Thoroughly interdisciplinary in approach, this volume examines how the exercising of power, the distribution of justice, and transgression against the law were portrayed in both textual and pictorial terms in works produced and circulated in medieval French manuscripts and early printed books. The essays analyse a wide variety of texts to offer new insights into the ways in which the language and imagery of politics and justice permeated medieval French culture.
