Baghdad, Aachen, and Winchester: Early Medieval Reforms and Reformers

The late eighth and ninth centuries saw cultural and intellectual
revivals and renaissances that seemed to have proceeded from East to
West. All are related in some way to each other, but they are seldom
examined in the same context. Harun al-Rachid, Charlemagne, and
Alfred all sponsored reforms in their respective societies, were in
contact in some way with one another (or in Alfred's case, with
Charlemagne's grandson), and may have influenced one another.<i>The
Heroic Age</i> invites submissions exploring these three rulers, the
cultural revivals that occurred under their reigns, the factors
leading to those revivals, the long term results, and any possible
interplay or influence.

This issue will be <i>The Heroic Age</i>'s eleventh issue and is
planned for January 2007. Submissions will be received at any time,
but no later than Oct. 1, 2006.
For submission guidelines see www.heroicage.org, Submissions should
be sent to Larry Swain, haediting_at_yahoo.com
