Overview

The medieval English surgeon was subject to a huge variety of cultural perceptions, ranging from that of pitiless butcher to sanctified healer. The bloody craft of surgery served as a uniquely encompassing metaphor for later medieval Christian identity, as defined by the urgent struggle between damnation and salvation articulated so vividly in Middle English poetry and prose. Citrome employs a variety of critical approaches to explain how surgical metaphors became an important tool of ecclesiastical power in the wake of the Fourth Lateran Council of 1215. Pastoral, theological, recreational, and medical writings are among the texts discussed in this wide-ranging study.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Citrome leaves almost no leaf unturbaned in this comprehensive exploration of surgery in medical and religious writings of later medieval England. His delineation of the concurrent development of the new view of surgery and the emphasis on personal penitence in the centuries following the Fourth Lateran Council is very compelling, as is his argument for the metaphorical significance of surgery in penitential treatises. His re-interpretations of Cleanness, Siege of Jerusalem, and John Audelay's poems are provocative, to say the least, and demand a reconsideration of their artistry. This book should make us all more conscious of how contemporary medicine understanding influenced both the assumptions of and forms of expression in Middle English literature."—George R. Keiser, Professor of English, Kansas State University; author of The Middle English 'Boke of Stones': The Southern Version (1984) and A Manual of the Writings in Middle English, 1050-1500, Vol. 10: Science and Information (1998)
