Medieval manuscript culture organizes reading as a visual experience. Early fifteenth-century Paris saw a proliferation of luxury manuscripts whose illuminations situate the reader as spectator. Christine de Pizan understood this visual aspect of medieval texts and exploited it throughout her work. The Epistre Othea (or Letter of Othea, dated about 1400) exemplifies the visual potential of medieval literature to enhance the reading experience. Myth, Montage, and Visuality in Late Medieval Manuscript Culture, as a study of this visuality, draws extensively on film theory, which offers critical categories for the structures of spectatorship. The authors argue that premodern and postmodern cultures share a predilection for the cinematic arrangement of knowledge in a montage format. Their book explores the competing models for the study of visual cultures represented by the work of Erwin Panofsky and Aby Warburg and argues that the latter's Mnemosyne offers the most productive method for analyzing the Epistre Othea. Marilynn Desmond is Professor of English, Binghamton University. Pamela Sheingorn is Professor of History, Medieval Studies, and Theatre, Graduate Center, the City University of New York.

This carefully researched monograph is a historical investigation of the illustrated Aratea astronomical manuscript and its many interpretations over the centuries. Aratus' 270 B.C.E. Greek poem describing the constellations and astrological phenomena was translated and copied over 800 years into illuminated manuscripts that preserved and illustrated these ancient stories about the constellations. The Aratea survives in its entirety due to multiple translations from Greek to Latin and even to Arabic, with many illuminated versions being commissioned over the ages. The survey encompasses four interrelated disciplines: history of literature, history of myth, history of science, and history of art. Aratea manuscripts by their nature are a meeting place of these distinct branches, and the culling of information from historical literature and from the manuscripts themselves focuses on a wider, holistic view; a narrow approach could not provide a proper prospective. What is most essential to know about this work is that because of its successive incarnations it has survived and been reinterpreted through the centuries, which speaks to its importance in all of these disciplines. This book brings a better understanding of the history, changes and transmission of the original astronomical Phaenomena poem. Historians, art historians, astronomy lovers, and historians of astronomy will learn more specialized details concerning the Aratea and how the tradition survived from the Middle Ages. It is a credit to the poetry of Aratus and the later interpreters of the text that its pagan aspects were not edited nor removed, but respected and maintained in the exact same form despite the fact that all sixty Aratea manuscripts mentioned in this study were produced under the rule of Christianity.

â oeIt is difficult to assess an explanation of a belief, or a belief system in words, â Tobienne begins, â oeand harder still to assign signification to such inexplicable conviction[s].â This book addresses the often blurred line[s] between magic, religion, and science within Spanish literature and history, and is divided into three parts. The first section offers a brief overview of Spanish history from the fifth century through the seventh century and looks at the divide between â oewhiteâ and â oeblackâ magic. White magic is often attributed to a divine agency, whereas black magic is the result of dark or demonic influences. The second part of the book looks at Alfonso X (also known as el Sabio, or â oethe Wiseâ ) and his Las Siete Partidas and Lapidario, and the role of how magic was received in the Spanish university system and translating centers and spaces within Alfonsoâ (TM)s court. The final section examines two poems: Auto de Los Reyes Magos and the Vida de Santa MarÃ-a Egipciaca in terms of the white magic concepts of mirabilia and miracula. Collectively, these poems, alongside Bishop Isidore of Sevilleâ (TM)s Etymologiae, contribute to the discourse of a Medieval Spain and its rich, intellectual history and moreover, provide a launching pad into this discussion regarding a small window of quasi-tolerance in Spain amidst Muslims, Jews, and Christians.

Critical edition of the earliest known astrological autobiography The present book reveals the riches of the earliest known astrological autobiography, authored by Henry Bate of Mechelen (1246–after 1310). Exploiting all resources of contemporary astrological science, Bate conducts in his Nativitas a profound self-analysis, revealing the peculiarities of his character and personality at a crucial moment of his life (1280). The result is an extraordinarily detailed and penetrating attempt to decode the fate of one’s own life and its idiosyncrasies. The Astrological Autobiography of a Medieval Philosopher offers the first critical edition of Bate’s Nativitas. An extensive introduction presents Bate’s life and work and sheds new light on the reception and use of Greek, Latin, Arabic, and Hebrew texts among scholars in Paris at the end of the 13th century. The book thus provides a major new resource for scholars working on medieval science, autobiography, and notions of personhood and individuality.
