New Publication: Monumental Sounds: Art and Listening Before Dante by Matthew G. Shoaf

New Publication: ‘The Enclosed Garden and the Medieval Religious Imaginary’ by Liz Herbert McAvoy

During the Middle Ages, the arresting motif of the walled garden – especially in its manifestation as a sacred or love-inflected hortus conclusus – was a common literary device.

Framed by evocative inscriptions, tumultuous historical events, and the ambiguities of Christian death, Romanesque tomb effigies were the first large-scale figural monuments for the departed in European art. In this book, Shirin Fozi explores these provocative markers of life and death, establishing early tomb figures as a coherent genre that hinged upon histories of failure and frustrated ambition.
