Perspectives on Medieval Art by Ena Giurescu Heller Book Summary:
"Perspectives on Medieval Art: Learning through Looking examines medieval culture from a number of different viewpoints to reveal how the art of the Middle Ages can provide a unique insight into the wider issues of medieval politics and culture. The essays also address the teaching of medieval art and architecture as well as examining society's longing for ecclesiastical drama. Contributions from leading theologians and historians variously study life and art in the Middle Ages, why the medieval period matters today and how medieval art speaks to a 21st-century audience. Scholars from different disciplines, including Thomas Cahill and Kathryn Kueny, consider individual works of art simultaneously and examine how medieval art is taught in divinity schools, university and college classrooms and museums."--Publisher's description.
Medieval Art by Veronica Sekules,Head of Education Sainsbury Centre Veronica Sekules,Veronica (Head of Education Sekules, Sainsbury Centre University of East Anglia) Book Summary:
This refreshing new look at Medieval art conveys a very real sense of the impact of art on everyday life in Europe from 1000 to 1500. It examines the importance of art in the expression and spread of knowledge and ideas, including notions of the heroism and justice of war, and the dominant view of Christianity. Taking its starting point from issues of contemporary relevance, such as the environment, the identity of the artist, and the position of women, the book also highlights the attitudes and events specific to the sophisticated visual culture of the Middle Ages, and goes on to link this period to the Renaissance. The fascinating question of whether commercial and social activities between countries encouraged similar artistic taste and patronage, or contributed to the defining of cultural difference in Europe, is fully explored.

Image on the Edge by Michael Camille Book Summary:
It is here at the edge--of the monastery, the cathedral, the court, the city--that medieval artists found room for experimentation, for glossing, parodying, modernizing, and questioning cultural authority without ever undermining it. Viewing marginalia in their proper social and cultural context, Camille reveals scandalous and subversive aspects, as well as apparently paradoxical stabilizing functions. He rejects oppositions such as high and low, profane and sacred, and instead projects a vision of medieval culture in which marginal resistance, inversion, and transgression play an integral, even necessary, role.

Medieval Art, Medieval People by Richard H. Putney Book Summary:
Since its installation in 1932, the Cloister Gallery has been the setting of group tours, University and Museum classes, weddings. and, of course, visits by thousands of families and individuals. The gallery's popularity is due in large part to its display of beautiful objects made in Europe during the Middle Ages. The gallery's most striking feature is its dramatic installation of three arcades from three long-demolished or abandoned buildings in southern France. Only a handful of American museums are fortunate enough to have such galleries. Responding to visitor demand, Richard H. Putney, professor of art history at the University of Toledo, was commissioned to write about Toledo's cloister arcades and some of the medieval art objects. His text covers essential aspects of style, chronology, and historical setting, but his central focus is on the relationship of some of the works of art in the collection to the people--churchmen, monks, noblemen, peasants, and artists--who made up medieval society
