Contextualizing Miracles in the Christian West, 1100-1500

Full Product Description

This volume brings together innovative research on miracles in the Christian West 1100-1500, and includes chapters on Anglo-Norman saints' cults, late medieval Portugal and the legacy of medieval hagiography in the immediate post-Reformation period. Contributors investigate miracle narratives in conjunction with broader socio-cultural ideals, practices and developments in medieval society. They also reassess the legacy of Peter Brown, challenge established dichotomies such as 'medicine and religion', and examine relics, lay beliefs and the liturgical evidence of a saint's cult, moving beyond the traditional focus on canonization. Medical history features prominently alongside other approaches; these clarify the contexts of our sources, and demonstrate the methodological vibrancy in this field.
