The Way of Vice and Virtue: A Medieval Psychology


Eva Kimminich


In lieu of an abstract, the first paragraph of the essay follows:

The principal concern of medieval thinking was man's spiritual welfare. It was deeply rooted in the dichotomy of the generally negatively defined body and the positively evaluated soul with the redemption of the soul-and also the body-as the main aim. This central idea runs throughout the thought and imagery of the Christian Middle Ages.
