Moveable Beasts: The Manifold Implications of Early Germanic Animal Imagery

Stephen O. Glosecki

in Nona C. Flores, ed., Animals in the Middle Ages: A Book of Essays (Garland Medieval Casebooks, 13), New York: Garland, 1996

"...poses the key question about visual images of animals during the Middle Ages: does the image mean something, or is it 'just for pretty'? Furthermore, if we believe the image does signify something beyond its obvious literal representation, which of the many possible meanings do we choose? And finally, how does the meaning change - that is, 'move,' in the author's own words - as its cultural context shifts?" - Flores, Introduction
