Holy Roman Empire

Charlemagne's reign saw the standardization of monasticism, worship,

music, and education in the church. Those reforms would give general

shape to western Catholicism that, in some ways, endured into the

modern period. Equally important was Charlemagne's assumption of

the title of Holy Roman Emperor. That act would establish a political

office that would exist in Europe until the end of World War I in the

twentieth century. It also became a cause for friction between Rome

and Constantinople because the Byzantine emperors saw

Charlemagne's act as an intrusion on their legitimate claim to be

the successors of the old Roman Empire.

Seals of Charlemagne, derived from

antique intaglio gems.

This one depicts a Roman emperor.
