PhD Project

My project is an analysis of how visuality as part of medieval education was approached in Old Norse intellectual thought. By applying a rhetorical framework, this study will approach material and mental images in the main manuscript of Konungs skuggsjá (AM 243 ba fol) in a way that it will contribute with new perspectives on how pedagogy was used in moral and spiritual education within the Norwegian elite during the late thirteenth century.
