Abstract:

"The reign of Louis IX is widely recognized as one of the most important in the history of medieval France. Art and Crusade in the Age of Saint Louis examines the art patronage of the French king during the formative period of his reign. Focusing on the Sainte-Chapelle - the palace chapel and reliquary constructed in Paris - and on the Arsenal Old Testament - an illuminated Bible made to commemorate the king's disastrous crusade to the Holy Land - Daniel Weiss examines these works within their social, political, and religious contexts. This study offers a new perspective on the meaning of art produced during a defining moment in the history of medieval France and, more generally, thirteenth-century society, both the Byzantine east and the Latin west."--Jacket.
