9780754668220: Disability in the Middle Ages: Reconsiderations and Reverberations

What do we mean when we talk about disability in the Middle Ages? This volume brings together dynamic scholars working on the subject in medieval literature and history, who use the latest approaches from the field to address this central question. Contributors discuss such standard medieval texts as the Arthurian Legend, The Canterbury Tales and Old Norse Sagas, providing an accessible entry point to the field of medieval disability studies to medievalists. The essays explore a wide variety of disabilities, including the more traditionally accepted classifications of blindness and deafness, as well as perceived disabilities such as madness, pregnancy and age. Adopting a ground-breaking new approach to the study of disability in the medieval period, this provocative book will interest medievalists and scholars of disability throughout history.

About the Author:

Joshua R. Eyler is an Assistant Professor of English at Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia, USA.

Review:

'... this volume offers a fresh perspective on the rapidly emerging topic of disability in the Middle Ages. The different approaches employed by literary and historical scholars emerge as one of the stronger points of this collection, in that the tendency of literary criticism to treat disability as a narrative prosthesis is counterbalanced by rigorous historical analysis of sources that uncover the physical bodies of mediaeval persons, making for an interesting, challenging and thought-provoking amalgam of discourse analysis and philological reconstruction.' Medical History 'Eyler has edited an interesting selection of papers that contribute to the growing field of medieval disability. But most importantly these do not simply add the disabled to past histories, they explore various ontologies of disability that existed at the time. ' Medieval Archaeology '... a fresh new addition to studies of medieval disability...' Social History of Medicine '... this book is a commendable collaborative effort with some justifiable conviction that disability, in all its multifaceted forms, was not always viewed as a negative in the Middle Ages.' Sixteenth Century Journal 'Overall, this is an excellent introduction to the topic of medieval disabilities. This work is accessible to educated undergraduate readers, but has scholarly notes, a useful index, and bibliography that academics will find informative. Many of the articles include primary sources in both original languages and translations, making the work important to the researcher and valuable in the classroom.' Bulletin of the History of Medicine
