George Villiers, erster Herzog von Buckingham, war als Vertrauter und Günstling gleich zweier englischer Könige – James’ I. und seines Sohnes Charles’ I. – politisch so einflussreich und umstritten wie im Europa des beginnenden 17. Jahrhunderts sonst vielleicht nur Kardinal Richelieu. Peter Paul Rubens und Anthonis van Dyck erhielten die Aufträge zu einer Folge von Portraits, mit welchen der Herzog dieser Wahrnehmung ein selbstgeschaffenes Bild seiner Person entgegenzusetzen suchte. Mit diesem Band nimmt die Autorin erstmals eine zusammenhängende Betrachtung der intensiven Sammler- und Auftraggeberschaft Buckinghams vor, welche die Kunstpolitik des Hofes maßgeblich beeinflussen und für eine Neubewertung der Malerei und visuellen Kultur im frühneuzeitlichen England verantwortlich zeichnen sollte.

In Christianity, the body is a potentially transformative vehicle, and the writings of Hadewijch of Brabant, a thirteenth-century beguine, engage with this tradition in ways both singular to her mysticism and indicative of her theological milieu. This study links the embodied poetics of Hadewijch's visions and letters to the work of such mystics and visionaries as Julian of Norwich, Hildegard of Bingen, and Marguerite of Oingt. It introduces new criteria for re-assessing the style, language, interpretative practices, forms of literacy, and uses of textuality in women's mystical texts.

Chaucer used the dream device to engage with the work of French and Italian authors and to explore the philosophical content of their poetry. His four dream visions therefore represent an important conduit through which the influence of European writers was received into English, enabling a profound transition in the way in which the self was conceptualized in medieval courtly literature.
