Covering and Discovering the Body in medieval theology, drama and literature

Defense Thèse de doctorat : Univ. Genève, 2015 - L. 832 - 2015/05/29
Abstract This thesis examines the relationship between clothing and embodiment and how this relationship might be constructed in medieval texts. The central argument of the work is that clothing is meaningful beyond social and cultural parameters. As such, clothing must be considered in relation to more intimate facets of the embodied condition, i.e. the pertinent boundaries which define both physical and metaphysical beliefs attributed to a particular body. The title of the work, Covering and Discovering the Body, is intended to draw out the interplay between clothing's practical, material function, and its ability to make apparent more subtle, intimate aspects of that body.
