HOW WE LIVED THEN: LIFE AND LOVE IN LATE MEDIEVAL ART / SOCIAL STEREOTYPES

While primarily religious, medieval art teems with information about ordinary life from birth to death and all stages in between. Saintly figures jostle a supporting cast drawn from all walks of life and engage in activities that range from the sublime to the ridiculous. We explore the diverse, charming world of late-medieval imagery and consider the society it brings to life and the cultural messages it carries.


These lectures will attempt to reconstruct in imagination a medieval life story from birth to death. Outward beauty was considered a mark of inner virtue in medieval thinking so saints and sinners are easy to distinguish. In this session we examine the depiction of stock characters in religious art to see how they slot into developing ideas about gender, beauty, race and class.
