The Holy Roman Empire
by

Publisher: The Macmillan Company
ISBN/ASIN: B009QA3OR6
Number of pages: 460

Description:
The object of this treatise is not so much to give a narrative history of the countries included in the Romano-Germanic Empire -- Italy during the middle ages, Germany from the ninth century to the nineteenth -- as to describe the Holy Empire itself as an institution or system, the wonderful offspring of a body of beliefs and traditions which have almost wholly passed away from the world.
