GALE OWEN-CROCKER, ELIZABETH COATSWORTF (ed.). Art and Worship in the Insular World. Papers in Honour of Elizabeth Coatsworth, Brill, 2021, 381 p.
ISBN: 978-9004466999

Un artista monástico con un entusiasmo inusual por las nalgas y los genitales masculinos; una monja trayendo su equipo de hilado desde su casa en el sur hasta su nuevo convento en el norte; el acertijo de un arquero tallado que lleva un libro en lugar de flechas; un anillo de obispo que oculta en su diseño símbolos de los aspectos esenciales de la fe cristiana: estos son algunos de los secretos del culto personal y público de la Alta Edad Media descubiertos en este libro.

En homenaje a una académica polímata de los estudios medievales tempranos, estos capítulos exploran enfoques que la han cautivado particularmente: escultura en piedra, texto, textiles, arte manuscrito, metalistería y arqueología.
