Rex Doctus - Rex Augustus. Image and representation of a monarch on the court of king Matthias Corvinus
Languages of publication
The article focuses on a selection of codices, i.e.Codex Averulinus, Codex Cortesius, Codex Didymus and Codex Hieronymus, illuminated in Florence, Italy during the last years of King Mathias Corvinus' reign. It puts them into a context with literary and artistic monuments of humanistic court culture, known for intensive activities in building and decorative enterprises, motivated by the King's political and legitimizing needs for representation. And, of course, it also analyses the specific role of the discussed medium in these relations.
