Dynastic Porphyry Tombs of the Norman Period in Sicily (Dumbarton Oaks Studies : Vol 5) - Josef Deer Superb scholarship regarding the Norman claim and success in validating their right to the Kingdom of Sicily. Honestly, the rise of Catholic Church to its own monarchical status and Normans in England and Sicily is fascinating. The frequent Latin phrases pulled from Church documents were challenging, but the footnotes and plates made up for it.
