University of Pennsylvania Press, 1991 - 268

Histories of medieval Europe have typically ignored southern Italy, looking south only in the Norman period.

Kreutz writes the first modern study in English of the land, political structures, and cultures of southern Italy in the two centuries before the Norman conquests. This was a pan-Meditteranean society, where the Roman past and Lombard-Germanic culture met Byzantine and Islamic civilization, creating a rich and unusual mix.
