A peer-reviewed* book series that provides a forum for art-historical and interdisciplinary approaches to how art was conceived, produced, and received across a wide spectrum. It will pay particular attention to the cultural, religious, and political history of the period from 1200-1600 as seen through visual and material culture. It will contain monographs, collected essays on focused topics, text editions (with translation and commentary), and works of reference.
Print volumes are of 90,000-180,000 words (200-400 pages). Volumes will almost invariably contain a substantial number of high quality black-and-white and colour illustrations. Extra colour images, extra datasets, audio and video material, extra text and updatable guides with external links for readers can be included in an enhanced online version of the text.
