Miracles And The Medieval Mind

£12.99

Product description

The miraculous wielded a considerable influence on medieval man. Events which were called miracula permeated life at every level but were so closely woven into the texture of Christian experience that there is little direct documentation of what people actually thought about them, there being no incentive to explain or examine the presuppositions that lay behind them. This new edition of an extensive study focuses on the period from 1100 to 1215, but thought about miracles, as gleaned from the writings of philosophers, theologians, Bible commentators and preachers, remained basically the same throughout the Middle Ages.This absorbing book, in exploring the curiously neglected source of information about the subtlety of the medieval mentality, is a work of major importance for all concerned with the life and thought of the Middle Ages.

Paperback in good condition; some shelf wear.
