Two Kingdoms
Ecclesiology in Carolingian Political Thought
Karl F. Morrison


The Two Kingdoms treats a major achievement of the Carolingian "Renaissance," Frankish ecclesiology, and the influence of 9th-century ecclesiology upon contemporary political thought. Dr. Morrison focuses particularly on the argument that, in this world, government was divided between the earthly kingdom and the kingdom of the Church.

First published in 1964.
