This book was released on 2018-02-28 with total page 320 pages. Book excerpt: It is often assumed that those outside of academia know very little about the Middle Ages. But the truth is not so simple. Non-specialists in fact learn a great deal from the myriad medievalisms - post-medieval imaginings of the medieval world - that pervade our everyday culture. These, like Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones, offer compelling, if not necessarily accurate, visions of the medieval world. And more, they have an impact on the popular imagination, particularly since there are new medievalisms constantly being developed, synthesised and remade. But what does the public really know? How do the conflicting medievalisms they consume contribute to their knowledge? And why is this important? In this book, the first evidence-based exploration of the wider public's understanding of the Middle Ages, Paul B. Sturtevant adapts sociological methods to answer these important questions. Based on extensive focus groups, the book details the ways - both formal and informal - that people learn about the medieval past and the many other ways that this informs, and even distorts, our present. In the process, Sturtevant also sheds light, in more general terms, onto the ways non-specialists learn about the past, and why understanding this is so important. The Middle Ages in Popular Imagination will be of interest to anyone working on medieval studies, medievalism, memory studies, medieval film studies, informal learning or public history.

Book excerpt: This is a truly paradigm-shifting study that reads a key text in Latin Humanist studies as the culmination, rather than an early example, of a tradition in university drama. It persuasively argues against the common assumption that there was no "drama" in the medieval universities until the syllabus was influenced by humanist ideas, and posits a new way of reading the performative dimensions of fourteenth and fifteenth-century university education in, for example, Ciceronian tuition on epistolary delivery. David Bevington calls it "an impressively learned discussion" and commends the sophistication of its use of performativity theory.

This book was released on 2017-03-02 with total page 432 pages. Book excerpt: Drawing on broad research, this study explores the different social and theatrical masking activities in England during the Middle Ages and the early 16th century. The authors present a coherent explanation of the many functions of masking, emphasizing the important links among festive practice, specialized ceremonial, and drama. They elucidate the intellectual, moral and social contexts for masking, and they examine the purposes and rewards for participants in the activity. The authors' insight into the masking games and performances of England's medieval and early Tudor periods illuminates many aspects of the thinking and culture of the times: issues of identity and community; performance and role-play; conceptions of the psyche and of the individual's position in social and spiritual structures. Masks and Masking in Medieval and Early Tudor England presents a broad overview of masking practices, demonstrating how active and prominent an element of medieval and pre-modern culture masking was. It has obvious interest for drama and literature critics of the medieval and early modern periods; but is also useful for historians of culture, theatre and anthropology. Through its analysis of masked play this study engages both with the history of theatre and performance, and with broader cultural and historical questions of social organization, identity and the self, the performance of power, and shifting spiritual understanding.

This book was released on 2012-05-29 with total page 930 pages. Book excerpt: Older research on the premodern world limited its focus on the Church, the court, and, more recently, on urban space. The present volume invites readers to consider the meaning of rural space, both in light of ecocritical readings and social-historical approaches. While previous scholars examined the figure of the peasant in the premodern world, the current volume combines a large number of specialized studies that investigate how the natural environment and the appearance of members of the rural population interacted with the world of the court and of the city. The experience in rural space was important already for writers and artists in the premodern era, as the large variety of scholarly approaches indicates. The present volume signals how much the surprisingly close interaction between members of the aristocratic and of the peasant class determined many literary and art-historical works. In a surprisingly large number of cases we can even discover elements of utopia hidden in rural space. We also observe how much the rural world was a significant element already in early-medieval mentality. Moreover, as many authors point out, the impact of natural forces on premodern society was tremendous, if not catastrophic.

This book was released on 2018-01-06 with total page 485 pages. Book excerpt: Books 1-5 in National Bestselling Author Angelique Armae's Bestselling Shifters of Dundaire Series. Welcome to Dundaire, Scotland, a magickal city that doesn't appear on any map, where kilt-wearing, immortal Highlanders are plentiful, and where romance and danger brew daily... DARK WOLF 1 - When Highland wolf Callen MacHendrie catches intern Miranda Kendrick stealing his prized sword, the term wild romp takes on a whole new meaning. CHRISTMAS WOLF 2 - When Highland wolf Rhys MacGregor goes in search of the perfect tree-topper for Wolfsden Keep's eighteen-foot-tall tree for the pack's Christmas Eve ball, he ends up rescuing a cat who turns out to be more than he ever imagined. VIKING WOLF 3 - A beautiful sin-eater falls for an immortal Viking cursed with a beastly wolf entombed in his heart... Leila MacHendrie has always dreamt of finding the perfect fairytale hero. Which in her case means a guy who doesn't attract curses, dark auras or the worst the full moon has to offer. Then she met the immortal Vidar von Hess. A man who is everything Leila doesn't want. For starters, he's a Viking, not a Scot. He doesn't wear a kilt, detests them to the point of calling them skirts. And he's an immortal wolf, when all she desires is your very-mortal-guy-next-door type. Plus, there's that little matter of the aura that keeps pulling from Vidar's body, tempting the sin-eater in her soul. Being a living, breathing Pandora's box isn't easy. Especially when that box contains the key to thawing Vidar's frozen heart. But breaking the man's curse means unleashing a centuries-old evil capable of killing them both. And being the untrained sin-eater that she is, Leila knows this is one love match that just might spell disaster for all involved. Too bad she finds the tempting Vidar so irresistibly sexy. HIGHLAND WOLF 4 - Bane MacHendrie is Scotland's most powerful alpha. He's also the Highland's most selfless wolf, having spent a thousand years sacrificing his own needs for the sake of his pack, his sons, and the goddess who owns his heart. But when an old enemy rises from the dead and challenges Bane for the woman they once both fought over, Bane must choose between love and honor. And being the noble beast that he is, his heart might just lose out for all eternity… RETURN OF THE WOLF 5 - For 500 years, Conall MacHendrie has lived as a ghost. To regain his body, all he has to do is forgive a witch of the debt she owes him. Too bad time hasn’t lessened his desire to collect that one night of passion with her. Warning: Contains a happy-go-lucky castle, a sexy Highland immortal who can’t keep his kilt on, and a feisty witch who’s the perfect match for Dundaire’s scorching hot Scot.

(2018–19)—the first major exhibition on the art of this highly influential culture at the crossroads of the eastern and western worlds. Building on the pioneering work of those who first established Armenian studies in America, these essays by a new generation of scholars address Armenia’s roles in facilitating exchange with the Mongol, Ottoman, and Persian empires to the East and with Byzantium and European Crusader states to the West. Contributors explore the effects of this tension in the history of Armenian art and how those histories persist into the present, as Armenia continues to grapple with the legacy of genocide and counters new threats to its sovereignty, integrity, and culture.

Book excerpt: Broadly defined, urban planning today is a process one might describe as half design and half social engineering. It considers not only the aesthetic and visual product, but also the economic, political, and social implications, as well as the environmental impact. This collection of essays explores the question of whether this sort of multifaceted planning took place in the Middle Ages, and how it manifested itself outside of the monastic realm. Bringing together the monastic historian and archaeologist, with scholars of art and architecture, this volume expands our comprehension of how those in roles of authority saw the planning process and implemented their plans to structure a particular outcome. The examination of architectural complexes, literary sources, commercial legers, and political records highlights the multiple avenues for viewing the growing awareness of the social potential of an urban environment.
