Description

Medieval art and society could not have existed without nonhuman animals. Human knowledge of animals is and was produced and exchanged largely through images, albeit differently during the Middle Ages than today. These papers address the ways in which humans defined themselves against animal others in and through visual images. Martha Easton and Corine Schleif
