7. Portraicts des SS. Vertus de la Vierge contemplées par feue S. A. S. M. Isabelle Clere Eugenie Infante d’Espagne

A facsimile edition with critical introduction by Cordula van Wyhe 

2002, XLII-172-xii p., 44 ill., ISBN 978-0-85261-768-7 

The devotional emblem book by Jean Terrier, a lawyer and councillor from the Habsburg-dominated Franche-Comté, published in 1635, was conceived from the outset to be more than an aid to pious meditation. It was primarily meant as a political statement. Terrier’s emblem book is a visualisation of the thirty-four biblical synonyms of the Litany of the Virgin. Each image depicts the Infanta Isabella, regent of the Habsburg Netherlands from 1599-1633, accompanied by her ladies-in-waiting in adoration of the Virgin’s virtues. Terrier’s work is a unique of how royal encomium mingled with the genre of a devotional emblem book. The extensive introduction and annotations to this facsimile edition reveal the complex political motives behind its production and their formulation through ideal representation of the Infanta and her court ladies in each emblem. This publication will be of interest both to scholars of emblem literature, and to students of the Habsburg Netherlands in general, and the role of women in European court in particular. Includes: Translation of the Lemma and Subscriptio of each Emblem; Professions of Young Women affiliated to the Court into Convents of Reformed Orders. Indexes of Motifs, Themes, and Names and Places.

15. Otto Vaenius and his Emblem Books

Volume edited by Simon McKeown 

2012, XXXVI-316 p., 186 ill., ISBN 978-0-852-61932-2 

Otto Vaenius (1556-1629) was one of the outstanding cultural figures of the Low Countries at the end of the sixteenth and beginning of the seventeenth centuries. Admired as an erudite painter and writer who moved in intellectually elite circles, Vaenius is known to posterity as Peter Paul Rubens’s most influential teacher. He is also esteemed by scholars of the emblem as perhaps the most inventive and influential practitioner of the form in the seventeenth century and his triumvirate of books, the Emblemata Horatiana (1607), Amorum Emblemata (1608) and Amoris Divini Emblemata(1615) inspired a host of imitations and adaptations in both print and wider material culture. This collection of essays seeks to approach Vaenius’s work in the bimedial sphere from a more pan-optic perspective than has been traditional hitherto, giving full consideration to his canonical emblem books, but exploring, too, his experiments with word and image in a range of less familiar works. These publications, which may be justly described as ‘para-emblematic’, include Vaenius’s hagiographical life of Thomas Aquinas, his graphic series on a medieval Spanish legend, a compendium of medallic reverses, and a mysterious treatise on predestination and free will. Consequently, this volume, the first in English or any other language to be devoted to Vaenius’s wider publishing career, considerably broadens the contextual framework within which this centrally important writer and artist should be read and understood.

17: The Art of Persuasion: Emblems and Propaganda

Edited by Christine McCall Probes and Sabine Mödersheim 

2014, XIV-210p., 99 ill, ISBN 978-0-852-61940-7 

Examining emblems of propaganda from Renaissance texts and images to 20th and 21st century mass media and slogans related to political ideologies, this collection brings together innovative interdisciplinary studies by scholars from Europe and North America. Providing new dimensions to the scholarly discussion on the interplay between aesthetic forms and persuasion, the essays demonstrate how propaganda, the dissemination or promotion of an idea or practice, promulgates zealously knowledge and principles, often transculturally and across generations. Applying methodologies such as comparative analysis, semiotics, rhetorical criticism, reception theory, and visual anthropology, The Art of Persuasion: Emblems and Propaganda will be of interest to students and scholars of history, art history, the history of the book, political thought, communication, the art of war, and religion.
