    Within the burgeoning business of emblem books printed in Europe between the sixteenth and the eighteenth century, emblems of death constitute a pervasive subject that this fine collection of essays written by an international group of scholars explores exhaustively for the first time in a pan-European way, elaborating and reappraising the study by Gisèle Mathieu-Castellani’s Emblèmes de la mort. Le dialogue de l’image et du texte (Paris, A.-G. Nizet, 1988), which focuses mainly on emblems produced in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century France. If emblems of death created in this period are unlikely to present the reader and viewer with new ideas on the subject, it is also true that they, along with Italian imprese, elaborate and express the philosophy and theology that their authors grew up with, converted to, or studied. Within the general categorization that divides emblems of death in those that are inspired by Christian—Catholic and Protestant—notions and beliefs, and those that use humanistic ideals of survival after death through fame, authors of emblems interweaved in their elaborations of this age-old subject politico-ideological, spiritual and historical factors that the contributors of the essays in this collection describe and interpret masterfully for the readers.
