1415 : Henry V’s year of glory

An epic account of King Henry V and the mythical conflict of Agincourt, from the writer of the bestselling Time Traveller's advisor to Medieval England.
Henry V is considered the nice English hero. Lionised in his personal lifetime for his victory at Agincourt, his piety and his rigorous software of justice, he used to be increased by way of Shakespeare right into a champion of English nationalism. yet does he rather should be regarded as 'the maximum guy who ever governed England'?

In Ian Mortimer's groundbreaking publication, he portrays Henry within the pivotal 12 months of his reign; recording the dramatic occasion of 1415, he bargains the fullest, so much unique and least romanticised view we've of Henry and of what he did. the result's not just a desirable reappraisal of Henry; it brings to the fore many unpalatable truths which biographies and army historians have mostly neglected. on the centre of the ebook is the crusade which culminated within the conflict of Agincourt: a slaughter floor designed to not improve England's curiosity without delay yet to illustrate God's approval of Henry's royal authority on each side of the channel.

N. 2 Three things immediately strike us. A reader of the Latin text has felt moved to supplement it in the vernacular in an operation now referred to as code-switching.

We cannot afford to ignore them. Medieval Studies are already enormously and continuously in debt to Dr Richard Barber. He has also a strong family interest in medicine. It seems right, therefore, that I should repay the faith he has shown in the project by dedicating Anglo-Norman Medicine to him. N. puisse ayder de verme e de rauncle e de kaunker e de felun e gutefestre e de tuz maus + In nomine Patris + et Filii + et Spiritus Sancti, Amen + Seinte Susanne fu a tort criminé, [la] dilivera nostre Seynur.

The supplement is drawn from the realm of religious faith rather than from that of scientific medicine. The element of faith represented by the charm is expressed through ritual repetition. This juxtaposition of contrasts is entirely characteristic of medieval medicine in the Anglo-Norman period. Indeed, all students of medicine in medieval England are quickly obliged to confront the problem of multilingual documents and, more specifically, the phenomena of code-switching and code-mixing. Even those manuscripts which transmit extensive treatises in Latin, if they are at all used, reveal the influential presence of the vernacular and of popular medical beliefs of a non-scientific nature, some of which go back to very early authorities.
