This is a highly original exploration of the black African presence in Renaissance Europe. Leading experts from the disciplines of history, literature, art history and anthropology examine Black African experiences and representations from slavery to black musicians and dancers, from real and symbolic Africans at court to the views of the Catholic Church, and from writers of African descent to Black African criminality. Their findings demonstrate the variety and complexity of black African life in fifteenth and sixteenth-century Europe, and how it was affected by Renaissance ideas and conditions.
