“Pippin ordered Childeric III tonsured and sent to a monastery, where he died five years later, the last of the Merovingians.”
Susan Wise Bauer, The History of the Medieval World: From the Conversion of Constantine to the First Crusade

“Pippin was crowned the first king of the Carolingian dynasty in the city of Soissons, in a brand-new sacred ceremony that involved anointing with holy oil in the manner of an Old Testament theocratic king.*”
Susan Wise Bauer, The History of the Medieval World: From the Conversion of Constantine to the First Crusade

“The initial small step is simple: Rather than making a sweeping determination to tackle the Great Books (all of them), decide to begin on one of the reading lists in Part II. As you read each book, you’ll follow the pattern of the trivium. First you’ll try to understand the book’s basic structure and argument; next, you’ll evaluate the book’s assertions; finally, you’ll form an opinion about the book’s ideas. You’ll have to exercise these three skills of reading—understanding, analysis, and evaluation—differently for each kind of book.”
Susan Wise Bauer, The Well-Educated Mind: A Guide to the Classical Education You Never Had
