Overview

Treasure is a broad subject, which can be understood in a number of ways, from the economic to the aesthetic, the personal to the political; for the middle ages, it is both a powerful cultural reality and a metaphor. However, despite its importance, this is the first volume to be devoted to the subject. The articles bring together a variety of critical approaches and themes in different periods and contexts throughout the medieval period, covering subjects such as gender, fashion, patronage, ethnicity, death and burial, piety, display and poetics. ELIZABETH M. TYLER teaches at the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of York. Contributors: DOMINIC JANES, TIMOTHY REUTER, MARTIN CARVER, LESLIE WEBSTER, PAULINE STAFFORD, ELIZABETH M. TYLER, JENNY STRATFORD, NICOLA F. MCDONALD, JOHN CHERRY
