Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an over all view on the dedicatory picture to fulfill a heuristic task: it is to enable better understanding of the structure of the book surrender, which he exposes much as ritual and symbolic action. The portrait of dedicated author presents the discussion of the pictorial parallel directly associated to the text of dedication letter and already connected to the same material. Dedication scenes are important for the understanding the extent dedication writings of great importance, as they fulfilled parallel functions. The ritual request for acceptance is not to be understood literally, in the sense that the dedicatee now actually had to decide first whether he would accept the work or not. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: author portrait; ceremonial handover book; dedication letter; dedication scenes; ritual constitution
