Summary
This volume of 'Intersections: Interdisciplinary Studies in Early Modern Culture', consists of essays that pose fundamental questions about the relation between verbal and visual hermeneutics, especially as relates to biblical culture. Exegesis, as theologians and historians of art, religion, and literature, have come increasingly to acknowledge, was neither solely textual nor aniconic; on the contrary, following from Scripture itself, which is replete with verbal images and rhetorical figures, exegesis has traditionally utilized visual devices of all kinds. In turn, visual exegesis, since it concerns the most authoritative of texts, supplied a template for the interpretation of other kinds of significant text by means of images.

Sensation was both central to the doctrinal disputes of the Reformation and critical in shaping new or reformed devotional practices. Blood, Sweat and Tears Edited by Manfred Horstmanshoff, Helen King, and Claus Zittel Drawing on the methods of a wide range of academic disciplines, this volume shifts the focus of the history of the body, exploring the many different ways in which its physiology and its fluids were understood in pre-modern European thought. Translations of the Sublime Edited by Caroline van Eck, Stijn Bussels, Maarten Delbeke and Jürgen Pieters The present volume is a first attempt to chart the early modern translations of Peri hupsous, both in the literal sense of the history of its dissemination by means of editions, versions and translations in Latin and vernacular languages, but also in the figurative sense of its uses and The Turn of the Soul Edited by Lieke Stelling, Harald Hendrix and Todd Richardson Focusing on conversion as one of early modern Europe's most pressing issues, the present book offers a comprehensive reading of artistic and literary ways in which spiritual transformations and exchanges of religious identities were given meaning. Foundation, Dedication and Consecration in Early Modern Europe Edited by Maarten Delbeke & Minou Schraven Bringing together contributions from art history, architectural history, historiography and history of law, this volume is the first comprehensive exploration of the manifold meanings of foundation, dedication and consecration rituals and narratives in early modern culture
