Paintings in the Heart: Early Modern Swedish Broadside Ballads of Wonders and Accidents

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

This article investigates the reception of Swedish broadside songs dealing with wonders and accidents from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Focusing on rhetorical strategies, the study suggests that these broadside ballads were designed to function as the basis for Lutheran meditation. The wonders and accidents are interpreted as the divine words of God, and the shocking images are used to create a strong visual and emotional appeal intended to influence the inner life of the audience.
