Summary
Devout reverence to the wound in Christ's side is omnipresent in the religious piety of the late Middle Ages. In the wake of this central motif, Anne Bezzel's intricate study shows that this devotion is embedded in the complex cosmos of medieval religiosity, which is characterized by the significance of the body, the longing for grace, the discovery of love, and discourse on the concepts of gender.This work was awarded the Nuremberg Staedtler Foundation 2023 doctoral prize.
