Summary

  • "Amatus of Montecassino was the earliest historian of the Norman conquests in Italy. His 'History of the Normans', written c. 1080, not only provides a fascinating insight into this neglected area of medieval history, but is also a text of great value for study of the Gregorian Reform and of the abbey of Montecassino, one of the most important cultural and religious centres of eleventh-century Christendom. This book provides a vivid translation of this intriguing contemporary history; while the introduction and extensive annotation locate the 'History' securely in its contemporary context and provide a full discussion of its purpose and themes, and of the various problems of authorship and transmission associated with it."--Jacket.
