9780521438056: Corpus Christi: The Eucharist in Late Medieval Culture

This book studies later medieval culture (c. 1150-1500) through its central symbol: the eucharist. From the twelfth century onward the eucharist was designed by the Church as the foremost sacrament. The claim that this ritual brought into presence Christ's own body, and offered it to believers, underpinned the sacramental system and the clerical meditation upon which it depended. The book explores the context in which the sacramental world was created and the cultural processes through which it was disseminated, interpreted and used. With attention to the variety of eucharistic meanings and practices, the book moves from the "design" of the eucharist in the twelfth century to its redesign in the sixteenth--a story of the emergence of a symbol, its use and interpretation and final transformation.

Book Description:

The eucharist was designed by the Church as its foremost sacrament in the 12th century. This study explores the context in which it was created and the cultural processes through which it was disseminated, interpreted and transformed through the 16th century.

Review:

"...the book provides an exceptionally rich body of material and a spirited statement of a point of view important not just for eucharistic but for religious history generally." The Journal of Religion

"Rubin's is a brilliant attempt to grasp the language of medieval religion that gave meaning to, as well as received meaning from, the culture around it...My brief summary cannot hope to convey the richness of material and interpretation contained in this volume." History

"From time to time one comes across a book like this that has long needed to be written. Rubin...has filled an important gap in the study of the Eucharist. What makes the book so significant is her treatment of the Eucharist in its social, political, economic, and cultural context...the most significant treatment of this subject in the last fifty years." Theological Studies

"...a major and valuable contribution to the field." Sixteenth Century Journal

"...a work of such originality, learning and imagination." Times Literary Supplement

"Waste your time reading fiction, if you want, or dull history. If you want liveliness, pick up this history of eucharistic practice....This is a rich history, enhanced with black-and-white illustrations." Christian Century

"Miri Rubin (lecturer in Medieval History at Oxford) has written a penetrating analysis of the relation between religion and society in the West between 1000 to 1500....Rubin has written a 'tour de force' that is a must for any serious student of the High Middle Ages. This student came away immensely instructed, impressed with the vademecum reference quality of her study of the eucharist -- and with several questions....splendid and insightful study." Thomas Finn, Critical Review

"...the reader will likely find the text rewarding, thought-provoking, and worth the trouble." Keith Killinger, Currents in Theology and Mission

Descripción Cambridge University Press October 1992, 1992. Paper Back. Estado de conservación: New. Miri Rubin's erudite study explores medieval culture through its unifying symbol, the eucharist, inquiring into the ways religious culture created a language by which order, power and private devotion found voice. She writes, ''The drama of the eucharist is the drama of human creativity and of human frailty: its force deriving from the tension inherent in human action, between the capacity to construct meaning-laden symbols, and the consequent imperatives of living by them, adhering to them and maintaining their meanings when they become susceptible to the vagaries and vicissitudes of human interpretation.'' Undertaken initially as a study of the feast of Corpus Christi, Rubin's treatise grew to incorporate not only the utterance (the ritual practice itself) but also the language which gave that utterance meaning, constructing a framework that would ultimately govern a culture. A lecturer in medieval history at Oxford, Rubin begins with a discussion of the Eucharist's design and practice (c. 1000), construing its theological and cultural implications amidst both clergy and laity and demonstrating the conditions under which the feast of Corpus Christi came to be. Her final chapters examine the many readings of the Eucharist as symbol amidst mystic, heretic and layman, concluding that while such systems (and symbols) are ''inescapable inasmuch as we share life with others, we must learn how to negotiate liberating meanings within them.''.
