Barbarossa in Italy

Edited & Translated
by Thomas Carson

THIS IS the first English translation of the hexameter poem most recently edited by Irene Schmale-Ott under the title Carmen de gestis Frederici I. imperatoris in Lombardia, telling of the events of Barbarossa’s Italian campaigns in the period 1154-62. It is provided with a useful critical introduction and notes mostly elucidating political and historical aspects of the poem. (Medium Aevum)
