The story of how the European Christian Nation States rose from the ashes of the Roman Empire is one of the most interesting stories from history. Rome had been a City State that became a Republic, expanded rapidly, became an Empire and then fell. In the Eastern Roman Empire, the Byzantine Emperors continued in a Roman tradition, modified by the influences around them. In the West, the Fall was sudden. There was a period of an increasing number of Roman defeats and withdrawals, but this was in a very short part of Roman history. When Rome fell in the West it left a huge vacuum that was filled by what the Romans regarded as the barbarian hordes.
Charlemagne created a new Roman Empire in the West although it is often regarded as a restoration. Parts of Roman life were restored but this was a Christian Empire and it led to the creation of Nation States and, in the case of the Galwegian Robert de Bruce, independence for semi-independent nation States.
This is a most fascinating account of the process that created a new order after the fall of Rome. The very readable text is supported by a short but useful photo-plate section.
