Sin and its Cultural Place in the West: Medieval and Early Modern (Book)
Title: Sin and its Cultural Place in the West: Medieval and Early Modern
Editor: Susan J. Ridyard
Editor: Richard G. Newhauser
Abstract: A collection of essays, derived primarily from a 2006 NEH Summer Seminar and from papers presented at the 2007 Sewanee Medieval Colloquium. These essays make available significant current scholarship on the place of the Seven Deadly Sins tradition in Western culture both before and after the supposed turning-point of the Protestant Reformation. Part I concerns the sins in religious, intellectual and pastoral contexts. Part II focuses on the sins in musical, literary and visual arts. Together these essays, contextualized in an extended introduction by Richard Newhauser, significantly enhance our understanding of the multiple uses and meanings of the sins tradition not only in medieval culture but also in the transition from the medieval to the early modern period.
