MANZI, Ofelia. La representación de la ciudad en un manuscrito carolingio. Temas Mediev. [online]. 2006, vol.14, pp.71-84. ISSN 0327-5094.

The analysis of the miniatures in the ninth century Utrecht Psalter shows the originality of Carolingian work where the relationship between text and image is solved by means of a particular rhetorical language. Certain traits in style which in the Hellenistic tradition represented mere indicators of landscapes, buildings or various other objects, now acquire a different meaning which can be understood only through a thorough interpretation of their context.In the case of representations of the City it is possible to identify different meanings assigned to iconographic themes which are consistent with established patterns.

Keywords : City; Representation; Psalters.
