Charlemagne spearheaded an intellectual movement to revive classical literature, arts, and learning in the Carolingian Empire. This movement included the copying of classical works in monasteries, the elevation of scholars into high office within the royal court and the preeminence of classical thinking as an ideal of scholarship. This revival became known as the Carolingian Renaissance in later times.
