About Anja Eisenbeiss

Anja's educational background is in art history, classical archaeology
and philosophy. Her research interests include knowledge transfer in and by media, portraiture and art patronage at the Hapsburg courts. Currently she is focused on the visuality of otherness, superstition and magical thinking in late medieval French manuscripts of Saint Augustine’s City of God and early modern prodigy literature. She has published articles on the iconography and patronage of Maximilian I (1459–1519) and is revising her doctoral thesis on the portraiture of this emperor for publication.
