conference contributionposted on 28.02.2020, 04:22 by Steve JoyceSteve Joyce
Literary and liturgical approaches to landscape in the early medieval West often speak to profound views on theological or ideological issues. Whether nature is good or bad; its law benevolent or barbaric? Whether domination of the environment is a divine stewardship or the beginnings of human pride? Whether Nature is a cruel mistress or a divine judge? These papers examine literary and aural landscapes from the early medieval West to shine more light on the deeper human questions at the heart of their creation.
