Vision, Devotion, and Self-Representation in Late Medieval Art

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.

“Musical, insightful, and all the way human.”—Claudia Rankine, 2016 Barnard Women Poets Prize citation Each poem in Brittany Perham’s prize-winning collection links two portraits: lover and beloved, child and parent, citizen and country, spirit and body, living and dead. Each speaker investigates what it means to be in relationship to another: what does it mean to see and be seen, to reflect and be reflected, to address and be addressed? With musicality, grit, and humor, these poems challenge our conceptions of identity and language. By questioning the ways we think and speak, the ways we rehash and reshape our experience, they formalize obsession. Emotionally stirring and unapologetic, Double Portrait contemplates the nature of devotion.

Communities of Devotion

Religious Orders and Society in East Central Europe, 1450–1800

Author: Dr Elaine Fulton,Dr Maria Craciun

Between the later middle ages and the eighteenth century, religious orders were in the vanguard of reform movements within the Christian church. Recent scholarship on medieval Europe has emphasised how mendicants exercised a significant influence on the religiosity of the laity by actually shaping their spirituality and piety. In a similar way for the early modern period, religious orders have been credited with disseminating Tridentine reform, training new clergy, gaining new converts and bringing those who had strayed back into the fold. Much about this process, however, still remains unknown, particularly with regards to east central Europe. Exploring the complex relationship between western monasticism and lay society in east central Europe across a broad chronological timeframe, this collection provides a re-examination of the level and nature of interaction between members of religious orders and the communities around them. That the studies in this collection are all located in east central Europe - Transylvania, Hungary, Austria, and Bohemia- fulfils a second key aim of the volume: the examination of clerical and lay piety in a region of Europe almost entirely ignored by western scholarship. As such the volume provides an important addition to current scholarship, showcasing fresh research on a subject and region on which little has been published in English. The volume further contributes to the reintegration of eastern and western European history, expanding the existing parameters of scholarly discourse into late medieval and early modern religious practice and piety.
