Juice of life : the symbolic and magic significance of blood by Piero Camporesi ( Book )
6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Middle Ages to the Enlightenment, bodily fluids or "humors" - whether blood, semen, or phlegm - obsessed the educated and ignorant alike. These "elixirs" were believed to possess magical powers guaranteeing long life, sexual potency, intellectual insight (particularly in women), and even holiness. Piero Camporesi, a specialist in popular culture from the Middle Ages to the Enlightenment, tells this fascinating story with an abundance of examples, still of great relevance to those of us who drink "cordials" for revitalizing the heart, take potions for sexual vigor, and believe that a ruddy complexion is a sign of health. This is also a proto-feminist story, for women's purified body, with its menstrual discharge, endows her with greater intelligence - a paradoxical but revolutionary conclusion in an era of misogyny
The anatomy of the senses : natural symbols in medieval and early modern Italy by Piero Camporesi ( Book )
7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Drawing on a large body of literature, Camporesi builds up a remarkable picture of the everyday beliefs and practices of medieval and early modern Italy. He examines the symbolism relating to food and the overtones of vampirism which have haunted the Christian sacraments. He discusses the eating habits of monks and hermits which were held up as a religious model for the community. He offers a striking analysis of medieval views of the body, and of humanity situated at the centre of the symbolic universe. Moving from the anatomical table to the kitchen table, he shows the similarities between the anatomist and the cook, both of whom worked with dead flesh, with corpses which had to be cut up, greased, severed, skinned, diced and gutted. Vivid in detail and engagingly written, The Anatomy of the Senses will be welcomed by students and researchers in social and cultural history, as well as anyone interested in the history of the body, food and popular beliefs

Il paese della fame by Piero Camporesi ( Book )
28 editions published between 1978 and 2009 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Il libro è un'analisi di alcuni grandi miti folklorici (il carnevale, la cuccagna, il sabba) nei loro rapporti con le pratiche culinarie, e al tempo stesso una ricerca sulla dimensione alimentare e corporale delle cosmogonie popolari nella loro interazione con la letteratura aristocratica. Attraverso lo spettro della fame e le delizie della cucina, tra giganti e uomini-gallina, ciarlatani e mendicanti, vengono così esplorate le varie forme della scrittura, dal teatro di piazza alla poesia di corte. Passando dal Medioevo al Rinascimento, comprendiamo come la vitalità della cultura "bassa" abbia agito sulle arti più nobili
