About this item

Offering a wealth of color historical art, illustrations, and photos of sculptures and tapestries, this study for scholars and advanced students unites contributors in medieval literature, art history, medieval studies, and religious studies to explore the representation of dogs and associated symbolism in the early modern period. Sections cover literal and literary dogs, symbols and dogs, love and dogs, death and dogs, and good dogs and bad dogs in religious symbolism. Some specific subjects include dogs in medieval Egyptian Sufi literature, bestiaries and the Bayeaux embroidery, the iconography of footrests on tomb monuments, dogs in Japanese handscrolls, and the dogs of God and the hounds of Hell in the later Middle Ages.
