Recensies en Artikelen

"Huffman's book is well researched and written in an appealing manner and - especially for an English-speaking audience - offers a good introduction to Cologne's city history."
- Markus Jansen, Rheinische Geschichte, January 2020. Originally published in German.

"Huffman has written a thorough, judicious, and excellent account of Cologne’s first millennium. Readers interested in the urban history of the post-Roman West will find this book particularly valuable, but it also has much to offer to those interested in early medieval Germany, as Huffman spends a great deal of time describing how Cologne fit into the context of Ottonian and Salian politics."
- Thomas Farmer, Mediaevistik 32, 2019

The Imperial City of Cologne

From Roman Colony to Medieval Metropolis (19 B.C.-1125 A.D.)

De onderstaande tekst is niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands en wordt in het Engels weergegeven.
The Imperial City of Cologne: From Roman Colony to Medieval Metropolis (19 B.C.-1125 A.D.) is an urban history of Cologne from its imperial Roman origins as a northeastern frontier military outpost to a medieval metropolis on the German Empire’s northwestern border. This first history of Cologne, available in English, challenges received notions of late Roman ethnic identities, a Dark Age collapse of urban life, devastating Viking and Magyar incursions, and the origins of medieval urban government.
