A highly readable narrative recounts the most relevant features of the age of Charlemagne -- the consolidation of the Carolingian empire, the conversion of heathen peoples to Christianity, and the social conditions of the age. The institutions by which Charlemagne ruled his motley empire are incisively described. Nineteen colorful and unusual documents of the eighth century accompany the text, many translated into English for the first time.
