, it is important to recognize the varied ways by which groups within and outside of the church construct social worlds and ideological frameworks, often in competition with each other for legitimacy. 4 These conceptual insights require that we give due attention to the power of both narrative and

The Ideology of Burgundy

The Promotion of National Consciousness, 1364-1565


Edited by Jonathan Boulton and Jan Veenstra

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.

Between Evidence and Ideology

Essays on the History of Ancient Israel read at the Joint Meeting of the Society for Old Testament Study and the Oud Testamentisch Werkgezelschap Lincoln, July 2009


Edited by Bob E.J.H. Becking and Lester Grabbe

The historiography of Ancient Israel is much debated. The various approaches are never void of ideology and some reckon more with the available evidence than others. This volume consists of a set of case-studies that reveal the difficulties that arise when trying to write a history as honestly as possible. This implies that both the archaeology of Ancient Palestine - the finds and their interrogation - as well as the Philosophy of History - their models and their implications - are discussed. The outcome is a variety of approaches that inform the reader of current views on the history of Ancient Israel.
