Byzantine/Romanesque Costume History
Byzantine/Romanesque - Early Middle Ages - c 300-1300 - Cedarville University, Costume History Course Board, Fall 2012
Crusaders returning from the holy lands flaunted a new shoe style for men that featured curled-back, pointy toes (known as poulaines). In the 14th and 15th centuries the fashion evolved. Toes grew and grew until some men sported points two feet long that had to be tied to their garters. These points made it hard to walk without tripping. www.sarahalbeeboo...

Early Shoe Fashion Excess in Europe Until the 19th century, both shoes were the same, not made for the right or left foot. The shoe would gradually begin to fit the foot properly after some wear. During the early Middle Ages (also called the Dark Ages) shes were very simple, moccasin like footwear, often made with a single piece of leather that was cut, folded, and fastened to the foot. It was not until the high and Late Middle Ages when new ideas and technologies enabled a new kind of creativity to enter into the production of shoes (as well as clothing) that the idea of fashion as a distinctive style and design that conveyed status on the wearer appeared. The first real shoe fashion excess showed up in the late 1100's. Long, pointed toes gained a brief popularity, fizzled out, then came back in a huge way in the 1300's with the poulaine. Restricted to the elite, the fancy styles, pointed toes, and expensive materials caused the Church some grief due to the immodesty of the excess. As the growing merchant class increased their wealth, the aristocracy wanted to protect their status. Sumptuary laws that restricted the types of clothing a person could wear depending on tier station. were passed to prevent the upstart bourgeoisie from mimicking the elite class. Restrictions were placed on the length of a shoe's toe, limiting the length according to the wearer's income and position in society. By the end of the 15th century, the pointy toe gave way to a wider shoe called a hornbill or bearpaw. Width was also limited according to the wearer's status.

The body of the dalmatic is made from a deep purple silk. The apparels (cuff and lower border) were made from what appears to be red silk twill - similar to the materials used in the construction of the Coronation Mantle of Roger II of Sicily. Materials include blue and red velvet, gold embroidery, gold appliqués with cloisonné enamel and filligree, pearls; The neck is framed by three centimetres wide tablet weave, which is itself framed by indiidually applied pearls.

"On the back of the medallions the emperor is shown in military dress, standing in a chariot drawn by four horses. He holds a globe surmounted by a small Nike offering a crown of victory. To his side is a Christogram, symbolizing the religion of the Byzantine state."

Girdle with Coins and Medallions, ca. 583. Byzantine; Found in 1902 at Karavás, Cyprus (reassembled after discovery). Gold. .... "Old coins were frequently used for jewelry, since under later rulers their historic value and their worth in gold often exceeded their worth as currency. All the coins and medallions are stamped CONOB, an abbreviation for Constantinopolis obryzum ("pure gold of Constantinople"), indicating that they were minted in the capital." [Go Green!] lol.

"Casket with Warriors and Dancers, carved 11th century Byzantine; Probably made in Constantinople. Bone, copper gilt " & "Classical literature and classical images were preserved throughout the Byzantine period." - however the narration further explained some humor of the figures as they seem to face & react to each other around the sides -- claiming the piece to belong to a private citizen.

We call them “wise men” but they were probably actually astrologers: men who studied the the influence of the heavenly spheres on the lives of mere mortals. That’s a discipline we completely discount today, but who better to follow a star to the Living God? http://watchmepaint.blogspot.com/2013/12/six-days-of-advent-magi.html
Found the picture from our book's chapter!! ... Wish I could find the direct source. "Early middle ages"/Byzantine Empire. I would say high West-influence. Yet take a look at the hight of their tunics... & their decorated leggings (stockings). ;D (Makes me think this is from the earlier Byzantine centuries rather than later).

Square-Headed Brooch, 6th century Anglo-Saxon Copper alloy with gilding and niello inlay. This large gilded brooch, which would have been used to secure a cloak, displays the Anglo-Saxon preference for lavish decoration with a particular emphasis on fantastic animal forms. Dark strips of niello inlay frame its richly faceted surface, which is further animated by beast heads, many with bird beaks, projecting from the edges.

The Baptism of Clovis, painted around 1500 by Master of Saint Giles. Clovis (d. 511) was the founder of the Merovingian dynasty and the first Christian king of France. The setting for his baptism can be recognized as Sainte-Chapelle, the royal chapel on the Ile-de-la-Cité in Paris. Among the witnesses is his wife, Clothilde, who was largely responsible for his conversion.
