Textblock has light soiling. Former owner's stamp to title page. Dustjacket has shelfwear and rubbing. Browning to spine of DJ. Light chipping to DJ's spine and corners. ; On the death of Theodosius in 395, the Visigoths renounced their allegiance to Rome and chose Alaric I as their ruler. Alaric invaded Greece and then Italy, and in 410 he captured and pillaged the city of Rome. In that same year he was succeeded by Ataulf, who led the Visigoths across the Pyrenees mountain range into Spain. From 415 to 418, under the next ruler, Wallia, the Visigoths extended their realm over a great part of Spain and southern Gaul, with Toulouse as their capital. Wallia was succeeded by the reputed son of Alaric, Theodoric I, who died fighting as an ally of Rome against the Huns at the Battle of Châlons. The most notable of the Spanish Visigothic kings was Euric, who reigned from about 420 to 484. He was a son of Theodoric I. Under Euric, who declared his rule to be independent of any federation with Rome, the kingdom of Toulouse included almost all of Spain and most of Gaul west of the Rhône River and south of the Loire River. Euric introduced many aspects of Roman civilization and drew up a code of law combining Roman and German elements. The kingdom was, however, continually beset by both internal and external difficulties. The kingship was nominally elective, and the powerful Visigothic nobles stood against attempts to found a hereditary royal house. Externally, the Byzantine Empire and the Franks menaced the Visigothic lands. In order to instill greater loyalty in his rebellious Roman and Christian subjects, Alaric II in 506 introduced the collection of laws known as the Breviary of Alaric. A year later, Clovis I, king of the Franks, defeated the Visigoths at the Battle of Vouillé, in which Alaric II was killed. Most of Provence was separated from the Gothic lands, and the Visigothic kingdom was confined almost entirely to Spain. Despite the attempts of a long line of Gothic kings to hold the kingdom together, the power of the Visigoths steadily declined. The last king, Roderick, was defeated and probably killed by the Muslims in the Battle of Río Barbate in 711. By 713 Spain was partially conquered by the Moors, and the Visigothic power survived in the independent Christian kingdom of Asturias. Looks at the Chronicle of 754 to address questions as: what were the political and military achievements of the Gothic Kings? How much of the Roman administrative machinery did they preserve a civil service of their own? How did they, as Christian heretics, relate to their catholic subjects? And what was the character of the councils of Toledo? ; 376 pages

128 Wolfram, Herwig; Thomas Dunlap (Tr. ) THE ROMAN EMPIRE AND ITS GERMANIC PEOPLES
University of California Press 1997 0520085116 / 9780520085114 Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Dustjacket is protected in mylar. Minor scuffing to boards. ; 1.1 x 9.2 x 6.2 Inches; 379 pages; The names of early Germanic warrior tribes and leaders resound in songs and legends; the real story of the part they played in reshaping the ancient world is no less gripping. Herwig Wolfram's panoramic history spans the great migrations of the Germanic peoples and the rise and fall of their kingdoms between the third and eighth centuries, as they invaded, settled in, and ultimately transformed the Roman Empire. As Germanic military kings and their fighting bands created kingdoms, and won political and military recognition from imperial governments through alternating confrontation and accommodation, the "tribes" lost their shared culture and social structure, and became sharply differentiated. They acquired their own regions and their own histories, which blended with the history of the empire. In Wolfram's words, "the Germanic peoples neither destroyed the Roman world nor restored it; instead, they made a home for themselves within it. " This story is far from the "decline and fall" interpretation that held sway until recent decades. Wolfram's narrative, based on his sweeping grasp of documentary and archaeological evidence, brings new clarity to a poorly understood period of Western history.

130 Wright, Joseph & O. L. Sayce GRAMMAR OF THE GOTHIC LANGUAGE And the Gospel of St. Mark, Selections from the Other Gospels and the Second Epistle to Timothy, with Notes and Glossary
Oxford Clarendon Press 1966 0198119224 / 9780198119227 Second Edition Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
Minor shelfwear. ; 383 pages; The author of several Old English and Old High German primers and grammars, Joseph Wright wrote the present book as an alternative to revising his earlier Gothic Primer for a third edition. The Grammar provides a comprehensive knowledge of Gothic and understanding of comparative Germanic grammar, essential to anyone studying the ancient Germanic languages. By way of readings, the book provides the Greek texts of the gospels of St matthew (Chapter VI) and St. Luke (Chapter XV) along with the Gothic translations by Ulfilas (AD 311-383) , bishop of the Goths. Interesting for students of comparative philology. A knowledge of Gothic is indispensable to students of the oldest periods of other Germanic languages, this book will be of interest to students whose interests are mainly philological and linguistic. This Grammar provides a comprehensive knowledge of Gothic and an understanding of comparative Germanic grammar. If Wulfila had not translated the very Bible into Gothic, we wouldn't have today any tangible hint of the existence of this early Germanic language.
