The Royal Touch (Routledge Revivals)

Sacred Monarchy and Scrofula in England and France

First published in English in 1973, The Royal Touch explores the supernatural character that was long attributed to royal power. Throughout history, both France and England claimed to hold kings with healing powers who, by their touch, could cure people from all strands of society from illness and disease. Indeed, the idea of royalty as something miraculous and sacred was common to the whole of Western Europe. Using the work of both professional scholars and of doctors, this work stands as a contribution to the political history of Europe.

Antonio, ein venezianischer Kaufmann, möchte seinen Freund Bassanio unterstützen, der auf Freiersfüßen wandelt: Bassanio hat sich in Portia, eine reiche junge Adelige, verliebt, und die Brautwerbung verspricht teuer, letztlich aber auch sehr lukrativ zu werden. Um dem Freund mit dem nötigen Geld unter die Arme greifen zu können, macht Antonio selber Schulden, und zwar bei dem jüdischen Geldverleiher Shylock. Shylock, der von den Christen Venedigs verachtet, von Antonio öffentlich beleidigt wird, und der seinerseits Antonio stellvertretend für alle Christen hasst, bietet im Gegensatz zu seiner üblichen Zinspraxis an, diesmal auf Zinsen zu verzichten. Als Sicherheit verlangt er, scheinbar zum Spaß, nur dies: Gelingt es dem Schuldner nicht, das geliehene Geld rechtzeitig zurückzuzahlen, so hat Shylock Anspruch auf „ein Pfund Fleisch“ aus Antonios Körper. Antonio willigt ein und unterschreibt einen entsprechenden Schuldschein, ist er sich doch sicher, dass seine Handelsschiffe, die zurzeit auf großer Fahrt sind, bald reich beladen nach Venedig zurückkehren werden.
