1. The ‘Middle’ Ages? The ‘Middle’ Ages: what’s in a name? Like many European concepts the Middle Ages is one which eventually reached all parts of the world, shaping how people think about Europe and its people. The ‘Middle Ages’ is in reality an awkward term with which to explore the centuries between 500 and 1500. It suggests that this was a time of arrested motion, a time between two other important epochs that define its middle-ness. Medievalism ancien régime —traditional monarchy and established church—as enduring forms of European life, to be cherished—in England or Prussia—or restored, in France. Rome

Introduction what was the Holy Roman Empire? What kind of polity? ‘Neither holy, nor Roman, nor an empire’—Voltaire’s sardonic characterization of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, recorded in his essay on the customs and spirit of nations published in 1756, has seemed to many to be a just description of a much misunderstood entity. The empire was dissolved in 1806 and by common consent it was founded in 800. Yet Charlemagne’s coronation as emperor by the pope in 800 did not launch a fully fledged entity. When the German kings assumed the imperial title in 962, the

2. The French Revolutionary Wars, 1792–1802 France blithely declared war against Austria in April 1792 because internal forces—the King, the Fayettists, and the Girondins—believed it was the way to political power. While individually they were working in very different directions, collectively they were united in one crucial sense: their calculations were horribly wrong. Louis XVI would be guillotined nine months into the conflict, Lafayette would desert to the enemy, and, while the Girondins certainly took power on the ruins of the constitutional monarchy in August 1792, they then struggled to master the crisis which they had helped to unleash.
