Title Lepanto and beyond : images of religious alterity from Genoa and the Christian Mediterranean / edited by Laura Stagno, Borja Franco Llopis
Published Leuven : Leuven University Press, [2021]


Description 1 online resource
Summary The Battle of Lepanto, celebrated as the greatest triumph of Christendom over its Ottoman enemy, was soon transformed into a powerful myth through a vast media campaign. Lepanto ? or rather, the varied storytelling and the many visual representations that contributed to shape the perception of the battle in Christian Europe ? is the main focus of this book. In a broader perspective, 'Lepanto and Beyond' also gathers reflections on the construction of religious alterity and offers analyses of specific case studies taken from different fields, investigating the figure of the Muslim captive in reality, artistic depiction, and literature. With different themes related to the Republic of Genoa, the authors also aim to redress a perceived imbalance and to restore the important role of the Genoese in the general scholarly discussion on Lepanto and its images
