A World of Empires. Claiming and Assigning Imperial Authority in the High and Late Middle Ages
Chris Jones (Canterbury), Klaus Oschema (Ruhr University Bochum) and Christoph Mauntel (University of Tübingen) published the co-edited collection A World of Empires. Claiming and Assigning Imperial Authority in the High and Late Middle Ages as a special issue of The Medieval History Journal (20:2 ). The volume is a collection of seven articles that explore the use of the Latin terms ‘empire’ and ‘emperor’ and their vernacular equivalents in the later medieval centuries. A product, in part, of sessions held at the Leeds International Medieval Congress in 2014, the volume features the work of scholars based in New Zealand, Germany, France and the Netherlands.
