Visions and Voice-Hearing in Medieval and Early Modern Contexts

Visions and Voice-Hearing in Medieval and Early Modern Contexts by Hilary Powell
English | PDF | 2021 | 327 Pages | ISBN : 3030526585 | 4 MB

This book examines how the experiences of hearing voices and seeing visions were understood within the cultural, literary, and intellectual contexts of the medieval and early modern periods. In the Middle Ages, these experiences were interpreted according to frameworks that could credit visionaries or voice-hearers with spiritual knowledge, and allow them to inhabit social roles that were as much desired as feared.
