About this title

Synopsis:

Medieval clerics believed that original sin had rendered their 'fallen bodies' vulnerable to corrupting impulses. They feared that their corporeal frailty left them susceptible to demonic forces bent on penetrating and polluting their bodies and souls. This book examines issues generated by fears of pollution, sexuality, and demonology.
