Ghosts in the Middle Ages by Jean-Claude Schmitt

Book Description

Through this study, Jean-Claude Schmitt examines medieval religious culture and the significance of the widespread belief in ghosts, revealing the ways in which the dead and the living related to each other during the Middle Ages. Schmitt also discusses Augustine's influence on medieval authors; the link between dreams and autobiographical narratives; and monastic visions and folklore. Including numerous colour reproductions of ghosts and ghostly trappings, this book presents a look at medieval culture.
