Although often depicted as a barbaric and uncivilised society, in the full pejorative meaning of these words, Merovingian Gaul was clearly a Christian society and a direct continuation of the Roman civilisation in terms of social standards, morals and culture.Using insights provided by social history, archaeology, palaeography and anthropology, this book studies the problem of Christianisation in early Medieval Gaul from a cultural point of view. While exploiting a huge range of primary and secondary material, Dr. Hen does not confine himself to a functional analysis of various cultural and religious activities in Merovingian Gaul, but goes on to assess the consequences and implications of such activities for the people themselves, and for the subsequent developments in the Carolingian period.'... is an impressive synthesis of modern scholarship on the religious culture of Merovingian Gaul ... an invaluable resource for early medievalists.'--Paul Fouracre, Ecclesiastical History, 1997.'... il faut souligner la qualit de cet essai.'--Michle Gaillard, Revue Mabillon, 1998.'... such an interesting and useful piece of work...'--William Klingshirn, The Medieval Review, 1999.
