Description - The Empress Theophano by Adelbert Davids

The Byzantine princess Theophano, who came to the West in 972 to marry the Ottonian emperor Otto II, died as empress of the Ottonian empire in Nijmegen in 991. This commemorative volume of essays, linked to a conference marking the 1000 year anniversary of her death, helps place Theophano in a broad cultural and historical context. The historical, intellectual and artistic background of her age are described by a group of leading early medievalists, with essays on her education, her surroundings, and on the image of noble women in the Middle Ages.
