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.

Taking on nothing less than the formation of modern genders and sexualities, Thomas A. King develops a history of the political and performative struggles that produced both normative and queer masculinities in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The result is a major contribution to gender studies, gay studies, and theater and performance history. The Gendering of Men, 1600?1750 traces the transition from a society based on alliance, which had subordinated all men, women, and boys to higher ranked males, to one founded in sexuality, through which men have embodied their claims to personal and political privacy. King proposes that the male body is a performative production marking men's resistance to their subjection within patriarchy and sovereignty. Emphasizing that categories of gender must come under historical analysis, The Gendering of Men explores men's particpation in an ongoing struggle for access to a universal manliness transcending other biological and social differentials. This is volume one of two projected volumes.

aspirations, the rise of western monasticism was the most note worthy event of the early centuries. The importance of monasteries cannot be overstressed as sources of spirituality, learning and auto nomy in the intensely masculinized, militarized feudal period. Drawing their members from the highest levels of society, women's monasteries provided an outlet for the energy and ambition of strong-willed women, as well as positions of considerable authority. Even from periods relatively inhospitable to learning of all kinds, the memory has been preserved of a good number of women of education. Their often considerable achievements and influence, however, generally lie outside even an expanded definition of philo sophy. Among the most notable foremothers of this early period were several whose efforts signal the possibility of later philosophical work. Radegund, in the sixth century, established one of the first Frankish convents, thereby laying the foundations for women's spiritual and intellectual development. From these beginnings, women's monasteries increased rapidly in both number and in fluence both on the continent and in Anglo-Saxon England. Hilda (d. 680) is well known as the powerful abbsess of the double monastery of Whitby. She was eager for knowledge, and five Eng lish bishops were educated under her tutelage. She is also accounted the patron of Caedmon, the first Anglo-Saxon poet of religious verse. The Anglo-Saxon nun Lioba was versed in the liberal arts as well as Scripture and canon law.

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.
