Abstract:
  • Annotation. This volume aims to take an interdisciplinary cultural studies approach to the animal in its various medieval manifestations - in science, religion, history, pictorial art and literature - and to define its significance in the cultural life of the age. Important differences from modern viewpoints will emerge, but there are also commonalities and continuities, for without the images of animals handed down to us from the Middle Ages it is not possible to understand the role of animals in our modern times.
