As a result of Napoleon’s campaigns in Italy, Old Master art flooded into Britain and its acquisition became an index of national prestige. Maureen McCue argues that their responses to these works informed the writing of Romantic period authors, enabling them to forge often surprising connections between Italian art, the imagination and the period’s political, social and commercial realities. Dr McCue examines poetry, plays, novels, travel writing, exhibition catalogues, early guidebooks and private experiences recorded in letters and diaries by canonical and noncanonical authors, including Felicia Hemans, William Buchanan, Henry Sass, Pierce Egan, William Hazlitt, Percy Shelley, Lord Byron, Anna Jameson, Maria Graham Callcott and Samuel Rogers. Her exploration of the idea of connoisseurship shows the ways in which a knowledge of Italian art became a key marker of cultural standing that was no longer limited to artists and aristocrats, while her chapter on the literary production of post-Waterloo Britain traces the development of a critical vocabulary equally applicable to the visual arts and literature. In offering cultural, historical and literary readings of the responses to Italian art by early nineteenth-century writers, Dr McCue illuminates the important role they played in shaping the themes that are central to our understanding of Romanticism.

In the book Invisible Master, author Leo Lyon Zagami has revealed long-hidden information behind the extraterrestrial phenomenon. With extreme clarity, Zagami discusses the prophets, initiates and magicians who have discovered, over time, this otherworldly connection. He unveils the truth about where we come from, and the reasons behind the political and religious choices we have made during our long march through history. Finally, the reader will gain historically significant insights into this ultra-terrestrial source, and an understanding of the esoteric knowledge once revealed only to the initiates of mystery schools. Who are the Unknown Superiors … the Secret Chiefs … the Invisible Masters who have guided Freemasonry and other secret societies? What is the Illuminati and the various power groups associated with them? For the first time in history, Zagami gives us access to these secrets, and presents an opportunity to understand our alien reality and its true implications for humanity.
