Art in the lives of ordinary Romans


Okładka książki: Art in the lives of ordinary Romans
John R. Clarke: Art in the lives of ordinary Romans: Visual representation and non-elite viewers in Italy, 100 B.C. – A.D. 315. University of California Press 2003.- ISBN 0520219767

This splendidly illustrated book brings to life the ancient Romans whom modern scholarship has largely ignored: slaves, ex-slaves, foreigners, and the freeborn working poor. Though they had no access to the upper echelons of society, ordinary Romans enlivened their world with all manner of artworks.

The Dress of the People


Okładka książki: The Dress of the People
John Styles: The Dress of the People: Everyday Fashion in Eighteenth-Century England. Yale University Press 2008. – ISBN 9780300121193

John Styles reveals that ownership of new fabrics and new fashions was not confined to the rich but extended far down the social scale to the small farmers, day laborers, and petty tradespeople who formed a majority of the population. The author focuses on the clothes ordinary people wore, the ways they acquired them, and the meanings they attached to them, shedding new light on all types of attire and the occasions on which they were worn.

The Book of Memory: A Study of Memory in Medieval Culture


Okładka książki: The Book of Memory
Mary Carruthers: The Book of Memory: A Study of Memory in Medieval Culture. Cambridge University Press 2008. - ISBN 9780521716314

Mary Carruthers’s classic study of the training and uses of memory for a variety of purposes in European cultures during the Middle Ages has fundamentally changed the way scholars understand medieval culture. The new edition will reignite the debate on memory in medieval studies and, like the first, will be essential reading for scholars of history, music, the arts and literature, as well as those interested in issues of orality and literacy (anthropology), in the working and design of memory (both neuropsychology and artificial memory), and in the disciplines of meditation (religion).
