Erik Goosman explores the way in which Frankish history writers retroactively dealt with the more contentious elements of the Carolingian past. Changes in the political and moral framework of Frankish society necessitated a flexible interaction with the past, lest the past lose its function as a moral anchor to present circumstances. Historiography was the principal means with which later generations of Franks were able to reshape their perception of the past.
