Courtly Encounters

Translating Courtliness and Violence in Early Modern Eurasia

In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries the court was the crucial site where expanding Eurasian states and empires met and made sense of one another. Richly illustrated, Courtly Encounters provides a fresh cross-cultural perspective on early modern Islam, Counter-Reformation Catholicism, Protestantism, and a newly emergent Hindu sphere.

Zitat
A splendid book of felicitous erudition and critical inquiry, which should make the readers think afresh..."Courtly Encounters" does not give a naive picture of cultural assimilation. Nor does it suggest that cultural encounters and transactions should only be located in courtly high culture.

That history defies a single, simple narrative indeed constitutes its richness. This book decants it in full measure.--B. Surendra Rao"The Hindu" (11/27/2012)
