City and Spectacle in Medieval Europe City and Spectacle in Medieval Europe Barbara A. Hanawalt and Kathryn L. Reyerson, Editors 1994 Spring
Drawing examples from Spain, England, France, Italy, and the Netherlands, most of them in the fifteenth century, the contributors explore the uses of ceremony as statements of political power, as pleas for divine intercession, and as expressions of popular culture. Their essays show us spectacles meant to confirm events such as victories, the signing of a city charter, or the coronation of a king. In other circumstances, the spectacle acts as a battleground where a struggle for the control of the metaphors of power is played out between factions within cities or between cities and kings. Still other ceremonies called upon divine spiritual powers in the hope that their intervention might save the urban inhabitants. Contributors; Lorraine Attreed, Brigitte Bedos-Rezak, Elizabeth A. R. Brown, Lawrence McBride Bryant, Maureen Flynn, Barbara A. Hanawalt, Bram Kempers, Sheila Lindenbaum, Ben R. McRee, James Murray, David Nicholas, Gerard Nijsten, Nancy Freeman Regalado, Kathryn L. Reyerson, and Teofilo R. Ruiz.
