Vor 1500 Jahren starb der Merowingerkonig Chlodwig, der Begrunder des Frankenreichs. Von den Nachfolgereichen des spatantiken Imperium uberdauerte es als einziges die Zeiten. "Miracle historique"? Folge einer frankischen Eroberung des romischen Gallien, eines Schlachtensieges Chlodwigs, eines politischen Machtwechsels oder einer frankischen Landnahme bauerlicher Siedler? Wie gingen die Franken mit den spatantiken Einrichtungen und der uberlieferten materiellen Zivilisation um? Wie entstand in einem polyethnischen Grossreich ein neues frankisches Selbstverstandnis? Wie wurden die Vorstellungen des spatromischen Senatorenadels oder des romanischen Episkopats in eine spezifisch merowingische Kultur integriert? Zeitgenossische Quellen mit deutschen Ubersetzungen, eine historische Einfuhrung und ein Forschungsbericht, der auch die historischen Nachbarwissenschaften Archaologie und Sprachwissenschaft berucksichtigt, sowie ein umfangreiches Literaturverzeichnis geben einen Einblick in den Wandel des Frankenbildes im Laufe der Zeiten. Schliesslich ergibt sich die Frage der Periodisierung: Wann endet die Antike und wann beginnt das Mittelalter?

It is 741. After subduing the pagan religions in the east, halting the march of Islam in the west, and conquering the continent for the Merovingian kings, mayor of the palace Charles the Hammer has one final ambition—the throne. Only one thing stands in his way—he is dying. Charles cobbles together a plan to divide the kingdom among his three sons, betroth his daughter to a Lombard prince to secure his southern border, and keep the Church unified behind them through his friend Bishop Boniface. Despite his best efforts, the only thing to reign after Charles’s death is chaos. His daughter has no intention of marrying anyone, let alone a Lombard prince. His two eldest sons question the rights of their younger pagan stepbrother, and the Church demands a steep price for their support. Son battles son, Christianity battles paganism, and Charles’s daughter flees his court for an enemy’s love. Based on a true story, Anvil of God is a whirlwind of love, honor, sacrifice, and betrayal that follows a bereaved family’s relentless quest for power and destiny.

The End of Antiquity saw an increase in the divide between East and West. This crucial development in the history of the Late and Post-Roman World was addressed in a series of linked papers delivered at the first plenary conference of the European Science Foundation's scientific programme on the Transformation of the Roman World, held in 1995. A group of leading scholars addressed questions of social, cultural, artistic and linguistic change, concentrating largely on developments within the East, while changes in the West were explored in a series of responses.
