  1. Introduction to "Iconic Space and the Rule of Lands," by Marie-José Mondzain.Rico Franses - 2000 - Hypatia 15 (4):55-57.

    Iconic Space and the Rule of Lands.Marie-José Mondzain & tr Franses, Rico - 2000 - Hypatia 15 (4):58-76.
    : In the following extract, Mondzain examines the way in which the spiritual hegemony of the Early Christian and Byzantine church was transformed into political power. The primary tool used in this endeavor was the icon.

  5. Image, Icon, Economy: The Byzantine Origins of the Contemporary Imaginary.Rico Franses (ed.) - 2004 - Stanford University Press.
    The barest awareness of the ubiquity and influence of the media today provides proof enough that our fate is in the hands of the image. But when and how was this fate sealed? _Image, Icon, Economy_ considers this question and recounts an essential thread in the conceptualization of visual images within the Western tradition.
