13th Oct 200517:30AcademicHistory of the Book SeminarProfessor Brian Cummings (Sussex): 'Images in Books: Foxe Eikonoklastes'. The second edition of John Foxe's Actes and Monuments in 1570 is one of the most extravagant books of the sixteenth century. In every way it was designed to outdo other books on the market, and even its own first edition of 1563. Among other drastic enlargements, it contains more than double the number of images. What place do the images have in the book? How does image relate to text? This paper considers a particular sub-set of images in the 1570 edition in order to investigate further the controversy over images in late medieval and early modern England, and the relationship of images to textuality. In the process it also considers a topic crucial to both sides of this controversy, the construction of sainthood (Allhusen Room).
