"Medieval Bodies is an erudite, wide-ranging, thoughtfully illustrated book... a fascinating compendium of surgery, science, faith, magic and superstition from the fall of the Roman Empire to the beginnings of the Early Modern period."
    - The Times

In Medieval Bodies, art historian Jack Hartnell uncovers the complex and fascinating ways in which the people of the Middle Ages thought about, explored and experienced their physical selves. 

Like a medieval pageant, this striking and unusual history brings together medicine, art, poetry, music, politics, cultural and social history and philosophy to reveal what life was really like for the men and women who lived and died in the Middle Ages.
