Synopsis

Beginning in 1976, with the first issue of the journal ""Studies in Medievalism"", all things medieval and the concept of medievalism became a hot topic in culture studies. ""Medievalism"" examines how different groups, individuals or eras use and shape the image of the Middle Ages, differentiating between historical knowledge of the Middle Ages and what we have made the period out to be. The 14 essays in this book explore the medieval invasion of today's media and consider the various ways - from film and print to websites and video games - that the Middle Ages have been packaged for consumption. Essays encompass diverse theoretical perspectives and are grouped loosely around distinct functions of medievalism, including the exposure of recent social concerns; the use of medieval images in modern political contexts; and the medieval's influence on products of today's popular culture. The legitimization of the study of medievalism and the effect of medievalism on the more traditional subject of medieval studies is also discussed.
