The Departments of History, English, and the Center for Ideas and Society present a lecture by Professor Yitzhak Hen.

Although these efforts were overshadowed by the burst of intellectual and artistic activity under Charlemagne and his successors, the cultural accomplishment of the Barbarian kingdoms of the early medieval West was neither marginal, nor trivial.
