Court Cultures of the Middle Ages and Renaissance is a peer-reviewed series focused on the inter-
and multi-disciplinary cultural output of medieval and Renaissance court culture on an international
scale. The series invites proposals for single- and multi-authored monographs, edited collections
and editions of early works relating to the court.
Prospective authors are encouraged to submit proposals which highlight the central importance of the court
to medieval and Renaissance culture, including projects that explore the life and/or works of writers, artists,
historiographers, soldiers, composers, diplomats and courtiers, in the East as well as the West. Other areas of
particular interest are courtly ritual (e.g. chivalric code, ceremonies, spectacle) and literary and artistic
representations of the court. The series will also explore the role of the court in shaping national,
religious and political identities, as well as its function as an interface between different cultures.
Each proposal will be vetted by the specialists on the series editorial board and will undergo a comprehensive peer-review process.
