By the early ninth century, taking responsibility for aseriesof social, religious and political transformations had becomean integral part of running the Carolingian empire. This booktakes a fresh look at these transformations during theoptimistic first decades of the ninth century. Extrapolatingfrom a series of detailed case studies rather than presentinga new grand narrative, it offers new interpretations ofcontemporary theories of personal improvement andinstitutional reforms, and shows the self-awareness of its main instigators as they pondered what it meant to be agood Christian in a good Christian empire.
