Framing Medieval Bodies [1996, Manchester University Press]

£34.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Paperback, published in 1996 by Manchester University Press. Illustrated with black & white drawings, full notes at the end of each chapter, and an index.

The body was a central symbol in medieval culture - discussed, treated and maltreated, represented and exposed in a variety of contexts and in a multiplicity of idioms. This book responds to the recent awareness amongst scholars of the importance of this subject and brings an interdisciplinary approach to the analysis of the body, so overcoming the difficulties of mastering the topic from any single perspective or historical source. The contributors offer fresh perspectives on the ways in which bodies were framed and experienced in medieval culture. The chapters range across the cultural, historical, literary and archaeological dimensions to the subject, as well as focusing on diverse European regions. They also have many themes in common: recognition of historical specificity, an interest in modern theory and an awareness of the challenge which this theory poses to medieval studies.

In excellent condition throughout, clean and fresh with a tight binding.
