren Hollister's ongoing influence that the reign of Henry I, until his work on the period relatively neglected, is now a vibrant field of inquiry - to which this collection, a special volume of the Haskins Society Journal dedicated to his memory, makes a significant contribution. Its distinguished contributors, many former Hollister students, cover a wide range of areas: royal biography; political history, including Church-State relations and relations with neighbors such as Maine and Ireland as well as the English people Henry ruled; administrative history, including fiscal management; and prosopography, especially of the major developments in the Anglo-Norman aristocracy under Henry's reign. This volume thus continues and extends Hollister's scholarly legacy.BR> Contributors: ROBERT S. BABCOCK, RICHARD E. BARTON, STEPHANIE MOOERS CHRISTELOW, DAVID CROUCH, RAGENA C. DE ARAGON, LOIS L.

What people are saying - Write a review
It's rather difficult to review a book with so many authors, but the quality of the individual essays is very high and cover a broad range of topics for the Norman and early Angevin periods. It is a book for informed readers and scholars.
A wealth of information about the era in the history of England and Normandy that was the life's interest of Warren Hollister and a fitting tribute to his memory.
