emblem books (<documents by form>, document genres, ... Visual and Verbal Communication (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Artistic genre that flourished in Europe particularly in the 16th and 17th centuries, focusing on a motto and an image representing that motto. Each emblem generally consists of three parts: a short, often Classical, motto (lemma, inscriptio), a pictorial representation or icon (pictura), and the explanation of the link between them in an epigram (subscriptio). The earliest known and most influential emblem book is the "Emblematum liber," by Andrea Alciate, published in Augsburg in 1531. The format and definiton of emblem books are typically derived from the example of this work; however, the emblem itself remained an ambiguous concept that covered a variety of connections between word and image.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 盛行於歐洲地區,特別是西元十六世紀與十七世紀之間的藝術類型,主要由格言及再現該句格言的圖像構成。每一個象徵圖示都包含三個部分:一段簡短且通常來自古典文化的格言(拉丁文lemma、inscripto)、圖畫再現或圖像,以及串起這兩個部分並提供解釋的機智短詩(拉丁文subscriptio)。目前已知最早出現且最具代表性的寓意書是由安德烈•奧西阿帝在西元1531年於奧古斯堡所出版的「圖詩書」(Emblematum liber)。寓意書的格式與定義來源多半以此作品為主;然而,寓意書本身就是一個模糊的概念,涵蓋了各式各樣的圖文關係。 
Dutch ..... Europees boekgenre dat populair was in de 16de en 17de eeuw. De werken bestaan uit een bundel morele spreuken waar telkens een voorstelling bij hoort. Elk embleem bestaat uit drie delen: een korte, vaak klassieke spreuk (motto, inscriptio), een picturale representatie (pictura) en de verklaring van de link tussen de spreuk en representatie in een epigram (subscriptio). De oudste en invloedrijkste emblematabundel is het "Emblematum liber" van Andrea Alciato, en werd gepubliceerd in Augsburg in 1531. De vorm en definitie van emblemataboeken zijn afgeleid van dit voorbeeldwerk. Toch bleef het embleem zelf een ambigue concept, waarbij de link tussen spreuk en afbeelding kon veranderen. 
German ..... Künstlerisches Genre, das in Europa besonders im 16. und 17. Jahrhundert eine Blütezeit erlebte, in dessen Zentrum ein Motto und ein das Motto darstellendes Bild stand. Jedes Emblem besteht im Wesentlichen aus drei Teilen: einem kurzen, häufig klassischen Motto (Lemma, Inscriptio), einer bildlichen Darstellung oder einem Symbol (Pictura) und einem Epigramm (Subscriptio), das den Zusammenhang zwischen beiden erklärt. Das früheste und einflussreichste Emblembuch ist das "Emblematum liber" von Andrea Alciato, das 1531 in Augsburg veröffentlicht wurde. Format und Benennung der Emblembücher leiten sich von diesem Werk ab; der Begriff des Emblems selbst bleibt hingegen mehrdeutig und umfasst eine Vielzahl von Verbindungen zwischen Wort und Bild.
