A scholarly examination of the rich cultural legacy of one of the most renowned rulers of medieval Europe, this massive catalogue documents an exhibition of nearly 400 objects associated with the reign of Frederick II (1194-1250) as Holy Roman Emperor and king of Germany, Sicily and Jerusalem, the selection encompassing ceramics, architectural elements, liturgical objects, sculptures, textiles, cameos, coins and other pieces drawn from a host of European museums. Accompanied by fine illustrations of scores of additional works as well as numerous architectural photographs and drawings, more than 70 essays address the international character of Frederick's career while focusing on his influence in Italy, discussing such topics as the symbolic significance of images of Frederick in medieval art, the remarkable flowering of art, literature and science at his Sicilian court, the design and ornamentation of castles and cathedrals in his realm, and the production of religious icons and illuminated manuscripts during his time.
