Aspects of Power and Authority in the Middle Ages (review)

Aspects of Power and Authority in the Middle Ages (review) Book Reviews Aspects of Power and Authority in the Middle Ages. Edited by Brenda Bolton and Christine Meek. International Medieval Research, 14. Turnhout: Brepols, 2007. Pp. xii + 354; 29 illustrations. EUR 70. The theme of the 2003 Leeds International Medieval Congress was "Power and Authority." This volume gathers papers from that congress, supplemented by (unidentified) commissioned articles. Eighteen papers are grouped under three headings. "Image-making" includes two on image making and the specific problems of authority faced by conquerors--Jean Dunbabin on Charles of Anjou in the Regno, Chris Dennis on Cnut and William I in England. Gale Owen-Crocker writes on dress and authority in the Bayeux tapestry; Claudia Bolgia on ostentation, power, and family competition expressed in the Aracoeli chapels in Rome; and Marie-Thérèse Champagne on papal claims to authority in twelfth-century Rome, involving the Old Testament and Jewish Temple relics. "Informal Influence" begins with three essays on queens: Ana Maria Rodrigues on late medieval Portugal and Patricia Dark on Matilda of Boulogne in twelfth-century England (both on queens consort) and Bethany Aram on late medieval Castile (on queens regnant). Two essays consider clerics: Walter Ysebaert on episcopal and elite clerical networks in late twelfth-century northern France http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JEGP, Journal of English and Germanic Philology University of Illinois Press
