"Cushions, Kitchens and Christ"

Coming January 2022 from the University of Wales Press: Cushions, Kitchens and Christ: Mapping the Domestic in Late Medieval Religious Writing by Louise Campion.

About the book, from the publisher:

A study of domestic imagery in late medieval religious writing.

Cushions, Kitchens and Christ examines the prevalence of domestic imagery in late medieval religious literature. Louise Campion explores references to the home through a range of popular genres, including spiritual guidance, the life of Christ, and revelations received by visionary women. Drawing on a wealth of archival resources, Campion considers how various medieval readers may have responded to the images they encountered as the household increasingly dominated fourteenth- and fifteenth-century thought.
