This volume provides a fresh look at the Capetian century (1214-1314), a period that changed the cultural and political fabric and laid the foundation for the modernisation of the medieval West.
The period from the birth of Louis IX to the death of Philip the Fair is remarkable for a series of developments and accomplishments associated with the Capetian kings of France. Innovations in architecture, manuscript illumination, and music all helped shape the cultural fabric of French and European life. Administrative historians emphasize the development of political institutions that have been said to lay foundations of the modern State. ‘Moral reform’, partly in support of the crusading movement, led to various changes in policies toward Jews, prostitutes, heretics, and many other social groups.
This volume brings together essays presented at the Capetian Century Conference held at Princeton University, commemorating two seminal anniversaries bracketing the ‘Capetian Century’ — the Battle of Bouvines (1214), and the death of Philip the Fair (1314).
