Barbarians & Heretics: Anti-Greek And Anti-Latin Sentiments In Crusade-Era Chronicles, 1096-1204, Ryan Saputo 2022 University of New Hampshire

Barbarians & Heretics: Anti-Greek And Anti-Latin Sentiments In Crusade-Era Chronicles, 1096-1204, Ryan Saputo

Honors Theses and Capstones

Historians have debated the role of stereotypes and hostile language in the diversion of the Fourth Crusade to Constantinople mostly through the outdated "Clash of Civilizations" lens. This work investigates the role of hostile stereotypes in both Western and Byzantine narrative histories discussing the first four crusades through a deep textual and literary analysis. This work argues that contemporary narrative histories from the first four crusades demonstrate that virulently hostile attitudes abounded in both Byzantine and Western sources, and that these attitudes greatly affected diplomatic and political decision making during Byzantine-Crusader interactions from 1096-1204. This work's close textual examination of …


Odin, Lord Of The Dead: Religious Legitimization For Social And Political Change In Late Iron Age And Early Medieval Scandinavia, Ty Karnitz 2022 University of Central Florida

Odin, Lord Of The Dead: Religious Legitimization For Social And Political Change In Late Iron Age And Early Medieval Scandinavia, Ty Karnitz

Electronic Theses and Dissertations, 2020-

Recently, scholars of pre-Christian religions in Scandinavia have argued against a unified pantheon with Odin at its head. Instead, scholars have argued that religious beliefs in pre-Christian Scandinavia should be understood as a body of interrelated beliefs that varied by region, social class, and environmental setting. Significant cults within pre-Christian Scandinavia include those of Thor, Freyr, Odin, and a cult of the dead. Acknowledging that various religious beliefs coexisted leads to the question of how they interacted with each other. The cult of Odin has often been considered a cult of royalty and elites. Scholars have argued that Odin's various …

Empty Flags And Fallen 'Angeli': Dante And The Imagery Of The Capitol Riot, Kristina Olson 2021 George Mason University

Empty Flags And Fallen 'Angeli': Dante And The Imagery Of The Capitol Riot, Kristina Olson

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

After the mob attack on the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, which disrupted the certification of the 2020 presidential election, several photographs of the insurrectionists have begun to emerge. Jacob Chansley, known as Jake Angeli, was one of the many insurrectionists photographed on the Senate dais after the chamber had been evacuated of all elected officials, who were escorted into safety. Angeli wore a horned, double raccoon-tail helmet, painted his face the colors of the US flag, and carried a spear with the American flag. While the appearance of the Confederate flag born into its halls by the same …

Seven Hundred Years After Dante’S Death. The Imperishable Image Of An Eternal Poet, Matteo Maselli

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

This report provides a summary of the main initiatives that took place in 2021 to celebrate the seventh centenary of Dante’s death (publications, conferences, exhibitions, events of various kinds). The plurality of the episodes recorded demonstrates how the attention paid to Dante is not an exclusive trait of the higher spheres of culture, but is instead well rooted even in non-academic contexts.


From The "Allora" To The "Non Ancora:" Luzi's Essays On Dante, Thomas E. Peterson 2021 University of Georgia

From The "Allora" To The "Non Ancora:" Luzi's Essays On Dante, Thomas E. Peterson

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

In five critical essays on Dante extending from 1945 to 1999 Mario Luzi presents his view of the Divina Commedia as a living work that requires its readers to enter into its internal creative process in order to comprehend its moral and teleological meanings. At the center of the essays is the figure of Dante, identical to the poem’s protagonist, whose absolute identification with the objects of his thought gives rise to a poetry of prophecy, proclamation and testimony rooted in the experience of exile. Dante sees exile as the universal condition of humanity, which presupposes a spiritual struggle and …
