Abstract

The core of this book on the French verse Alexander in France and Italy was written by eminent Alexander specialist David J.A. Ross, who left an incomplete typescript at his death. The baton was taken up by an international team of specialists in medieval literature and art history, Maud Pèrez-Simon, author of 'Les manuscrits du Roman d?Alexandre en prose', and Alison Stones, author of 'Manuscripts Illuminated in France: Gothic Manuscripts 1260-1320'. In its emphasis on illustration, this book complements the volumes of the 'Alexander Redivivus series' and offers new perspectives on the reception of one of the most popular medieval heroes of history and legend. It forms a sequel to Ross?s collected essays and his 'Illustrated Medieval Alexander-Books in Germany and the Netherlands', to the work of the editors in the field of medieval manuscripts, and to the first volume in the 'Manuscripta Illuminata series', on the illustrations of Valerius Maximus in French.

Abstract

In Illuminating Jesus in the Middle Ages, editor Jane Beal and other scholars analyse the reception history of images and ideas about Jesus in medieval cultures (6th–15th c.). They consider representations of Jesus in the liturgy of the medieval church, Psalters and psalm commentaries, bestiaries, the Glossa ordinaria, and Middle English vitae Christi as well as among the English, the Irish, and Europeans, adherents to the cult of the Holy Name, participants in the Feast of Corpus Christi, and medieval contemplatives, including Bede, Theophylact of Ochrid, Saint Francis, Gertrude the Great, Dante, Julian of Norwich, and medieval English and European visionaries, among others. Contributors are Jane Beal, George Hardin Brown, Aaron Canty, Tomás Ó Cathasaigh, Thomas Cattoi, Andrew Galloway, Julia Bolton Holloway, Michael Kuczynski, Rob Lutton, Vittorio Montemaggi, Paul Patterson, Linda Stone, Lesley Sullivan Marcantonio, Larry Swain, Donna Trembinski, Nancy van Deusen, and Barbara Zimbalist.
