First published in 2007, this was the first significant study of the incorporation of the Church in southern Italy into the mainstream of Latin Christianity during the eleventh and twelfth centuries. Professor G. A. Loud examines the relationship between Norman rulers, south Italian churchmen and the external influence of the new 'papal monarchy'. He discusses the impact of the creation of the new kingdom of Sicily in 1130; the tensions that arose from the papal schism of that era; and the religious policy and patronage of the new monarchs. He also explores the internal structures of the Church, both secular and monastic, and the extent and process of Latinisation within the Graecophone areas of the mainland and on the island of Sicily, where at the time of the Norman conquest the majority of the population was Muslim. This is a major contribution to the political, religious and cultural history of the Central Middle Ages.
Social movements and armed insurrections were exceptionally widespread in 20th century Latin America, and continue to be important to this day. Few countries avoided the wave of political upheavals and social instability, as well as the government's repressive answer to them. And over the last decade, there has been a great increase in the amount of work being written on various movements or groups. Fernando Calderon cuts through the mountains of material to deliver students a clear, straightforward overview of Latin American revolutions and social movements during the modern period. Bolstered by primary sources and a well-edited companion website, Revolutions and Social Movements in Modern Latin America gives students both a solid background in some of the most dynamic incidents in Latin American history and a range of sources to show them what it was like for people living through these conflicts.
The book includes coverage of:
Following a broadly chronological course, Revolutions and Social Movements in Modern Latin America will be indispensable to anyone teaching or studying revolutions in modern Latin America.
