Summary note:
"The late medieval world was marked by a culture of refinement and sophistication. The period's media of choice--paintings, manuscripts, prints, tapestries, embroideries, ivory sculpture, metalwork, and enamels--speak volumes about the pleasures of sensory engagement. This sumptuous new book brings together sacred and secular art to reveal the shared intellectual culture that governed perception in Europe in the 13th through the 16th centuries. The essays explore these themes through representations of religious practices, royal rituals, feasts and celebrations, music, and literature"-- Provided by publisher.
