Alcuin

His Life and Legacy

By Douglas Dales

ISBN: 9780227173466

‘This is an attempt to draw a short biography of Alcuin from his first English period (pages 19-68) with the very first diplomatic tasks and the connections with the political authorities, to the collaboration with Charlemagne also through the links with Rome, and an analysis of his heritage, both as clergyman and as a politician (pages 127-60; 151-60 in particulare are about letters and manuscripts); whereas another work (Alcuin. His Theology) is about theological and cultural perspectives. The volume ends with an Historical appraisal, some notes, a bibliography  and an appendix.’

Medioevo Latino, XXXIV, July 2013
