An important chapter in the history of the body, this study investigates the significance of how medieval writers saw the body as a container of blood. Written from an interdisciplinary perspective with interested lay readers in mind, this title discusses how and why the blood of Christ and saints were venerated, how the medieval medical community viewed the body, how knight's blood was spilt to establish superior valor, and how health and personality traits were linked to blood. Calling upon a wide range of materials and texts-including those from medieval Germany-this title also demonstrates how blood was used to create social links between families as well as the distinctions made between the genders and between Jews and Christians.
