Product Description

From the Back Cover

"The Mind's Eye represents the most significant collection of essays on medieval art that has been assembled in recent memory, and its implications for the understanding of medieval art and society will be felt for a long time to come. Rarely does a group of conference proceedings demonstrate such a uniformly high quality of intellectual accomplishment, and credit is due not only to the contributors themselves, but also to the editors for bringing together such an important group of scholars in the first place. Indeed, the volume demonstrates, among other things, the inadequacy of modern disciplinary boundaries in addressing medieval history in general and medieval art in particular; this is a model of what interdisciplinarity should be."--Adam Cohen, University of Toronto

Very interesting book 10 July 2010
By Joseph - Published on
Format: Paperback
The illustrations in the paperback version of this book are black and white. The quality of the illustrations are good--very clear--but since the articles in the book are largely based off of paintings and illustrated manuscripts, you lose a lot without the color. However, at $40 instead of $150 for the hardback, the difference is negligible. Just thought that I would mention it. I didn't know before buying. Other than that, the book is great. A couple of the articles are written in French--this is a very academic book--but most are in English. If you are interested the Middle Ages, I can't stress this book enough for learning about not just art, but the way people thought during this time period.

This book contains a series of articles from experts in the academic field such as Hamburger, Kessler, Walker Bynum, Newman and many more. The book is an excellent resource for researchers who are interested in how looking, art and theology worked together in the middle ages.
