Supernatural generation and the limits of power in Shakespeare’s Richard III

, contention and exchange were the constitutive and sometimes even deconstructive principles’. 6 Generative success was only truly measurable when the child was born: alive, whole, legitimate and ideally male, with a clear resemblance to its father. Visual markers of success are often described in metaphors of mechanical means of reproduction, such as coining, printing or stamping, as when in The Winter’s Tale Leontes praises Florizel's mother with ‘[y]our mother was most true to wedlock, Prince,/For she did print your

A material and processual account of image making

8 Neolithic and Copper Age stamps in the Balkans: a material and processual account of image making Agni Prijatelj Stamps are some of the strangest tools from Neolithic and Copper Age settlements across the Balkans: whilst more than 430 have been preserved across some 175 sites (Makkay 1984, 2005), their imprints remain absent from the archaeological record. Indeed, whilst the absence of materials with stamp impressions remains the central problem in any study of these artefacts, I argue here that the tools themselves are far from mute.

During the Second World War and its aftermath, the legend was spread that the Germans turned the bodies of Holocaust victims into soap stamped with the initials RIF, falsely interpreted as made from pure Jewish fat. In the years following liberation, RIF soap was solemnly buried in cemeteries all over the world and came to symbolise the six million killed in the Shoah, publicly showing the determination of Jewry to never forget the victims. This article will examine the funerals that started in Bulgaria and then attracted several thousand mourners in Brazil and Romania, attended by prominent public personalities and receiving widespread media coverage at home and abroad. In 1990 Yad Vashem laid the Jewish soap legend to rest, and today tombstones over soap graves are falling into decay with new ones avoiding the word soap. RIF soap, however, is alive in the virtual world of the Internet and remains fiercely disputed between believers and deniers.

A key objective of international refugee management is to reduce fraud, one type of which is repeated registration by the same individual, or registration by those who do not qualify as recipients. In the past, UNHCR tried to avoid multiple registrations by using stamps, wristbands, photographs, fingerprints or biometrics ( UNHCR, n.d.b ). I will show how

One of the Secretaries of State [Grafton] is a very young man, and the other [Conway] new in the business. In general they want authority, and seem to have no head except the Duke of Cumberland, whose health and life are thought to be very precarious.1 This appraisal was by an opponent, Grenvillite

Having examined both the universal Catholic mould and the distinctively Gaelic stamp of early Irish Christianity, I shall conclude by looking at some of the ways in which it has dealt with the pre-Christian past and contributed to shaping the future. The interaction of Gaelic and Catholic in the early middle ages has to be seen in the context of a dynamic history following the Celticisation of 22 Celts, Catholicism and the middle ages Ireland and the
