Women, Art and Observant Franciscan Piety Caterina Vigri and the Poor Clares in Early Modern Ferrara

Caterina Vigri and the Poor Clares in Early Modern Ferrara The Poor Clares convent of Corpus Domini was the first home of Saint Catherine of Bologna, but after her departure, the convent reinvented itself as a noblewomen’s retreat. In doing so, it transformed ideals of poverty, humility and women’s education. This book, grounded in archival research and close examination of artworks from the convent, explores the visual culture and social history of an early modern Franciscan women’s community. Its careful analysis yields new insights into the changing role of the community in the d’Este political and civic spheres. Kathleen Giles Arthur is professor emerita of Italian Renaissance art history at James Madison University.

"This excellent Encyclopedia is an extraordinarily rich source of information on the cultural background of nation-formation. Its sophisticated and effective system of cross-references allows it to go beyond earlier English-language surveys in mapping all European nations comprehensively, regardless of size or power, in both East and West. It is equally even-handed in analysing "Romantic Nationalism", and the 19th-century national movements that were inspired by it, as motivated by an idealistic, Europe-wide cultivation effort for the improvement of national cultures (which I consider to form part of European values)." — Professor Miroslav Hroch, Charles University, Prague

"Ambitious in its scope and as far as I can see, impeccable in its execution, the ERNiE is a major addition to earlier historical encyclopaedias. It will become indispensable to scholars in all the disciplines concerned with either nationalism or romanticism." — Professor Peter Burke, University of Cambridge (Emmanuel College) Joep Leerssen is one of the world’s leading authorities on the cultural history of nationalism. For his work he was given the Spinoza Award in 2008, the highest award in Dutch science.

This monumental encyclopedia documents the presence and e�fects of cultural consciousnessraising in the early decades of European nationalism. The volume tracks how intellectuals, historians, novelists, poets, painters, folklorists, and composers, in an intensely collaborative transnational network, articulated the national identities and aspirations that would go on to determine European history and politics with e�fects that are still felt today.

Education, Sociability, and Governance This multinational collection of essays challenges the traditional image of a monolingual Ancient Regime in Enlightenment Europe, both East and West. Its archival research explores the important role played by selective language use in social life and in the educational provisions in the early constitution of modern society. A broad range of case studies show how language was viewed and used symbolically by social groups—ranging from the nobility to the peasantry—to develop, express, and mark their identities.

The Fonte Gaia from Renaissance to Modern Times A History of Construction, Preservation, and Reconstruction in Siena This book details the history of the beautiful Fonte Gaia in Siena, Italy. Created in the fifteenth century, the fountain was eventually replaced by a copy in the nineteenth century—a copy which itself is now old enough to need preservation. This book looks at the Italian Renaissance through the fate of the fountain, showing how both the Risorgimento and Purism have shaped our perceptions of the period and its art.

A Rothschild prayer book; an Italian bronze casket by Antico; a lavishly illustrated Carnival chronicle from sixteenth-century Germany; an altarpiece by the famous Flemish painter Pieter Brueghel the Younger—much of the artwork in this book, held by Australian collections, is essentially unknown beyond the continent, and so this collection of essays will surprise even specialists. The authors showcase these extraordinary objects to their full potential, revealing a wide range of contemporary art and historical research.

Antipodean Early Modern

For generations maps of the pilgrimage roads and of the reconquista have bedevilled the study of Spanish art and architecture. They have also infiltrated the popular imagination and come to dominate the ways we think about Spain and Portugal. Art in Spain and Portugal from the Romans to the Early Middle Ages: Routes and Myths sets out to diminish the power of these images and to enrich the wider English-language literature on early medieval art. Starting with the Romans and working through the vertical layers to the early Romanesque period Rose Walker draws together scholarly work hitherto confined within disciplinary boundaries, specialist regional studies, and findings familiar only to Spanish-speaking audiences. The author builds on these studies and her own research to present narratives that question art historical and archaeological orthodoxies. New perspectives emerge from the routes along which wealth and artistic expertise crossed the peninsula, showing the endurance of the north-south axis and the strength of networks and pragmatic alliances that often operated without regard for religious difference.

From Media Hype to Twitter Storm

In their accessible analysis, these preeminent translations of ten canonical Dutch poems discuss each poem’s historical context, revealing its political or ideological framing, religious elements, or the self-representational interests of the poet. The book focuses on how the use of the speaker’s “I” creates distance or proximity to the social context of the time. Close, detailed analysis of rhetorical techniques, such as the use of the apostrophe, illuminates the ways in which poetry reveals tensions in society.

Places, Imageries and the Digital Age Heritage and tourism mutually reinforce each other, with the presentation of heritage at physical sites mirrored by the ways heritage is presented on the internet. This interdisciplinary book uses humanities and social sciences to analyse the ways that heritage is branded

In his groundbreaking Imagined Communities, first published in 1983, Benedict Anderson argued that members of a community experience a “deep, horizontal camaraderie.” Despite being strangers, members feel connected in a web of imagined experiences. Yet while Anderson’s insights have been hugely in��uential, they remain abstract: it is di�ficult to imagine imagined communities. How do they evolve and how is membership constructed cognitively, socially and culturally? How do individuals and communities

contribute to group formation through the act of imagining? And what is the glue that holds communities together? Imagining Communities examines actual processes of experiencing the imagined community, exploring its emotive force in a number of case studies. Communal bonding is analysed, o�fering concrete insights on where and by whom the nation (or social group) is imagined and the role of individuals therein. O�fering eleven empirical case studies, ranging from the premodern to the modern age, this volume looks at and beyond the nation and includes regional as well as transnational communities as well. Gemma Blok is assistant professor in modern Dutch history at the University of Amsterdam. Vincent Kuitenbrouwer is lecturer at the History Department of the University of Amsterdam. Claire Weeda works as an assistant professor at the History Department of Leiden University.

Virtue Ethics and Education from Late Antiquity to the Eighteenth Century This book argues that premodern societies were characterised by the quest for “virtue.” The concept of virtue, complicated and much fought-over, permeated society, encouraging wisdom, courage, and justice, while simultaneously legitimising social hierarchies based on sex and nationality. By examining pedagogical texts, rituals, performances, and images, this

book illuminates the evolution of virtue through time, helping readers understand the guiding principles of historical action. Andreas Hellerstedt is a research coordinator based at the Department of History at the University of Stockholm.

Gendered Temporalities in the Early Modern World Is time gendered? This international, interdisciplinary anthology studies the early modern era to analyse how material objects express, shape, complicate, and extend human concepts of time and how people commemorate time di�ferently. It examines conceptual aspects of time, such as the categories women and men use to define it, and the somatic, lived experiences of time ranging between an instant and the course of family life. Drawing on a wide array of textual and material primary sources, this book assesses the ways that gender and other categories of di�ference a�fect understandings of time.

English Aristocratic Women's Religious Patronage, 1450-1550 The Fabric of Piety The role played by women in the evolution of religious art and architecture has been largely neglected. This study of upper-class women in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries corrects that oversight, uncovering the active role they undertook in choosing designs, materials, and locations for monuments, commissioning repairs and additions to many parish churches, chantry chapels, and almshouses characteristic of the English countryside. Their preferred art, Barbara J. Harris shows, reveals their responses to the religious revolution and signifies their preferred identities.

KNOWLEDGE COMMUNITIES

The Alexiad, written in the twelfth century by a Byzantine princess, Anna Komnene, tells the story of the Byzantine Empire during the reign of her father, o�fering accounts of its political and military history, including its involvement with the First Crusade. This book introduces new methods of research for studying the Alexiad, aiming primarily at analysing Anna Komnene’s literary expression. The book’s

approach focuses mainly on the author, the subject, the structure and the inner stylistic features, as well as the genre itself. The result is a substantially new outlook on the main Byzantine historiographical work of the twelfth century. Larisa Vilimonović is an assistant professor of philosophy at the University of Belgrade.

Communal singing and reading of Latin texts formed the core of Christian ritual and occupied hours of the Benedictine monk’s day. These monks also illustrated the texts, and the full meaning of these images is often only revealed when analysed in concert with the oral and written word that originally accompanied them. The earliest manuscripts of the Cîteaux, copied and illustrated during a period

of intense reform at the monastery, demonstrate the interdependence between art, liturgy, and reform. Diane J. Reilly is an associate professor of art history at Indiana University.

Medieval Communities and the Mad

Narratives of Crime and Mental Illness in Late Medieval France

Narratives of Crime and Mental Illness in Late Medieval France In medieval France, the collaboration between local communities and greater authorities grants us unusual insight into the period’s concept of madness. The mentally ill posed a unique challenge to the law, and, by examining how subjects and o�ficials worked together to define and contain mad individuals, this book

Medieval Communities and the Mad

analyses the development of that law and the interaction between local and regional communities. The author argues that this struggle often strengthened communities and proto-national identities.

Austmarr as a Northern mare nostrum, ca. 500-1500 CE Since prehistoric times, the Baltic Sea has acted as a crucial nexus that has shaped the languages, folklore, religions, literature, technology, and identities of the Germanic, Finnic, Sámi, Baltic, and Slavic peoples. This anthology first provides an in-depth introduction to the networks among those peoples. The contributors analyse conceptions of geography, followed by explorations of intercultural transfers, such as the slave trade and rune

carving techniques. Finally, they turn their attention to mythology and ceremonialism. Maths Bertell is a lecturer in religious studies at Mid-Sweden University.

Daniel Wollenberg

Medieval Imagery in Today's Politics Though the "medieval" is often deployed as a stigmatic symbol of all that is retrograde, against modernity, and barbaric, the medieval is increasingly being sought as a bedrock of tradition, heritage, and identity, especially by writers and politicians on the far right. Both characterisations – the medieval as violent other and the medieval as vital foundation – are mined and studied in this book. Daniel Wollenberg examines contemporary political uses of the Middle Ages to ask why the medieval continues to play such a prominent role in the political and historical imagination today.

By Geoffrey Koziol

The Peace of God

Geoffrey Koziol

The Peace of God was one of the most important movements of the Middle Ages, yet is highly contested. It has been seen as both radically innovative and fundamentally traditional; as millenarian and not millenarian; as a popular movement and as a way of consolidating power for the elites. Geo�frey Koziol argues for the validity of all these di�fering viewpoints, because specific instantiations of the Peace of God varied greatly, and there were inherent contradictions in early ideas of peace and peacemaking.

"Medieval Imagery in Today's Politics does a very good job of introducing the reader, in an accessible way, to the (often troubling) deployment of medievalism in modern political discourse." — Matthew Gabriele, Virginia Tech Daniel Wollenberg is an assistant professor of English at the University of Tampa, specialising in medieval literature and culture.

By Ian Wood

The Transformation of the Roman West The Church was at the heart of the political and social, as well as the religious changes that look place in the Roman West from the fourth to seventh centuries. In this concise and e�fective synthesis, Ian Wood considers some ways in which religion and the Church can be reintegrated into what has become a largely secular discourse, and he contends that the institutionalisation of the Church on a huge scale was a key factor in the transformation from an incipiently Christian Roman Empire to a world of thoroughly Christianised kingdoms.

"Nobody writes with more assurance, clarity, and precision on the history and historiography of the late Roman Empire and early Christian West than Ian Wood. This may prove to be the most original and influential short book in that line of work since Montesquieu's of 1734." — Mark Vessey, University of British Columbia Ian Wood, emeritus professor (Leeds), has authored over 200 articles on the post-Roman West and the recent monograph: The Modern Origins of the Early Middle Ages.

Teaching Rape in the Medieval Literature Classroom Approaches to Difficult Texts Teachers of medieval literature help students bridge the temporal, contextual, and linguistic gulfs between the Middle Ages and the twenty-first century. When episodes involving rape are thrown into the mix, that task becomes even more di�ficult. The essays in this volume approach these di�ficult texts in ways that are both academically and ethically sound, recognising that students and teachers bring a variety of experiences to the classroom that necessarily colour the reception of a given work.

"This collection will contribute significantly to how we approach sensitive materials in the classroom. Gulley has assembled a dynamic mix of scholars and institutions - universities, colleges (including a military school), and community colleges - that broaden the academic audience and offer instructors of medieval literature a view of what it is like to teach to differing constituencies under differing circumstances. On testing it in the classroom, I found students were more aware of sexual assault and the challenges of interpersonal relationships and responded to scenes of violation in ways I’ve not seen in prior years of teaching." — Eve Salisbury, Western Michigan University Alison Gulley is associate professor of English at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina.

Kurt Baschwitz A Pioneer of Communication Studies and Social Psychology

In this accessible, unique study of a forgotten but noteworthy figure, the author tells the story of the life of Kurt Baschwitz (1886-1968), a scholar who ��ed from the Nazis. He wrote six books, never translated into English, on four related themes: the press, propaganda, politics, and persecution. Baschwitz independently developed concepts that are now seen as key to communication science and social psychology, and the author places Baschwitz’s ideas in the wider context of his dramatic life and times.

Our current understanding of our world is nearly 350 years old. It stems from the ideas of Descartes and Newton and has brought us many great things, including modern science and increases in wealth, health and everyday living standards. Furthermore, it is so ingrained in our daily lives that we have forgotten it is a paradigm, not a fact. There are, however, some problems with it. First, there is no satisfactory explanation for why we have consciousness and experience meaning in our lives. Second, modern-day physics tells us that observations depend on characteristics of the observer at the large, cosmic, and small,

In The Universe, Life and Everything . . . Dialogues on our Changing Understanding of Reality, some of the scholars at the forefront of this change, from the fields of physics, psychology, and social sciences, discuss the direction it is taking and its urgency.

Antipodean Early Modern

Rose Walker (PhD, University of London, 1995) is an Associate Scholar at The Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London. Her research focuses on Spanish medieval art.

Anne Dunlop (ed.)

For generations maps of the pilgrimage roads and of the reconquista have bedevilled the study of Spanish art and architecture. They have also infiltrated the popular imagination and come to dominate the ways we think about Spain and Portugal. Art in Spain and Portugal from the Romans to the Early Middle Ages: Routes and Myths sets out to diminish the power of these images and to enrich the wider English-language literature on early medieval art. Starting with the Romans and working through the vertical layers to the early Romanesque period Rose Walker draws together scholarly work hitherto confined within disciplinary boundaries, specialist regional studies, and findings familiar only to Spanish-speaking audiences. The author builds on these studies and her own research to present narratives that question art historical and archaeological orthodoxies. New perspectives emerge from the routes along which wealth and artistic expertise crossed the peninsula, showing the endurance of the north-south axis and the strength of networks and pragmatic alliances that often operated without regard for religious difference.

Our current understanding of our world is nearly 350 years old. It stems from the ideas of Descartes and Newton and has brought us many great things, including modern science and increases in wealth, health and everyday living standards. Furthermore, it is so engrained in our daily lives that we have forgotten it is a paradigm, not fact. However, there are some problems with it: first, there is no satisfactory explanation for why we have consciousness and experience meaning in our lives. Second, modern-day physics tells us that observations depend on characteristics of the observer at the large, cosmic and small, subatomic scales. Third, the ongoing humanitarian and environmental crises show us that our world is vastly interconnected. Our understanding of reality is expanding to incorporate these issues. In The Universe, Life and Everything... Edited by RemcoDialogues Ensel andonEvelien Gans Understanding of Reality, some of the our Changing scholars at the forefront of this change discuss the direction it is taking and its urgency.

Naturalistic inquiry is about studying people in everyday circumstances by ordinary means. It strives to blend in, to respect people in their daily lives, to take their actions and experiences seriously, and to build on these carefully. Doing Qualitative Research: The Craft of Naturalistic Inquiry offers guidance, combining thoughtful reflection with practical tips. It is written for undergraduate and graduate students in social science; for practitioners in social work, healthcare, policy advice, and organizational consultancy; and for all who have a genuine interest in society and its members.
