In the past few years, interest has grown in the way human emotions have been experienced, stimulated, and expressed in languages throughout history. Cultivating the Heart studies the language of emotions in religious texts in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, focusing on sermons, saints’ lives, guidebooks for religious recluses, meditations, and lyrical poetry. It offers, as well, substantial commentary on church wall paintings, providing readers with a nuanced understanding of the ways in which the affective strategies of visual resources can be mapped onto texts. This is the first book-length study of affective language in the High Middle Ages, a period which has been previously neglected in work on the history of emotions.

About the Author:

A. S. Lazikani is a stipendiary lecturer in Old and Middle English literature at the University of Oxford.

Review:

“This volume demonstrates how early Middle English religious writings and paintings teach their readers and viewers both to thwart and to embrace affective pain—that is, the interconnected stirrings of love, compassion, and sorrow inspired by the redemptive suffering of Christ and the Saints. Framed authoritatively within the latest critical discussion of the history of emotions and affective literacies, Lazikani’s sensitive readings of these sometimes alienating medieval works recover their emotional intensity and illuminate the function of the extreme suffering they evoke.” (Elizabeth Robertson, University of Glasgow)

Book Description University of Wales Press, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Cultivating the Heart examines the nurturance of feeling - especially the intertwined affective stirrings of compassion, love, and sorrow - in a range of religious texts from the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. These texts encourage, stimulate, define and attempt to express the `cultivation of hearts', an image inspired by Part VII of Ancrene Wisse, whereby readers and audiences of the texts nurture a range of sophisticated `affective literacies'. In addition to extensive analysis of English, Latin and Anglo-Norman texts, this book makes substantial reference to the affective strategies of wall paintings in parish churches, demonstrating how the affective strategies of wall paintings cannot be perceived as inferior to or irreconcilable with the affective import of textual media.
