How does imprisonment acquire meaning in particular times and places? This book looks at the importance of religious thought on ideas of imprisonment in the European Middle Ages by examining the images and ideas of imprisonment found in a diverse range of medieval religious contexts: the monastic world, the world of the crusades, the practices of the inquisitions, the world of preaching and example, and the medieval cult of saints. Together these contexts show that imprisonment provided medieval Christians with a useful way of articulating their place in the earthly world and in eternity
"This book explores the world of religious thinking on imprisonment, and how images of imprisonment were used in monastic thought, the cult of saints, the early inquisitions, preaching and hagiographical literature and the world of the crusades to describe a conception of inclusion and freedom that was especially meaningful to medieval Christians."-- Provided by publisher
