Title: Women of Distinction. Margaret of York / Margaret of Austria
Price: Not Available
ISBN: 2503519172
Description: edited by Dagmar Eichberger. Turnhout: Brepols, 2005. 31cm., hardcover, 366pp. more than 150 illus., most in color. This lavishly illustrated handbook was conceived to accompany an international exhibition organised by the city of Mechelen (Malines) in 2005. Both the exhibition and the catalogue highlight an important aspect of Burgundian culture: the impact of noble women on life at the court and in the city around 1500. The sixteen essays which introduce the five distinct catalogue sections were written by leading scholars from different disciplines such as Wim Blockmans, Krista De Jonge, Dagmar Eichberger, Marie-Madeleine Fontaine, Anne-Marie Legaré, Philippe Lorentz and Walter Prevenier. This book provides much more than a biographical account of two "women of distinction", but regards their lives as paradigmatic for upper-class women of that time. The study takes a fresh look at the transition from the late Middle Ages to the early modern period and offers the reader essential information as well as new insights into matters of gender and female concern. (Margaret of York 1446-1503, Margaret of Austria 1480-1530)
