Description

This session honors the multi-disciplinary research of a distinguished scholar, Thomas M. Izbicki. The papers were selected to expand contemporary, on-going, studies of topics related to power, empire, and political thought in the Middle Ages and early-sixteenth century. The first two papers address new research on the subject of empire in the late Middle Ages. The third paper returns to a long-standing concern of Dr. Izbicki regarding the writings of Nicholas of Cusa and the influence of Cusa's later sermons in the late court cultures of the fifteenth- and sixteenth-centuries. As always, the society of POLITICAS welcomes scholars who have an interest in modern political thought, art history, literature, and politics.
