Overview

The twelfth-century renaissance, though usually seen as a French phenomenon, produced fundamental changes in the culture and politics of the wider Anglo-Norman world. The essays in this volume, by leadingscholars in this field meeting at La Bretesche, Brittany, in 1995, explore the impact of this change. Covering a variety of topics, including the transmission of Norman saints' cults, vernacular history and aristocratic values, and shifting modes of death and dying, they have in common the elements of change and transformation occurring throughout society during the course of the Anglo-Norman era.

The late Professor C. WARREN HOLLISTER taught at the University of California at Santa Barbara.
