Editorial: Boydell & Brewer Ltd
Año de publicación: 2014
Condición del libro: Brand new
Aspects of the Bayeux Tapestry (in fact an embroidered hanging) have always remained mysterious, despite much scholarly investigation, not least its design and patron. Here, in the first full-length interdisciplinary approach to t he subject, the authors (an art historian and a historian) consider these and other issues. Rejecting the prevalent view that it was commissioned by Odo, the bishop of Bayeux and half-brother of William the Conqueror, or by some o ther comparable patron, they bring new evidence to bear on the question of its relationship to the abbey of St Augustine's, Canterbury. From the study of art-historical, archeological, literary, historical and documentary material s, they conclude that the monks of St Augustine's designed the hanging for display in their abbey church to tell their own story of how England was invaded and conquered in 1066. Elizabeth Carson Pastan is a Professor o f Art History at Emory University; Stephen D. White is Asa G. Candler Professor of Medieval History ( emeritus ), Emory University, and an Honorary Professor of Mediaeval History at the University of St Andrews. N° de ref. de la librería 9573
