About this title


Sumptuous colour illustrations of objects and images dating from the thirteenth to the fifteenth centuries complement a text which explores both real and symbolic aspects of medieval love and romance. Highly recommended.

Book Description:

There was nothing chaste or sublimated about many aspects of medieval love which moved through the various stages of looking, talking, touching, kissing, and sexual possession. All the elements of medieval romance are revealed in this magnificently illustrated volume.
