In His Image and Likeness: Political Iconography and Religious Change in Regensburg, 1500-1600

Cover
Cornell University Press, 1990 - 279 Seiten

In this ground-breaking book, Zapalac brings together the methods of social, intellectual, and art history in showing how the Protestant Reformation altered the terms of political discourse in a German free imperial city. In Zapalac's view, visual and verbal images, many of them having their origins in conceptions of the sacred, were more central to sixteenth-century political thought within the city walls than was the rationalized language of law. Drawing on a wealth of sources, she traces the impact of religious change on the languages of judgment and authority used in the city of Regensburg, and thereby sheds light on the nature of political thought in early modern Germany.
