Riassunto: The history of the Holy Roman Empire was always intertwined with that of Europe as a whole. The stamp of the institutions and politics of the old Empire is still evident in 20th-century Europe, and many of the divisions and struggles in modern Europe, as well as the political ideals, have their roots in the Holy Roman Empire. With this in mind, the book aims to demonstrate the basic unity of European history. The book shows this unity of history as an essentially European institution, starting with the coronation of Charlemagne in Rome on Christmas Day AD 800, and ending with the illegal suspension of the Empire by Francis II in 1806 under pressure from Napoleon. Within the book's chronological framework, the author follows up certain themes: the status of the Emperor and meaning of kingship and leadership; the structure of the Empire, which was a federation, never an absolutist state; the internal struggles within the imperial system, and the constant struggle with rival empires in the west and east; the ever-shifting centres of gravity of the Empire, Aachen and the Rhineland, Rome, Nuremberg, Sicily, Madrid, Prague and Vienna; the large measure of political and religious toleration and the unending struggles between Empire and Church; and the ever-present ideal of a united Europe.
L'autore: Friedrich Heer was Professor of History of Ideas at Vienna University. He is the author of a number of important works on the Middle Ages and the history of ideas. In 1961 he was appointed, in addition to his academic posts, chief literary adviser to the Vienna Burgtheater.
