♥ Book Title : Bridging the Medieval-Modern Divide
☯ Full Synopsis : "The debate about when the middle ages ended and the modern era began, has long been a staple of the historical literature. In order to further this debate, and illuminate the implications of a longue durée approach to the history of the Reformation, this collection offers a selection of essays that address the medieval-modern divide. Covering a broad range of topics - encompassing legal, social, cultural, theological and political history - the volume asks fundamental questions about how we regard history, and what historians can learn from colleagues working in other fields that may not at first glance appear to offer any obvious links. By focussing on the concept of the medieval-modern divide - in particular the relation between the Middle Ages and the Reformation - each essay examines how a medievalist deals with a specific topic or issue that is also attracting the attention of Reformation scholars. In so doing it underlines the fact that both medievalists and modernists are often involved in bridging the medieval-modern divide, but are inclined to construct parallel bridges that end between the two starting points but do not necessarily meet. As a result, the volume challenges assumptions about the strict periodization of history, and suggest that a more flexible approach will yield interesting historical insights."Article| Professor James Muldoon| Statement ..."

The definitive look at the writing of history by a historian, Historiography provides key insights into some of the most important issues, debates and innovations in modern historiography. Praise for the first edition: “Breisach’s comprehensive coverage of the subject and his clear presentation of the issues and the complexity of an evolving discipline easily make his work the best of its kind.”—Lester D. Stephens, American Historical Review"Article| Ernst Breisach| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Friendship in the Middle Ages and Early Modern Age
☯ Full Synopsis : "Although it seems that erotic love generally was the prevailing topic in the medieval world and the Early Modern Age, parallel to this the Ciceronian ideal of friendship also dominated the public discourse, as this collection of essays demonstrates. Following an extensive introduction, the individual contributions explore the functions and the character of friendship from Late Antiquity (Augustine) to the 17th century. They show the spectrum of variety in which this topic appeared not only in literature, but also in politics and even in painting.""Article| Albrecht Classen| Statement ..."

Editors Jane Spencer, Derek Ryan and Karen Edwards have assembled some of the field's leading scholars to demonstrate how reading animals in literature provokes new ways of thinking. Reading Literary Animals breaks down the old silos and gives answers to some of the most fundamental questions being asked in classrooms today surrounding the presence and absence of animals in canonical works since the Medieval period, including contributions on the works of Shakespeare, William Wordsworth and Ted Hughes"--"Article| Jane Spencer| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Vision, Devotion, and Self-Representation in Late Medieval Art
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book focuses on one of the most attractive yet poorly understood features of late-medieval manuscript illumination: the portrait of the book owner at prayer within the pages of her own prayer-book. Beguiling because they appear to offer a direct view into the lives of medieval individuals - especially women - these are in fact religiously loaded images. They concern themselves with the relationship between visible images, visionary experience, and God's omnipresent vision, and thus strike at the very core of medieval Christian concerns about salvation and the efficacy of prayer."Article| Alexa Sand| Statement ..."
