Anticipating Sin in Medieval Society




Erin V. Abraham

The early penitentials provide important glimpses into medieval ideas about social and spiritual affairs. Composed between the sixth and ninth centuries, these little books of penance address a wide range of human fallibility but are far more than mere tariffs of sin and penance. Instead, by anticipating various sins in multiple contexts, they reveal much about the ways their authors and, presumably, their audiences understood a variety of social phenomena. With more accurate translations of the penitentials, this book delves into the potentialities addressed in these manuals for clues about less tangible aspects of early medieval history, including: the innocence and vulnerability of young children and the relationship between speech and culpability; the links between puberty, autonomy, and moral accountability; early medieval efforts to regulate conjugal unions and sexual relationships; and discussions of sexual deviance and violence as sources of social and spiritual pollution.

Church and belief in the Middle Ages



The roles of popes, saints, and crusaders were inextricably intertwined in the Middle Ages: papal administration was fundamental in the making and promulgating of new saints and in financing crusades, while crusaders used saints as propaganda to back up the authority of popes, and even occasionally ended up being sanctified themselves. Yet, current scholarship rarely treats these three components of medieval faith together. This book remedies that by bringing together scholars to consider the links among the three and the ways that understanding them can help us build a more complete picture of the working of the church and Christianity in the Middle Ages.

Emotions, passions, and power in Renaissance Italy

Emotions, passions, and power in Renaissance Italy



Emotions depend on language, cultural practices, expectation and moral beliefs. Hate, fear, cruelty and love are always turning history into the history of passion and lust, because emotional life is always ready to overflow intellectual life. This fascinating study of emotion in Renaissance Italy shows that emotions are built and created by the society in which they are expressed and conditioned. The contributors examine, among others, the emotional language of the court, around public execution, religious practices and during outbreaks of disease.

Isidore of Seville and his reception in the Early Middle Age



Isidore of Seville (560-636) was a crucial figure in the preservation and sharing of classical and early Christian knowledge. His compilations of the works of earlier authorities formed an essential part of monastic education for centuries. Due to the vast amount of information he gathered and its wide dissemination in the Middle Ages, Pope John Paul II even named Isidore the patron saint of the Internet in 1997. This volume represents a cross section of the various approaches scholars have taken toward Isidore's writings. The essays explore his sources, how he selected and arranged them for posterity, and how his legacy was reflected in later generations' work across the early medieval West. Rich in archival detail, this collection provides a wealth of interdisciplinary expertise on one of history's greatest intellectuals.

Same-sex sexuality in later medieval English culture

Same-sex sexuality in later medieval English culture




Tom Linkinen

This volume investigates the state of same-sex relations in later medieval England, drawing on a remarkably rich array of primary sources from the period that include legal documents, artworks, theological treatises, and poetry. Tom Linkinen uses those sources to build a framework of medieval condemnations of same-sex intimacy and desire and then shows how same-sex sexuality reflected—and was inflected by—gender hierarchies, approaches to crime, and the conspicuous silence on the matter in the legal systems of the period.

Shifting ethnic identities in spain and gaul, 500-700




Erica Buchberger

Previous scholarship has examined the ethnic identities of Goths, Franks, and other 'barbarian' groups in the post-Roman West, but Romans have been relatively neglected. Part of the reason for this lacuna is the assumption that 'Roman' continued to denote solely cultural and legal affiliation. In fact, as this book demonstrates, contemporaries also associated Romanness with descent and described Romans just like they described Franks and Goths - whom scholars are perfectly happy to call 'ethnic groups'. By distinguishing between political, religious, and descent nuances with which authors used the terms 'Roman', 'Goth', and 'Frank', this comparative study tracks changes in the use and perception of these identifications, which allowed Romans in Iberia and Gaul to adopt the Gothic or Frankish identities of their new rulers, one nuance at a time. AUP Catalogue S17 text Traditional scholarship on post-Roman western culture has tended to examine the ethnic identities of Goths, Franks, and similar groups while neglecting the Romans themselves, in part because modern scholars have viewed the concept of being Roman as one denoting primarily a cultural or legal affiliation. As this book demonstrates, however, early medieval 'Romanness' also encompassed a sense of belonging to an ethnic group, which allowed Romans in Iberia and Gaul to adopt Gothic or Frankish identities in a more nuanced manner than has been previously acknowledged in the literature.

The Narrative Worlds of Paul the Deacon




C. Heath

Written as the Lombard kingdom was on the cusp of downfall at the hands of the Carolingian empire, the works of Paul the Deacon (c. 720-799) are vital to understanding the history of Italy and Western Europe in the Middle Ages. But until now, scholars have tended to neglect the narrative structure of his texts, which reflect in important ways his personal responses to the events of his time. This study presents fresh interpretations of Paul's Historia Romana Vita Sancti Gregorii Magni, Gesta Episcopum Mettensium, and Historia Langobardorum by focusing on him as an individual and on his strategies of argumentation, ultimately advancing a new conception of Paul as a dynamic author whose development of multiple lines of thought deserves closer examination.

Thomas Aquinas's relics as focus for conflict and cult in th




Marika Räsänen

This book offers a unique approach to Thomas Aquinas the saint by focusing on his dead body. Thomas's corpse was not simply perceived as the physical remains of a philosopher, but as a holy relic. The remains became a focus of veneration, and yet, due to many political intrigues, the corpse was not always materially present in devotional moments. In these situations, the holy relics were recreated verbally, pictorially, or allegorically from elements that were not directly connected to Thomas's remains, even to the extent in which the presence of the corpse was perceptible by nose or mouth. Both of these praesentiae, physical and imagined, were equally real to the medieval listener or spectator. The book argues that although medieval communities were able to create the presence of Thomas's corpse by various techniques, the question of the material presence of Thomas's remains became increasingly important in the politically tumultuous southern Italy. NB CATALOGUSTEKST CHICAGO: This book offers a new way of looking at Saint Thomas Aquinas-not as a living man, but as a posthumous source of relics. Marika Räsänen delves deep into the strange relationship between Aquinas's physical remains and the devotional moments they enabled-in many cases in situations where the actual relics were even present, but were recreated verbally, pictorially, or allegorically. Both the actual relics and these extended manifestations of them, Räsänen shows, were equally real to the medieval spectator, though the question of the material presence of Aquinas's remains became increasingly important over time amid the political tumult of southern Italy.

Visions of the end in Medieval Spain




John Williams

Never before have all twenty-nine illustrated copies of the Beatus Commentaries on the Apocalypse been brought together for comparative analysis in a single volume. John Williams, renowned expert on the Commentaries, offers here his updated considerations on the material, revising and summing up a lifetime of study on these strikingly illuminated manuscripts. Dating from the early to central Middle Ages, the Spanish phenomenon of the Commentary on the Apocalypse responded to differing monastic needs within the shifting context of the Middle Ages. The volume also presents an in-depth study of the recently discovered Geneva Beatus. One of only three Commentaries written outside the Iberian Peninsula, this manuscript closely follows a Spanish model but was written in a Beneventan script and painted in a style dramatically different from the original.
