Locating the Middle Ages : the spaces and places of medieval culture( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This interdisciplinary collection of sixteen essays explores the significance of space and place in Late Antique and medieval culture, as well as modern reimaginings of medieval topographies. Its case studies draw on a wide variety of critical approaches and cover architecture, the visual arts (painting and manuscript illumination), epic, romance, historiography, hagiography, cartography, travel writing, as well as modern English poetry. Challenging simplistic binaries of East and West, self and other, Muslim and Christian, the volume addresses the often unexpected roles played by space and place in the construction of individual and collective identities in religious and secular domains. The essays move through world spaces (mappaemundi, the exotic and the mundane East, the Mediterranean); empires, nations, and frontier zones; cities (Avignon, Jerusalem, and Reval); modern visions of the medieval world. 0Also part of series: King's College London, CLAMS

Queens and queenship in medieval Europe : proceedings of a conference held at King's College London, April 1995( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The image, status and function of queens and empresses, regnant and consort, in kingdoms stretching from England to Jerusalem in the European middle ages, are the focus of these studies. They confront many of the central issues in the study of women's authority and power in medieval societies and raise questions about the perception of women rulers in contemporary records (and modern historical writing). Did queens exercise real or counterfeit power? Did the promotion of the cult of the Virgin enhance or restrict their sphere of action?
Nobles and nobility in medieval Europe : concepts, origins, transformations by Anne Duggan( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text brings together the work of 14 scholars, embracing regions as diverse as England, Italy, France, Norway, Poland, Portugal and the Romano-German empire. It covers the whole medieval period from the 5th to the 16th centuries, confronting central issues about the origins and nature of nobility, its relationship with the late Roman world, its acquisition and exercise of power, its association with military obligation, and its gradual pacification and transformation into a more-or-less willing instrument of royal government in most regions at the end of the medieval age. Particular attention is paid to the conceptualization of nobility, the dichotomy between nobility of birth and nobility of character, the role of chivalry, the importance of physical force and the fear it engendered, and the elevated status given to noble women as the co-progenitors and transmitters of noble blood
