Readers will want to savor the essays, chew them over in order to release their flavor ... this deceptively slim book suggests a revision of everything we think about the medieval understanding and experience of faith (Rachel Fulton Brown, The Medieval Review)
The Experience of Beauty in the Middle Ages is a jumble of interesting and perceptive insights into the conceptual underpinnings of medieval art, architecture, and literature. (Stephen Jaeger, The American Historical Review)
About the Author
Mary Carruthers studies memory training and rhetorical practices of the Middle Ages, in universities and monasteries, clerical and court cultures, focussing in particular on compositional and performative practice in the arts of the twelfth through the mid-fifteenth centuries in Europe. Her work has been fruitful to scholars in a number of other disciplines besides literature, including cultural history, comparative religion, the history of psychology and education, art and architecture history, and musicology. She received her BA from Wellesley College and her PhD from Yale University, both in English language and literature, though her work now is mainly with Latin materials. She retired from New York University in 2011. In Oxford she has been George Eastman Visiting Professor and Fellow of All Souls College. She is a Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy and a Fellow of the Medieval Academy of America.
