Medieval images and their content, intentions, and functions regularly
followed specific strategies, rituals and symbols of communication. This
is true for religious as well as for secular images. One can recognize
these strategies and rituals through analyzing the patterns that occur in
the varieties of image construction, image space, image messages, and
their perception. The book contains contributions by international
specialists whose research interests concentrate on these patterns, the
rituals associated with them and the influences of these phenomena on the
daily life of the image audience.

Gerhard Jaritz is professor of Medieval Studies at Central European
University (Budapest) and senior research fellow at the Austrian Academy
of Sciences.
