Synopsis: Looks at the development of aesthetic philosophy during the sixth through fifteenth centuries and discusses the theology, poetry, science, and mysticism of the period.

From the Back Cover: "[A] delightful study. . . . [Eco's] remarkably lucid and readable essay is full of contemporary relevance and informed by the energies of a man in love with his subject."—Robert Taylor, Boston Globe "The book lays out so many exciting ideas and interesting facts that readers will find it gripping." —Washington Post Book World "A lively introduction to the subject."—Michael Camille, The Burlington Magazine "If you want to become acquainted with medieval aesthetics, you will not find a more scrupulously researched, better written (or better translated), intelligent and illuminating introduction than Eco's short volume."—D. C. Barrett, Art Monthly "A model of what a historical survey should be."—Richard J. Morris, Los Angeles Times "This survey of the aesthetics of medieval Latin civilization. . . reveals the insight and eloquence that would later gain [Eco] worldwide fame after the release of his novel, The Name of the Rose."—Alida Becker, Philadelphia Inquirer "An interesting and thought-provoking volume well worth reading for its original ideas as well as for the aspects shed on art and beauty during that time."—The Oxford Times "Offer[s] as good a general introduction to medieval aesthetics and art theory as one is likely to find in English. . . . The book is filled. . . with quite wonderful material."—Russell Peck, Baltimore Morning Sun "This is a sober and learned study which can be recommended as a lucid exposition of alien ways of thinking."—Nicholas Penny, London Review of Books "More than a history of theory, this essay is an absorbing synthesis of theology, science, poetry, and mysticism with artistic theory and practice—providing comprehensive insight into medieval culture."— Choice "A quarry of valuable material to be borne away in manageable pieces, each of which is to be examined in detail so that the complexities it suggests can be traced and explored."—Diane Collinson, British Journal of Aesthetics "An original and illuminating synthesis of disciplines usually treated separately."—Sunday Times
