What attitudes did the medieval world have towards disabled people? Was every physical impairment a punishment for sin? And how did impairment affect the normal, everyday life of medieval disabled people? Disability in Medieval Europe presents a serious account of these and other aspects of the cultural construction of disability in that period of European history."--Jacket.
