Being a pilgrim : art and ritual on the medieval routes to Santiago by Kathleen M Ashley( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Way of St James has been a pilgrimage event for over 1000 years as people have flocked to the site of the burial of the apostle St James the Great. Legend states that the body of James was carried by boat from Jerusalem to Santiago de Compostela in Spain, where a church was erected on the site of the tomb. There is no single route for the pilgrims to follow, but there are several key paths. Kathleen Ashley and Marilyn Deegan capture the experience of the medieval pilgrim through an examination of art, historical and social contexts as well as themes related to pilgrimage such as music, legend and ritual. The book is copiously illustrated with new photographs by Marilyn Deegan showcasing the visual legacy of the medieval pilgrimage experience in sculpture, painting and architecture. Interwoven in Kathleen Ashley's narrative text are original sources bringing to us the voice of these men and women who set out on what was then an epic journey

As a symbol of immense authority, Saint Anne provides valuable access to this historically specific culture
Writing faith : text, sign & history in the miracles of Sainte Foy by Kathleen M Ashley( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Writing Faith demonstrates that clusters of miracles form sign systems, and that it is those systems of meaning or representation that can be historically located. Thus, rather than treating individual miracle stories as transparent sources of specific historical data, we can recognize representations common to groups of miracle stories as coherent historical formations. For instance, the negative characterizations of Muslims in the late miracles situate the stories' composition in the eleventh century, a period of rising hostility on the eve of the Crusades."--Jacket

Medieval fabrications : dress, textiles, clothwork, and other cultural imaginings by E. Jane Burns( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The varied cultural functions of dress, textiles and clothwork provide an especially cogent lens through which to re-examine our assumptions about the Middle Ages because of the topic's conceptual breadth. Its implications range from the highly theoretical to the very concrete. At one end of the spectrum, questions of dress call up feminist theoretical investigations into the body and subjectivity, while broadening those inquiries to include theories of masculinity as well. At the other extreme, the production and distribution of textiles carries us into the domain of economic history and the study of material commodities, trade and cultural patterns of exchange within western Europe and between east and west. Contributors to this volume represent a broad array of disciplines currently involved in rethinking medieval culture in terms of the material world
