9789004124356: Encyclopedia of Medieval Dress and Textiles of the British Isles, C. 450-1450

The single volume Encyclopedia of Medieval Dress and Textiles of the British Isles c. 450-1450 is a unique work that intends to bring together in 582 signed articles the latest research from across the range of disciplines which contribute to our knowledge of medieval dress and textiles. There has been a long-standing interest in the subject, which has recently manifested itself in a flowering of research and publications, including activities by the editors of the Encyclopedia: the foundation of DISTAFF (Discussion, Interpretation and Study of Textile Arts, Fabrics and Fashion) as an umbrella organization for the presentation of papers at the major medieval congresses in Kalamazoo and Leeds (Netherton and Owen-Crocker); the establishment of the annual journal Medieval Clothing and Textiles (Netherton and Owen-Crocker); the Manchester Medieval Textiles Project (Coatsworth and Owen-Crocker); and the AHRC Lexis of Cloth and Clothing Project (Owen-Crocker and Sylvester). There is a clear need for an interdisciplinary reference work which will introduce readers to various sources of evidence, and give clear information about the most recent discoveries and interpretations and bibliographical guidance to readers. The Encyclopedia of Medieval Dress and Textiles of the British Isles c. 450-1450 contains also over 100 plates and diagrams to illustrate the text. Free sample fascicle available. Also available online as part of Brill's Medieval Reference Library Online. Features - Covers materials, techniques and styles, and their changes. - Focuses on the British Isles, but considers comparative material from elsewhere and includes some illustrations taken from continental manuscripts. - Covers secular, ecclesiastical and military dress, its changes over time and the concept of fashion, surviving examples and the names of individual garments and their parts - Investigates techniques of manufacture, the people who produced the goods and the equipment they used. - Looks at weights and measures, trade, guilds, tools, spinning, weaving and stitches. - Examines the sources, archaeological, documentary and artistic. - Considers non-literary documentary sources in articles on wills and inventories, estate management and the Paston Letters, wardrobe accounts - Looks at the treatment of dress and textiles in poetry: riddles, heroic literature and Romance, and poets: Chaucer, Gower, Lydgate, The Pearl Poet, Charles d'Orleans (Fortune Stabilnes) and King James I of Scotland (The Kingis Quair). - Considers: manuscript illumination, stone and wood carving, brass engraving and stained glass as examples. - Includes alternative titles and spellings of medieval words and articles on the naming of cloths and garments, and on surnames and place names derived from cloth production. - Looks at subjects such as cross-dressing; the origin and significance of liturgical colours; the use and significance of gemstones, amber and pearls; the importance of textiles in funerals; horse equipment, tents, ships and the transport of goods; the role of patronage; civil and ecclesiastical prohibitions and rights; religious morality and political philosophy relating to dress; shopping; ingredients and practice for finishing and laundering cloth; and the use of medieval dress and textiles in the present day for Living History (re-enactment and reconstruction).

About the Author :

Gale R. Owen-Crocker is an Anglo-Saxon specialist who enjoys interdisciplinary research, which uses, for example, archaeological evidence to illuminate Old English literature; and art, archaeology, glosses and text (both Latin and English) to explore the issue of Anglo-Saxon dress. She is the co-founder and co-editor of the international journal Medieval Clothing and Textiles. Her recent books include King Harold II and the Bayeux Tapestry (2005); Dress in Anglo-Saxon England: revised and enlarged edition (2004), The Four Funerals in Beowulf: and the structure of the poem (2000), Medieval Art: recent perspectives (1998) and Anglo-Saxon Texts and Contexts (1998).

Review :

a superb reference work . well-produced color and black-and-white illustrations . an essential work for scholars of medieval British dress and textiles, as well as for students of dress and material culture in general. And, because costume, jewelry, tapestries, and other aspects of clothing, cloth, and textiles are so important in medieval British writing and culture, the Encyclopedia will be just as important for scholars of medieval British literature and history, David Elton Gay, Indiana University, in "Journal of Folklore Research," online review posted on September 17, 2013, http: //www.indiana.edu/ jofr/review.php?id=1392"

..".Recommendation: This is a serious, academic work that is fun to dip into. I have learnt so much by going from one entry to another and ending up in subjects I had not expected or even knew existed. This book should be in any academic library that has an interest in medieval European life (in all its aspects), medieval British history, as well as in the libraries of those working in the field of archaeological textiles. It will also appeal to those involved in medieval re-enactments (Living History groups), and film and theatre groups who wish to increase their knowledge and accuracy."
