Inhaltsangabe: In this volume, the Italian novelist and playwright Umberto Eco aims to present a learned summary of mediaeval aesthetic ideas. Juxtaposing theology and science, poetry and mysticism, Eco explores the relationship that existed between the aesthetic theories and the artistic experience and practice of mediaeval culture.
"A delightful study ... Eco's remarkably lucid and readable essay is full of contemporary relevance and informed by the energies of a man in love with his subject." -- Robert Taylor, Boston Globe
"A lively introduction to the subject." -- Michael Camille, The Burlington Magazine
"If you want to become acquainted with medieval aesthetics, you will not find a more scrupulously researched, better written (or better translated), intelligent and illuminating introduction than Eco's short volume." -- D. C. Barrett, Art Monthly
"The book lays out so many exciting ideas and interesting facts that readers will find it gripping." -- Washington Post Book World
