Using the great south-Italian monastery of San Vincenzo al
Volturno, one of the best preserved monasteries of the earliest
Middle Ages, as a case-study and heuristic paradigm, John Mitchell
has engaged in a wide-ranging examination of the ways in which
visual culture was developed and deployed by ambitious states and
institutions in early medieval Europe. The present volume includes
studies on the cultural dynamics of Italy and its contribution to
the visual complexion of Europe in the period, as well as essays on
many aspects of the artistic culture of San Vincenzo, including a
series of papers on the display of script in the physical fabric of
the monastery and the prominent role it played in its self-image.
