Editorial Reviews

Review

"Bynum is asking that even while we deploy all the tricks and tools of modern historical analysis, we take seriously the obligation to marvel at the complexity, at the otherness, of the medieval world, a world that we will never perfectly understand and yet that seems to point to something worth understanding." Patrick J. Geary The New Republic



"Over the past 30 years, Bynum has published an initially contentious series of books that have illuminated many aspects of the oddness of the medieval world... This time she focuses on Christians' intense devotion to objects that they believed both signaled and embodied God's essence and glory."

- The Chronicle of Higher Education



"Once again, Caroline Walker Bynum's work captures, with characteristic vividness and precision, the particularity and the urgency of the thought-patterns of a long-past Middle Ages. If, as Bynum argues, 'Wonder is the special characteristic of the historian,' then this book can count both as a ringing validation of the historian's craft and as a challenge to modern persons to take seriously studies of the past that replenish and sharpen our own sense of wonder at central problems of the human experience of change and identity that, for good or ill, refuse to go away." Peter Brown , Department of History, Princeton University
