Pippin III and the Pull of Rome

Pippin III and the Pull of Rome

(p.162) X Pippin III and the Pull of Rome
The Frankish Church

J. M. Wallace‐Hadrill

Oxford University Press

Starts by looking at the weakening of the Merovingian dynasty and the growing divisions between eastern and western Francia (Austrasia and Neustria) from the middle of the 7th century to the middle of the eighth — seen later as the gestation period for the warrior (though pious) Carolingians. Examines the rule of Pippin III, the first Carolingian king, who like his brother Carloman, had inherited his father Charles Martel's commitment to military expansion over the Rhine; Carloman initially ruled over Austrasia and Pippin over Neustria, but when Carloman retired to the abbey of Monte Cassino, Peppin took over the Frankish monarchy. Topics addressed include the councils run by the brothers when they were both ruling, the request by Pope Stephen II to Pippin for help in combating the threat from the Lombards and the subsequent closer relationship with Rome, Pippin's role in supervising the Church and holding councils after his succession, the establishment of confraternities of prayer, Chrodegang of Metz and his Rule for secular clergy and Roman liturgical provisions, and ecclesiastical architecture and art.
