Abstract [en]

This session looks at the appropriate display of rank and wealth in Scandinavian and English courtly literature, through textiles, armour, and gift-giving. The objects referenced in these texts allowed the contemporary reader to place the characters at the appropriate level of the hierarchy, judging their rank by the value of the objects displayed in public settings. The texts also served as instructions for proper consumption and guided the reader into ways of establishing and displaying aristocratic identities in public settings.
