Alcuin of York, an English scholar and ecclesiastic born around 735, wrote "Virtues and Vices," a handbook of advice for a soldier whose "soul is wearied by the work-a-day world." Richard E. Murphy turned the moral treatise into plain, everyday English, making it accessible to ordinary modern readers for the first time. In "De Virtutibus et Vitiis," Alcuin drew on the ideas of St. Augustine and other early church fathers but kept it short. A leading teacher at the Carolingian court, Alcuin offers timeless guidance in a translation rendered beautifully and still accurately. "Alcuin reminds us that the practice of virtue and the avoidance of vice were virtually the same in the Middle Ages as in our own day," Murphy writes.
Both of these works have been translated into English from the Latin for the first time and made available in this volume. The Latin version of the Questions and Answers Manual is provided in this volume as well.

Alcuin of York (735 - 804), was a famous scholar and theologian, who starting at a young age was educated at the cathedral school at York, where he became a monk and teacher, and served as a deacon. He would become the head of the school and even travelled the continent of Europe to acquire books for the great library which the cathedral school of York was widely known for. He would later become an advisor on religious scholarship and education for Charlemagne, and joined the royal court in 781. The commentary on Revelation by Alcuin draws highly upon Ambrose Autpert and the Questions and Answers Manual draws upon the Venerable Bede. Both of these works have been translated into English from the Latin for the first time and made available in this volume. The Latin version of the Questions and Answers Manual is provided in this volume as well.

Excerpt: Alcuin of York (Latin: ) or Ealhwine, nicknamed Albinus or Flaccus (730s or 740s - 19 May 804) was an English scholar, ecclesiastic, poet and teacher from York, Northumbria. He was born around 735 and became the student of Archbishop Ecgbert at York. At the invitation of Charlemagne, he became a leading scholar and teacher at the Carolingian court, where he remained a figure in the 780s and 790s. He wrote many theological and dogmatic treatises, as well as a few grammatical works and a number of poems. He was made Abbot of Saint Martin's at Tours in 796, where he remained until his death. "The most learned man anywhere to be found" according to Einhard's Life of Charlemagne, he is considered among the most important architects of the Carolingian Renaissance. Among his pupils were many of the dominant intellectuals of the Carolingian era. Alcuin of York had a long career as a teacher and scholar, first at the school at York founded in AD 627 (now known as St Peter's School, York) and later as Charlemagne's leading advisor on ecclesiastical and educational matters. From 796 until his death he was Abbot of the great monastery of St. Martin of Tours. The majority of details on Alcuin's life come from his letters and poems. There are also autobiographical sections in Alcuin's poem on York and in the Vita Alcuini, a Life written for him...

Scholar, ecclesiastic, teacher and poet of the eighth century, Alcuin was a person of deep Christian faith, tenacious in his loyalty to orthodox Catholic theology. He had a seminal influence upon his own generation and those that came after him. Althoughhe remained a Northumbrian Christian at heart, the part of his life about which most is known was spent on the Continent. He never lost contact with his homeland; but his most significant and lasting work was evidently accomplished in Europe and his influence on the early medieval Western Church was an abiding one. This book examines his life and career in England and on the continent; it also considers his legacy as a churchman and a leading political figure. This volume prefigures a forthcoming work onAlcuin's intellectual legacy, 'Alcuin : A Study of his Theology' (due for release, April 2013). This rich study is intended for the general reader as well as for those studying, teaching or researching this period of early medieval history and theology in schools and universities.

Medieval York provides a comprehensive history of what is now considered England's most famous surviving medieval city, covering nearly a thousand years. The volume examines York from its post-Roman revival as a town (c. 600) to the major changes of the 1530s and 1540s, which in many ways brought an end to the Middle Ages in England. York was one of the leading English towns after London, and in status almost always the 'second city'. Much research and publication has been carried out on various aspects of medieval York, but this volume seeks to cover the field in its entirety. David Palliser offers an up-to-date and broad-based account of the city by employing the evidence of written documents, archaeology (especially on the rich results of recent city centre excavations), urban morphology, numismatics, art, architecture, and literature. Special attention is paid to the city's religious drama and its wealth of surviving stained glass. The story of Medieval York is set in a wide context to make comparisons with other English and Continental towns, to establish how far York's story was distinctive or was typical of other English towns which have been less fortunate in the survival of their medieval fabric. It is essential reading for anyone interested in York's past and in its rich heritage of medieval churches, guildhalls, houses, streets, and city walls - the most complete medieval circuit in England.

Accessing Alcuin enables an excellent multi-disciplinary appreciation of the scholar and theologian, Alcuin, through the manuscript collections and scholarship of medieval history and culture, European Church history and theology. Douglas Dales has provided an authoritative bibliography that comprehensively incorporates the research material that enabled him to complete his definitive study of Alcuin. In this two-volume study, Alcuin: His Life and Legacy and Alcuin: Theology and Thought (both available from James Clarke and Co Ltd), the author demonstrated that the eighth-century theologian, teacher, and statesman was a seminal influence on his generation and those after him. This bibliography is a reflection of the immense research undertaken to reveal not only the rich panorama of Christian culture during the reign of Charlemagne, which is well supported by primary texts and secondary scholarship of high quality, but also the warm personality of Alcuin. This culmination of intense study, academic rigour and historical sensitivity will prompt a fresh evaluation and appreciation of the foundations of Christian culture in Europe. Accessing Alcuin is readily accessible as an e-resource for anyone teaching or researching this subject.

The role of the court in early medieval polities has long been recognised as an essential force in the running of the kingdom. The court was not only an organ of central government but a sociological community with its own ideology and culture, and a place where royal power was both displayed and negotiated. The studies within this volume reflect the diversity of modern court studies, considering the court as a social body and considering its educative and ideological activities. The contributors to this volume bring together historical, archaeological, art historical and literary approaches to the topic as they consider aspects of court life in England, Francia, Rome, and Byzantium from the eighth to the tenth centuries. The volume therefore looks at court life in the round, emphasizes and invites connections between early medieval courts, and opens new perspectives for the understanding of early medieval courts.

This volume is an investigation of how Augustine was received in the Carolingian period, and the elements of his thought which had an impact on Carolingian ideas of ‘state’, rulership and ethics. It focuses on Alcuin of York and Hincmar of Rheims, authors and political advisers to Charlemagne and to Charles the Bald, respectively. It examines how they used Augustinian political thought and ethics, as manifested in the De civitate Dei, to give more weight to their advice. A comparative approach sheds light on the differences between Charlemagne’s reign and that of his grandson. It scrutinizes Alcuin’s and Hincmar’s discussions of empire, rulership and the moral conduct of political agents during which both drew on the De civitate Dei, although each came away with a different understanding. By means of a philological–historical approach, the book offers a deeper reading and treats the Latin texts as political discourses defined by content and language.

Scholar, ecclesiastic, teacher and poet of the eighth century, Alcuin can be seen as a true hidden saint of the Church, of the same stature and significance as his predecessor Bede. His love of God and his grasp of Christian theology were rendered original in their creative impact by his gifts as a teacher and poet. In his hands, the very traditional theology that he inherited, and to which he felt bound, took new wings. In that respect, he must rank as one of the most notable and influential of Anglo-Saxon Christians, uniting English and continental Christianity in a unique manner, which left a lasting legacy within the Catholic Church of Western Europe. This book is intended for the general reader as well as for those studying, teaching or researching this period of early medieval history and theology in schools and universities.
