Medieval Animals

This series explores the historical and cultural impact of animals in the medieval period, with the aim of developing new insights, analysing cultural, social and theological tensions, and revealing their remarkable resonances in our contemporary world. Titles in the series investigate ideas about animals in medieval Europe, from the fifth to the sixteenth century – medieval thought on animals benefited from a rich classical inheritance, and some attitudes towards animals that we might consider as having characterised the Middle Ages persisted up to the Enlightenment era, and even to the present day.
