    One thought on “The Holy Roman Empire”

    1. Given the general lack of historical writing on the subject, particularly in English, this is a pretty helpful read for anyone wanting to learn about the HRE. It's also one of the few books I've found that treats the empire from origin to fall (pre-800 to 1806), as most focus on only a narrower time period, person or national/geographic area - understandable given the ambitious scope and complexity of writing a narrative of the HRE.Bryce's book is less a survey of the historical period during wh [...]

    2. I read the free Project Gutenberg edition.An interesting (to me, as a bit of a history nerd) discussion of the titular subject. Most valuable for its explanation of the ideas, philosophy, sentiments, etc. behind the Holy Roman Empire and its discussion of how it mutated from its original form under Charlemagne into the German formality it became.

    3. As a kid --and I am talking high school age-- I always liked historical factoids: names, places, and dates. Neat stuff.History is, of course, more than recording, it is interpreting. Our age, hopefully, will be remembered for its barbarity, just like the Middle Ages. This guy Bryce, however, is a TRUE diplomat in his analysis of the history, the usefulness, and the ludicrousness of the H.R.E.:They sinned grievously, no doubt, but they sinned in the dim twilight of a half-barbarous age, not in th [...]

    4. Insightful nuanced overview of the ideology of 1,800 years of the Holy Roman Empire. A chronological history of the concepts within the ideology of the Holy Roman Empire. It's duality of a universal church and a universal ruling system that nurtures and give birth to its eventual evolution to today.
