Abstract:

What do we know of the emotional life of the Middle Ages? Though a long-neglected subject, a myriad of sources provides clues to the central role emotions played in medieval society. In this work, historians Damien Boquet and Piroska Nagy reveal the many and nuanced experiences of emotion during the Middle Ages. From the demonstrative shame of a saint to a nobleman's fear of embarrassment, they show how emotions changed and developed, enabling us to better understand our own social outlooks and customs.
