The mind's eye : art and theological argument in the Middle Ages( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Mind's Eye focuses on the relationships among art, theology, exegesis, and literature--issues long central to the study of medieval art, yet ripe for reconsideration. Essays by leading scholars from many fields examine the illustration of theological commentaries, the use of images to expound or disseminate doctrine, the role of images within theological discourse, the development of doctrine in response to images, and the place of vision and the visual in theological thought. At issue are the ways in which theologians responded to the images that we call art and in which images entered into dialogue with theological discourse. In what ways could medieval art be construed as argumentative in structure as well as in function? Are any of the modes of representation in medieval art analogous to those found in texts? In what ways did images function as vehicles, not merely vessels, of meaning and signification? To what extent can exegesis and other genres of theological discourse shed light on the form, as well as the content and function, of medieval images? These are only some of the challenging questions posed by this unprecedented and interdisciplinary collection, which provides a historical framework within which to reconsider the relationship between seeing and thinking, perception and the imagination in the Middle Ages." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0654/2005049252-d.html

Crown and veil : female monasticism from the fifth to the fifteenth centuries by Ruhrlandmuseum Essen( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and German and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Crown and Veil offers a broad introduction to the history and visual culture of female monasticism in the Middle Ages, from the earliest communities of Late Antiquity to the Reformation. Scholars from numerous disciplines offer a wide range of perspectives not to be found in any other single book on the subject, placing the art, architecture, literature, liturgy, religious practices, and economic foundations of these communities within a wide historical and cultural context." "Focusing on the visual culture of female monastic communities in the German Empire, Frankish Gaul, Langobard Italy, and Anglo-Saxon England, this volume underscores the richness of largely unfamiliar material and its role in shaping distinctive forms of religious life."--Jacket

Script as image by Jeffrey F Hamburger( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the Middle Ages, writing conveyed far more than information. In contradistinction to the modern separation of image and text and, by implication, form and content, which was reified with the invention of printing, illuminated manuscripts made images out of words. In consonance with Christian doctrine, which declared that the Word had become flesh, letters painted on parchment assumed bodily presence to create effects of power and persuasion. Painted letters elicited modes of performance, oral recitation and ritual action. Far from calligraphic ornament or a medium with prescribed boundaries, medieval lettering reveals itself as a flexible instrument in which various categories of human experience and expression - the audible, the visible, the symbolic and the figurative - come together. Among the topics touched on by this book are display scripts, monograms, nomina sacra and carmina figurata, epigraphic inscriptions, chrysography and color, speech scrolls, relationships among author, scribe and artist as expressed through scripts, the anthropomorphic dimensions of abstract lettering, and the impact of iconic scripts on the reader"--

12 editions published in 2007 in German and English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the role of religious women in the patronage and production of art during the Middle Ages. Combining perspectives from various disciplines, the volume considers the visual culture of female monasticism as well as its impact on the broader culture." "Forty-five texts in German, English, and French by scholars from Europe and the United States are organized thematically, presenting the results of new research on textual sources, buildings, and works of art from across northern, southern and eastern Europe."--Jacket
Leaves from Paradise : the cult of John the Evangelist at the Dominican Convent of Paradies bei Soest by Jeffrey F Hamburger( Book )

14 editions published in 2008 in English and German and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A pair of leaves recently acquired by Houghton Library presents an opportunity to examine the illuminated sequence composed in honor of John the Evangelist, Verbum Dei Deo natum, within its broader cultural context. Written and illuminated at the Dominican nunnery of Paradies bei Soest in Westfalia as part of a set of liturgical books that are among the most elaborate of their kind from the entire Middle Ages, the richly decorated fragments promise to transform our understanding of the special place of Christ's "beloved disciple" in 14th-century art, liturgy, theology, and mysticism. In addition to an introduction on art and liturgy in the Middle Ages, the interdisciplinary collection of essays includes contributions by musicologists, philologists and art historians."--Jacket

Catherine of Siena : the creation of a cult by Jeffrey F Hamburger( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on the critical case of Catherine of Siena, the essays in this volume consider the role of texts, translations and images in various media in constructing and disseminating the cult of a saint in the late Middle Ages. How does one construct a saint and promote a cult beyond the immediate community in which he or she lived? Italian mendicants had accumulated a good deal of experience in dealing with this politically explosive question. The posthumous description of the life of Francis of Assisi written by the Master General of the order, Bonaventura, could be regarded as paradigmatic in this regard. A similarly massive intervention in the production and diffusion of a cult can be observed in the case of the Dominican tertiary, Catherine of Siena, who in many respects 'competed' with Francis of Assisi. Raymund of Capua, the Master General of the order, established the foundation for the dissemination of the cult by writing the authoritative life, but it was only the following generation that succeeded in establishing the cult
Sign and design : script as image in cross-cultural perspective (300-1600 CE) by Brigitte Bedos Rezak( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From antiquity to the modern age, legal, documentary, exegetical, literary, and linguistic traditions have viewed the relationship between image and letter in diverse ways. There is a long history of scholarship examining this relationship, probing the manner and meaning of its dynamics in terms of equivalency, complementarity, and polarity. 00This volume addresses the pictorial dimension of writing systems from cross-cultural and multidisciplinary perspectives. Historians?including specialists in art and literature?paleographers, and anthropologists consider imagistic scripts of the ancient and medieval Near East, Europe, Byzantium, and Latin America, and within Jewish, polytheistic, Christian, and Muslim cultures. They engage with pictographic, ideographic, and logographic writing systems, as well as with alphabetic scripts, examining diverse examples of cross-pollination between language and art
