______________________________________________________________________

No single group in early modern Europe produced as many emblem books as the Society of Jesus. G. Richard Dimler, S.J., has been a pioneer in the field of Jesuit emblem scholarship. With publications and conference presentations spanning more than forty years on various aspects of the Jesuit emblem, Fr. Dimler has almost single-handedly put Jesuit emblematics on the international scholarly map. His foundational contribution to emblem studies was recognized by Fordham University in 1999, when it named him Research Professor of Jesuit Emblem Studies, and, more recently, with the awarding of emeritus status. Emblematic Images and Religious Texts: Studies in Honor of G. Richard Dimler, S.J., is a tribute by sixteen emblem scholars from the U.S., U.K., and Europe to his pioneering scholarship.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM

Edited by the distinguished literary historians Pedro F. Campa and Peter M. Daly, this fine collection consists of sixteen essays on the emblematic relations between symbolic images and the various genres of religious texts scriptural, devotional, doctrinal, pastoral, and theological that such images diversely complement. [] In addition, the book doubles as a Festschrift, paying homage to that doyen of emblem studies, G. Richard Dimler, S.J., upon whose many indispensable articles on the Jesuit emblem the contributors implicitly draw. As befits the series "Early Modern Catholicism and the Visual Arts," of which it constitutes volume 2, Emblematic Images and Religious Texts endeavors, to quote the series editor John O'Malley, S.J., to illuminate the "breadth and depth of the investment of Catholic institutions and individuals in the arts and to display the richness of the forms that investment took" (vii). Beautifully produced and richly illustrated, the book amply fulfills this mandate. []
