MEDIEVAL BODIES: LIFE, DEATH, AND ART IN THE MIDDLE AGES
A Sunday Times History Book of the Year 2018
"A thick, spicy, plumb pudding of a book”
- London Review of Books
"A triumph of scholarship... this beautifully illustrated book succeeds brilliantly
in bringing this much maligned period to life. "
- The Guardian
"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
"One of the achievements of this splendid book is to make our world view seem
more narrow and fragmented than the ‘Dark Ages’... wit, learning and riveting stories. A wonderful read."
- Evening Standard
