This volume is an investigation of how Augustine was received in the Carolingian period, and the elements of his thought which had an impact on Carolingian ideas of ‚Äėstate‚Äô, rulership and ethics. It focuses on Alcuin of York and Hincmar of Rheims, authors and political advisers to Charlemagne and to Charles the Bald, respectively. It examines how they used Augustinian political thought and ethics, as manifested in the De civitate Dei, to give more weight to their advice. A comparative approach sheds light on the differences between Charlemagne‚Äôs reign and that of his grandson. It scrutinizes Alcuin‚Äôs and Hincmar‚Äôs discussions of empire, rulership and the moral conduct of political agents during which both drew on the De civitate Dei, although each came away with a different understanding. By means of a philological‚Äďhistorical approach, the book offers a deeper reading and treats the Latin texts as political discourses defined by content and language.
