A while ago, I’ve written a review on the collected volume Polity and neighbourhood in early medieval Europe edited by Julia Escalona Monge, Orri Vésteinsson and Stuart Brookes which has now been published in the Rottenburger Jahrbuch für Kirchengeschichte (2021). In the volume, comparative historical approaches are used to study the influence of external political power on everyday life and vice-versa. The review can be read in the RJKG and also here.
