Medieval Bodies: Life, Death and Art in the Middle Ages

Venue: Baillie Gifford Stage

Dripping with blood and gold, fetishised and tortured, gateway to earthly delights and point of contact with the divine, forcibly divided and powerful even beyond death, there was no territory more contested than the body in the medieval world. The art historian uncovers the complex and fascinating ways in which the people of the Middle Ages thought about, explored and experienced their physical selves.
