The Holy Roman Empire Reviews
Although not Holy nor Roman and probably not an empire per se, this is a grand account of a magnificent European institution. I first read it for my undergraduate history course and I remain impressed on a second reading a little back.
This book might seem to be tortuous to read but it is a meaning ful stuuf for those who have the leisure for reading. I like this book as it gives much information which I have never encountered. I have never known anything about the history of medieval age and The Holy Roman Empire.The competition among various royal families and the promiscuous relationship between the members of those royal families had led to the situation of war like situation on the Historical stage that affected the whole course of developement of humanity both in morality and ethincs. This is quite true we also could see the weakness of personality among these peole who were under the fettered situation of politics and marriage.It seems people were grouped under a certain predicate ordained by the consciousness of God who had ordained everything in the flow of History which is to shape the characteristics of Humanity. From the information of this exponential history book, we can trace some roles of lineages of our ancestral dominating characteristics which have shaoed our behaviourism of the socieies nowadays.Without reading this book, I would have never been inspired by an idea that humanist activities are in a web. The web is the webbing which has made up the varius routines to run a society and also the routine lives of humanity. The hidden hand has its wizard to manipulate over the whole humanity's fate to reach the future.History course has its water drops pervading among thevery dep corner of the whole human race that is by spreading the idea of great thought through the medium of humane contact and wars. By means of Politics, people are grouped into various casts and they perform their daily tasks. tasking is thus, in revers, contrals over the fate of whole hu,am race within its sphere of survival. Survival means everything and everything means survival. The phrase is important for whole human race to have known that politics has the power to control the life of Humanity and its importance is revealled as our daily routine taskings.
A very thorough and in depth study of the Holy Roman Empire. It can be somewhat difficult to follow the authors train of thought at times as he will jump around in the timeline, sometimes seemingly at random. He also will use the names of various European monarchs without specifying which one he is talking about, which can lead to confusion as the monarchs of the times tended to share names.
Along with Viscount James Bryce's work, this is essential reading for anyone deeply interested in the history of Medieval Germany and Central Europe.
Good overview on a complex and ever evolving institution.
