Chapter Summary

This front mater section of the book When Ego Was Imago contains the table of contents, list of plates, list of abbreviations that occur in the book, acknowledgements, and the introduction of the book. The introduction presents an overview of the book, which analyses the conditions for and the implications of twelfth-century individuals; partnering with material signs and images in expressing self and accountability. The application of seals for documentary purposes is not usually considered from the perspective of twelfth-century theology and sign theory. The first part of the book addresses questions concerning this methodology. The second part considers the modalities of seal forms and sealing practices from the early Middle Ages through the first decades of the thirteenth century. The third part considers images and individuals on the basis of two related premises previously explored in the second part.

Keywords: early Middle Ages; material signs; twelfth-century individuals
