How much can we know about sensory experience in the Middle Ages? While few would question that the human senses encountered a profoundly different environment in the medieval world, two distinct and opposite interpretations of that encounter have emerged―one of high sensual intensity and one of extreme sensual starvation.

Presenting original, cutting-edge scholarship, Stephen G. Nichols, Andreas Kablitz, Alison Calhoun, and their team of distinguished colleagues transport us to the center of this lively debate. Organized within historical, thematic, and contextual frameworks, these essays examine the psychological, rhetorical, and philological complexities of sensory perception from the classical period to the late Middle Ages.

Review:

"Clever, integrated, and convincing. Rethinking the Medieval Senses is a gate into the medieval culture at large―from literature to theology―into the history of the occidental body, into the complexity of the human condition."

(Bernard Cerquiglini, Louisiana State University)

"Rethinking the Medieval Senses is a major contribution to our understanding of a fundamental aspect of medieval culture. It is throught-provoking and informative."

(Virginie Greene Clio)

"The collection of essays edited by Nichols et al. is the fruit of cooperation between historians and literary scholars (mainly in the Romance languages) at American and European universities."

(Richard G. Newhauser Senses and Society)
