Research into material culture has become one of the most
important fields in medieval and early modern studies. While
past research focused primarily on the objects as such,
present interests have moved to humans and their ties to
things. This volume concentrates on the perception of
medieval and early modern material culture, in particular
exceptional objects that can be seen as „favourite
things“. Contributions lead from theoretical issues to
specific groups of objects, their exclusivity and function
as social markers. The analyses address both religious and
secular space.

Gerhard Jaritz is professor of Medieval
Studies at the Central European University. His research
concentrates on medieval daily life as well as material and
visual culture.

Ingrid Matschinegg is senior research fellow at the
Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Material Culture at
the University of Salzburg. Her fields of interest range
from social to cultural history with an emphasis on
migration history and human-animal studies.
