Reviews

A thick, spicy plum pudding of a book.--Barbara Newman
Jack Hartnell tells [an] extraordinary story in his wonderfully rich study of the Middle Ages...His idea of approaching the medieval worldview through the body is inspired...This beautifully illustrated book succeeds brilliantly in bringing this much maligned period to life...A triumph of scholarship.--PD Smith
One of the achievements of this splendid book is to make our world view seem more narrow and fragmented than that of the extensive period we place somewhere between the Dark Ages and the Renaissance...[A]t every point you'll encounter wit, learning and riveting stories. A wonderful read.--Melanie McDonagh
An ambitiously interdisciplinary study...[E]xtravagantly illustrated...[F]ull of lively information.--G. R. Evans,
