Come see Jack Hartnell discuss and sign his novel “Medieval Bodies: Life and Death in the Middle Ages.” This book uncovers the fascinating ways in which people thought about, explored, and experienced their physical selves in the Middle Ages, from Constantinople to Cairo and Canterbury. Unfolding like a medieval pageant, and filled with saints, soldiers, caliphs, queens, monks and monstrous beasts, this book throws light on the medieval body from head to toe―revealing the surprisingly sophisticated medical knowledge of the time.
