Walter de Gruyter, Apr 30, 2013 - Literary Criticism - 315 pages
Authorities in the Middle Ages investigates the definition, establishment, maintenance, and collapse of medieval authority from antiquity to the mid-fifteenth century. The interdisciplinary approach resonates with the multi-faceted field of medieval culture, its social structures, and various forms of communication, including the area of history, legal studies, theology, philosophy, politics, literature, and art history. There is a special emphasis on such exciting but understudied areas as the Balkans, Iceland and the eastern fringes of Scandinavia.
