Editorial Reviews


'... a felicitous and rich blend of traditional approaches (textual exegesis and stylistic analysis) with gender studies and issues of audience, meaning, ritual and reception... Roma Felix is an important collection of papers, with a coherence which belies their varied origin.' The Art Newspaper '... the editors have successfully accomplished a demanding enterprise, producing a readable, richly informative, and thought-provoking volume, which will be invaluable for scholars and students alike, and will be of interest to everyone who is fascinated by both the multifaceted and multilayered culture of medieval Rome, and its impact on medieval Europe.' H-Italy 'Roma Felix is a handsomely presented and rewarding volume. ... The papers add up to a fascinating exploration of Rome the place and Rome the idea.' Journal of Medieval Archaeology '... at once scrupulously edited and spendidly produced... The production values of the volume are high. the numerous illustrations (over sixty, including musical notation for Dyer's piece) are printed on the most relevant page, as are the sometimes lengthy footnotes. Altogether it is a fine addition to the substantial series of which it is part.' Church History 'The book is unusually coherent, with individual contributions of uniformly high quality... The editors have presented a fine and valuable book. If I occasionally put a question mark in the margin, that is merely a tribute to how engaging the papers are, and how lively is the ongoing discussion of Rome itself and of its reception.' Thomas F.X. Noble, University of Notre Dame, IN, in English Historical Review
