Renaissance Impostors and Proofs of Identity, Hardback Book

Renaissance Impostors and Proofs of Identity Hardback

Description

Early Modern Europe was teeming with impostors. Identity theft was only one form of misrepresentation: royal pretenders, envoys from imaginary lands, religious dissimulators, cross-dressers, false Gypsies - all these caused deep anxiety, leading authorities to invent increasingly sophisticated means for unmasking deception.
