Description

Marriage made women “ambassadors of culture,” as Susan Groag Bell pointed out in an influential article on medieval women book owners some thirty years ago. Our purpose in this session is to look particularly at women as dynastic brides. We focus on the objects that women carried with them as foreign brides, as they married into distant families and dynasties, often mastering new languages and cultural practices.
