Medieval writers and artists drew few sharp contrasts between religious and secular life. This course will explore how sacred and profane were productively and provocatively mixed in the art and literature of late medieval England. Examples to be studied include Chaucer's Miller's Tale, the Book of Margery Kempe, the Second Shepherd's Play, Middle English lyric poetry, the Wilton Diptych, illuminated manuscripts, panel painting and church architecture.
