Beschrijving

Saints walking around headless, vagina-shaped wounds and a Jesus being crushed like a grape: welcome to medieval man's intriguing perception of the world. Thanks to a growing fixation on the body and body parts, some of the works of art created in the late Middle Ages meet with amazement and sometimes incomprehension today. How should we, from our position in the present, look at these works of art from so long ago? Body Language introduces you to the role of the body in devotion in the late Middle Ages (1300-1500) and to the surprising/sometimes bizarre works of art associated with it. Once you have finished this book, your view of the body will have changed forever. This publication concludes a multi-year research project on the body in the Middle Ages that was conducted at the University of Amsterdam. It will be presented at an exhibition of the same name that will feature at the Catharijne Convent Museum in Utrecht (25.09.2020 - 17.1.2021).
