The underlying proposition is that religion, and especially monotheism, has been a central element in the legitimization and representations of monarchy in its various forms, at least in the pre-modern period. Some of the 14 essays are from a February 2002 Medieval Studies workshop at the Central European University; others are from earlier meetings of the workshop or were solicited for the anthology. Early Byzantine, Carolingian, Polish, and Khazarian examples are among the topics. Distributed in the US by Books International.
