A major aspect of Charles' campaigns had been Christianization, both for its own sake, as well as  to make Saxons more docile, loyal subjects of a consciously Christian king. He thus used the  church and its structures to support his conquest. Forcing Saxons to accept the new faith, he set  up bishoprics and dioceses, endowed new monasteries, and equated pagan relapses with revolt.  The Pope and his Irish-English monastics responded by vigorously missionizing the region.  Another method of Saxon pacification involved population exchanges. Moving large numbers of  them into western Frankish lands, he brought in Frankish peasant colonizers. In addition to  numerous garrisons and border troops, Charles granted much land to Frankish counts in the area.  Gradually, the region was well integrated.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
