Abstract

In the series of sessions on medieval and early modern dynasticism organized by the project ‘The Jagiellonians: Dynasty, Memory and Identity in Central Europe’ (University of Oxford), we aim to ask afresh what royal and princely dynasty was at the time. Our sessions seek to put dynasty under the spotlight, as a category of analysis in its own right, and as a major organising political principle in the pre-modern world. This panel focuses on Central and Eastern Europe and considers ideological, discursive, and political constructions of dynasty in the high and late Middle Ages, as well as the role of material culture in that process.
