Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a rich volume that should find a home on the shelves not only of specialists but of anyone interested in Medieval and Renaissance Europe. The themes present in this work, in particular the variety of reactions to death and disease at any time, and the tensions between physical and spiritual in cause and remedy open a window onto more general attitudes of the different times and places under consideration. --Canadian Journal of History, Winter 2009

This is a welcome addition to a field often dominated by demographic and epidemiological studies....the collection offers challenging readings of well known and less familiar plagues and pictures, and deservedly focuses attention on the issue of how Christian beliefs shaped responses to epidemic disease. --Renaissance Quarterly

This fine interdisciplinary collection of essays addresses the religious, psychological, and cultural responses to the onslaughts of the bubonic plague from late antiquity to the late seventeenth century. It offers a range of novel insights based on known but otherwise unexplored material, written evidence, and visual sources, and provides examples of superb methodological skill and sophistication in action. --Kiril Pektov, Sixteenth Century Journal, 2009
