a| Earthly Treasures maps the presence, position, and use in the narrative of a variety of material objects in Marguerite de Navarre's Heptameron. Featured in the text is a wide selection of objects, ranging from tapestries with scripture passages woven into the borders, fine arts paintings, and chalices incised with proverbs, to emblems, table linens, Bibles or manuscripts, clothing, masks, stage props, jewelry, furniture, and foodstuffs. Although the presence of such material objects seems paradoxical, given the scriptural mandate to disregard things of this world, and to "store up treasure" in heaven instead, Marguerite found license to use such objects both in the Bible and in Martin Luther's Table Talk.
a| Marguerite, sister of the Renaissance collector king Francois I[superscript er], was surrounded by beautiful and costly objects, and she used them in her narrative to highlight the disparity between life as it is and, in a theological sense, life as it should be. Because of her social standing, she influenced other evangelical writers (such as Bonaventure Des Periers and Jacques Yver) to use material objects similarly: as concrete, iconic arrows both indicting worldliness and pointing the way out of the world.
a| The Heptameron has not formerly been read as the model for, and progenitor of, a new way of treating the world from an evangelical standpoint. This innovative approach is predicated on an acknowledgment of the plethora of material objects adorning the early modern universe, as well as the cultivation of an attitude of suspicion about the circumstances of their production, the potential for distortion, and the need for the fallen world to be, in a truly Protestant project, realigned with its scriptural template.
