Continental Law and Early Modern Visual Culture (Renaissance Society of America 2021 sponsored session)
A Session at the Renaissance Society of America's Annual Meeting, Dublin, Ireland, 7-10 April 2021
This session aims to foster conversation about the relationship between Continental law (civil, canon, or Roman) and early modern visual culture. Chaired by Dr. Valérie Hayaert, it specifically probes how images of justice were adapted to conform to local custom in order to retain their effectiveness. However, any topic that addresses early modern European law and visual culture (including but not limited to painting, sculpture, book illustration, and public murals) is welcome and will be considered for inclusion on the panel.

- Paper abstract (150-word max)
