Body Language: The Body in Medieval Art
Body Language is at once a collection of surprising artworks and a reflection on the role of the human body in a devotional context. From 1300 to 1500, artists participated in a culture that emphasized the crudest, most human elements of the Biblical stories depicted, blood, guts and all.
Featuring a beautiful die-cut cover, this volume demonstrates the raw passion and vivid theological beliefs conveyed through illustrations that may now be considered disturbing or bizarre.
