Overview

This volume locates the Divine and the Erotic within the continuum of experience and devotion that characterize the paradox of the medieval world. Not merely original in their approaches, these authors seek a new vision of how these two interconnected themes - sexuality and the Divine - meet, connect, distinguish themselves, and merge within medieval life, language, and literature.
