The History of The Franks
by Gregory of Tours
A book written at the end of the 7th century that gives us a glimpse into the evolution of Christianity in Europe, The beginnings of the medieval states, Very personal gossip and views into the lives of the major figures of the time and after a few readings, you begin to understand and really like this guy, Bishop Gregory.
