Download or read book entitled Heart of Europe by author: Peter H. Wilson which was release on 29 February 2016 and published by Harvard University Press with total page 1024 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. The Holy Roman Empire lasted a thousand years, far longer than ancient Rome. Its continuity rested on the ideal of a unified Christian civilization. As Peter Wilson shows, the Empire tells the story of Europe better than histories of individual nation-states, and its legacy can be seen today in debates over the nature of the European Union.
