Críticas:

"A charming gift for all cat-loving historians. . . . Though a fun read, "Medieval Cats "is also a thought-provoking work that allows us to explore the history of people ambivalent attitudes toward animals living in their own sphere."--Ken Kurihara, Fordham University "Sixteenth Century Journal "

Reseña del editor:

Images of cats appear extensively in medieval manuscripts. They are depicted as pets, as mousers, in Bestiaries, in marginalia and in other surprising images - for example, depictions of cats in religious iconography. This charming gift book presents a wealth of cat imagery from a wide variety of medieval sources and will have a wide appeal for cat lovers everywhere. The text is peppered with fascinating facts about the medieval view of cats and amusing anecdotes about people and their pets in the Middle Ages, for example: Extract form the book: 'Cats often had full rein of the dining hall, a situation which books of courtesy despaired of, asking that owners refrain from petting cats sitting on tables. They also invaded bedrooms, for which the Boke of Nurture asked with little success that the owner drive out dogge and catte, or else give them a 'clout".
