Synopsis

Recent years have seen an interest in German visual imagery of the sixteenth century studied in relation to its social, religious, and political context. This book shows how the German territorial rulers used visual imagery to further their personal causes and beliefs. The illustrations of the book are placed so they add to the argument being made by the author. Some of the most famous print makers of the sixteenth century such as Dürer and Burgkmaier were employed by protestant princes to advance the protestant cause.
