9781843838272: English Medieval Misericords (Boydell Studies in Medieval Art and Architecture)

Misericord carvings present a fascinating corpus of medieval art which, in turn, complements our knowledge of life and belief in the late middle ages. Subjects range from the sacred to the profane and from the fantastic to the everyday, seemingly giving equal weight to the scatological and the spiritual alike. Focusing specifically on England - though with cognisance of broader European contexts - this volume offers an analysis of misericords in relation to other cultural artefacts of the period. Through a series of themed "case studies", the book places misericords firmly within the doctrinal and devotional milieu in which they were created and sited, arguing that even the apparently coarse images to be found beneath choir stalls are intimately linked to the devotional life of the medieval English Church. The analysis is complemented by a gazetteer of the most notable instances.

Review:

Illuminates both the objects themselves and ways of thinking about them. --Furniture History Society Newsletter

An informative and entertaining book. --Church History

The great strength of the book is that it attempts to approach the images through the eyes of those who saw them and understood their meaning. (...) An interesting and important book. --Vidimus
