(p.109) Chapter Four Privileged Mediators
Albrecht Dürer and the Epistolary Mode of Address

Shira Brisman

University of Chicago Press

Chapter four treats the epistles of the Church Fathers and the pictorial tradition of saints and evangelists writing letters from their studies. During the period of the Reformation, when the formulation of the heresies of the church and Luther’s new translation of the Bible were brokered through epistolary exchanges, the illustrations accompanying the open letters of the Church Fathers increasingly included an emphasis on the role of the messenger.
