Product Description

Review

"Bynum is asking that even while we deploy all the tricks and tools of modern historical analysis, we take seriously the obligation to marvel at the complexity, at the otherness, of the medieval world, a world that we will never perfectly understand and yet that seems to point to something worth understanding." Patrick J. Geary The New Republic "Over the past 30 years, Bynum has published an initially contentious series of books that have illuminated many aspects of the oddness of the medieval world... This time she focuses on Christians' intense devotion to objects that they believed both signaled and embodied God's essence and glory." - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Format: Paperback
As always with Caroline Walker Bynum, this is a brilliant book, with a wonderful chapter on wonder and the miraculous in medieval imagination. Full of instruction and an incitement to thought.
