Description

The “Carolingian World” is a phrase invoked by scholars to delimit a place or a concept enmeshed in the political, religious, and cultural plans of the Carolingian elites that did not map onto any specific borders or boundaries so much as it reflected the reach and ambitions of its rulers and thinkers who imagined their unique place in history and the world. The extent to which those living under Carolingian rule and influence experienced a “Carolingian World” is less clear. The papers in these sessions will address a question crucial to understanding how the first medieval European empire was experienced by the majority of people living under its rule: what did it mean to live in a “Carolingian World”?
