The Holy Roman Empire highlighted the fallacy of a confederation to be able to serve the best interests of of its constituents. This is not an easy read but it is a worthwhile one. I do not profess to understand all of the Latin used.

James Bryce, 1st Viscount Bryce, OM, GCVO, PC, FRS, FBA was born on 10th May 1838 in Arthur Street, Belfast, County Antrim His early years were idyllically spent at his grandfather's Whiteabbey residence. His uncle, Reuben John Bryce, was his educator at the Belfast Academy, then followed stints at Glasgow High School, the University of Glasgow, the University of Heidelberg and Trinity College, Oxford. His reputation as an historian had been made as early as 1864 for his book on the Holy Roman Empire. Bryce, an ardent Liberal in politics, was, in 1880, elected to parliament for the Tower Hamlets seat in London.

The Holy Roman Empire. Автор: Viscount James Bryce. 6. See the book of Optatus, bishop of Milevis, Contra Donatistas. Non enim respublica est in ecclesia, sed ecclesia in republica, id est, in imperio Romano, cum super imperatorem non sit nisi solus Deus:' (p. 999 of vol. ii. of Migne's Patrologiæ Cursus completus. The treatise of Optatus is full of interest, as shewing the growth of the idea of the visible Church, and of the primacy of Peter's chair, as constituting its centre and representing its unity.

Bryce approached the subject of the Holy Roman Empire from only one angle, but that a very important one. What interested him was to trace the history of the imperial idea from the founding to the termination of the Holy Roman Empire. He was not interested in its actual history save in so far as that narrative illuminated his major thesis. He endeavored to interpret and to evaluate the influence of a great political idea in medieval and modern history. The facts throughout the book were reduced to that minimum necessary to give coherence and cohesiveness to the subject.

Стр. 113 - The Holy Roman Church and the Holy Roman Empire are one and the same thing in two aspects ; and Catholicism, the principle of the universal Christian society, is also Romanism ; that is, rests upon Rome as the origin and type of its universality, manifesting itself in a mystic dualism which corresponds to the two natures of its Founder.

The Holy Roman Empire Paperback – Import, 1968. by james bryce (Author).

  • There are surprisingly few historical overviews of the HRE in English. This is definitely a good starting point: it was written in the late 19th century by a British jurist, so it shares many of the biases of its time and era, and has a legal bent (much ado about coronation oaths, the nature of the feudal bonds, etc.) But it covers the topic well - the life cycle of the HRE. For greater depth in one volume, as well as a German 20th century scholarly perspective, I recommend Friedrich Heer's book of the same title. For even greater depth, there are a number of works that focus on time segments, by such authors as Timothy Reuter, Heinrich Fichtenau, and Horst Fuhrmann, etc.

  • Weird but very interesting historical overview of Holy Roman Empire from fall of city of Rome to fall of Holy Roman Empire. There are no references or footnotes. It says it's illustrated, but that's only a handful of images at the beginnings of chapters for the most part. This is really an author giving a broad overview of the religious and political concepts that defined the Papacy and Holy Roman Empire through its history, and how they changed with the changing worldview of Europeans. In particular, there is was a strongly held belief that there should be one religious leader (the pope) and one leader of the physical world (the Holy Roman Emperor). Obviously, this was never the case, but it was a strong concept that held the institution of the empire together long after it ceased to have any real relevance. If you are looking for something clear and explicitly chronological, this is not for you. On the other hand, it's one of the only books out there that really deals with the Holy Roman Empire from its start to its end.

  • A bit of a slog, but interesting. Typical sentence: "So perfect a union was now no longer possible in the Roman Empire, for the Christian community had already a governing body of its own in those rulers and teachers on whom the growth of sacramentalism, and of sacerdotalism its necessary consequence, was every day conferring more and more power, while marking them off more sharply from the mass of the Christian people." Sentences of this convoluted architecture occur on every page, many much longer and less direct,so sharpen your analytic powers!.

  • The Holy Roman Empire highlighted the fallacy of a confederation to be able to serve the best interests of of its constituents. Bryce's language is somewhat archaic now but his viewpoint of the Holy Roman Empire just a few decades after it's last official act still resonates. This is not an easy read but it is a worthwhile one. I do not profess to understand all of the Latin used. But there can be no doubt that the illegal granting of Charlemagne by Pope Leo of an a empire changed the world as it was known. Then we see the empire blunted by the Germanic Dukes, each trying to protect its resources while still needing a superior structure. Meanwhile the Pope is fighting for the supremacy of the church over secular affairs. We do not now believe as strongly in God as they did and the Pope had a strong influence in weakening the a Empire that Charlemagne had established. It seemed at times an Eire that nobody wanted but to rid it ultimately was not politically feasible. Finally, it died under the Habsburgs who unable to provide the leadership to overcome the feudal dukes. There are lessons for the future if our world leaders would take the time and the wisdom to reconsider the 1000 years of the Holy Roman Empire.

  • It's a short work, and the author is not trying to provide a blow by blow history of the HRE. This is more a discussion of it, and it's impact on Europe. There is also quite a bit on the follow up in the German Empire recently formed when this was written. There is also an appendix on Schleswig-Holstein and the various Burgundys.

  • This is not an authorized reprint of the early 20th C. "enlarged and revised" edition. "First Rate Publishers" skirted copyright laws by reprinting Bryce's book without page numbers, no table of contents, no footnotes, no chapter notes, no maps, no chronological table, no index. This publication is unreliable; it is worthless!

  • Written more than 100 years ago, the style is different than modern style but the content was very enjoyable.

    I have read a great deal of the Holy Roman Empire from the beginning of the Hapsburg dynasty, and I know a little of it from the childless marriage of the emperor to King Henry's daughter (and another King's brother's election as King of the Romans who never obtained his crown). The sister, Matilda, returned to England following her husband's death, and was involved in the succession fiasco with Stephen. And that is all I knew about that earlier period.

    I did not know much about how the Holy Roman Empire got its name since the emperors were Franks and then "Germans." This author explains it, and he does it with wonderful "what if" detail.

    If Columbus had not sailed west to find another route to the Indies, someone else would have done it, eventually, says he. But if one Pope and on Frankish king had not been where they were on Christmas Day, 800 A.D., the entire history of the western world would have been different.

    You have to read it to follow the waxing and waning of power from the Pope to the Emperor, and back and forth. And back and forth. Great story.

  • Bryce was obviously an extremely well read author. He makes numerous references to original Latin sources to substantiate his views. Due to Bryce's lucid writing style, the reader gains a clear and concise overview of the subject without having to wade through those referred to texts.
