Authority of Images / Images of Authority : Shaping Political and Cultural Identities in the Pre-Modern World PDF
Edited by Karen Fresco
Part of the Studies in Medieval and Early Modern Culture series
Focusing on language's political power, these essays discuss how representation, through language norms, plays and court spectacles, manipulations and adaptations of texts and images, both constitutes and reflects a cultural milieu.
The volume brings together various disciplinary approaches, offering a complex appreciation of these questions.
While a core of the essays focuses on France, the contributions engage a broad range of geographical contexts, from Byzantium to eastern Germany and England from the early centuries of the Common Era to the seventeenth century, revealing the prevalence and persistence of the key interconnected issues of images and authority.
