Silver penny of King Coenwulf of Mercia (796-821), London, 796-821. The portrait is probably copied from contemporary coins of Emperor Louis the Pious, which were in turn inspired by Roman coin portraits. CM.1.162-1990, Blunt Collection.
This paper was part of a very interesting session on the Early Middle Ages. The papers covered Eastern European Infant Burial, the archaeology of medieval feasting and conversion. This paper contrasted the conversion policies of Charlemagne versus those of Louis the Pious. It was a fascinating paper. http://www.medievalists.net/2013/05/17/louis-the-pious-and-the-conversion-of-the-danes/ #kzoo #medieval
Theodulf of Orléans (c. 750(/60) – 18 December 821) was a writer, poet and the Bishop of Orléans (c. 798 to 818) during the reign of Charlemagne and Louis the Pious. He was a key member of the Carolingian Renaissance and an important figure during the many reforms of the church under Charlemagne, as well as almost certainly the author of the Libri Carolini, "much the fullest statement of the Western attitude to representational art that has been left to us by the Middle Ages"
