The Ideology of Burgundy: The Promotion of National Consciousness, 1364-1565
D'Arcy Jonathan Dacre Boulton, Jan R. Veenstra
Brill, 2006 - History - 300 pages
This book is a collection of eight essays on the ideology of Burgundy, dealing with the body of ideas, images, institutions and narrative fictions produced at the behest of the Valois dukes to create and maintain their incipient domanial state in the period from roughly 1364 to the 1560s. Nation building requires an ideological framework and the successive dukes, their officers and their court intellectuals all contributed to a self-determinative image of Burgundy which became visible in their literature, in their quest for a regal title, in the foundation of the Order of the Golden Fleece and in their propaganda. The essays approach the themes of the collection from the perspective of several disciplines, and together present a well-rounded picture of Burgundian nation-building.Contributors include: D A.J.D. Boulton, Jan Dumolyn, Malte Prietzel, Graeme Small, Robert Stein, Bernhard Sterchi, Jan R. Veenstra, and David J. Wrisley.
