This book surveys the role of religious ideas and apocalyptic thought in shaping medieval society in Western Europe.
James Palmer undertook a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship at the University of Nottingham in 2006-7 (on Time and Power in the Early Medieval West). In 2007 he was appointed Lecturer in Medieval History at the University of St Andrews, where he has taught widely on the Middle Ages, including a course on Medieval Apocalyptic Traditions. His well-reviewed first book on Carolingian hagiography, Anglo-Saxons in a Frankish World, 690-900, was published in 2009. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society the following year. In 2011-12 James held a much-sought-after ARHC Fellowship, which allowed him to complete his research for The Apocalypse in the Early Middle Ages. He was a founding editor of The Medieval Journal, an international forum for interdisciplinary medieval studies. He is also a member of the Medieval Academy of America and the International Society of Anglo-Saxonists.
