Title :

Desire and denial in Byzantium : papers from the thirty-first spring symposium of Byzantine studies, University of Sussex, Brighton, March 1997

Editor :
JAMES, Liz ;
Publication year :

Language :
English ;
Abstract :
The symposium explored a series of themes : writings about love, both secular and religious, images of sexuality and sensuality, the law, Byzantine attitudes to bodies and to the senses. The volume begins with an examination of different types of text which discuss love and the passions, and from there moves on to the writings of the Church Fathers on different aspects of these topics. The final three sections focus more closely on the actual physical body. They look at different ways in which Christian, especially saintly, bodies were perceived and used, and at depictions of erotic bodies, and ask how the evidence might offer accounts of 'deviant' bodies. ;
