Edited by Robin Netherton, Gale R. Owen-Crocker, Monica L. Wright
Part of the Medieval Clothing and Textiles series
The essays in this volume continue the Journal's tradition of groundbreaking interdisciplinary work.
The volume opens with a survey of the discipline of medieval clothing and textiles, written by founding editor Gale R.
Owen-Crocker. The range of the other essays extends chronologically from the early Middle Ages through the fifteenth century and covers a variety of disciplines.
Topics include the conception of the author as a "wordweaver" in the literatures of Anglo-Saxon England; intertextual literary identities established through clothing in the Nibelungenlied and the Voelsunga Saga; the historical record of clothing and textiles at the court of King John of England; medallion silks, their use in Western Europe, and their representation in art; the vestments of Beguines and other penitential movements in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries; and a depiction of heraldic textile weaving in late-medieval art.
