This collection attempts to set preeminent German Renaissance artist Albrecht DÜrer (1471-1528) in the cultural context of the early sixteenth century. It offers analyses of and suggests relationships between DÜrer's work and aspects of his culture that have not received much attention in previous scholarship. These include views of nature and attitudes to collecting, patriotism and morality, witchcraft and the rituals of courtship, the power of visual images and the role of censorship.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The strength of this volume rests in the diversity of approaches taken by the contributors....the individual articles highlight important aspects of DÜrer's work and early modern culture from a wide range of perspectives. The main target of this book might be art historians, but all sixteenth-century scholars will certainly profit from the various insights offered here." Albrecht Classen, German Studies Review

"The book is well produced, scrupulously documented, and has a single select bibliogrpahy." HNA Newsletter

"This is a varied, sophisticated and consistently engaging volume, which adds much to our understanding of Dürer the artist, the man and cultural icon." - H-Net Andrew Morrall, Bard Graduate Center, New York
