  • Title: Seeing and Believing: The Suspicion of Sight and the Authentication of Vision in Late Medieval Art [Late medieval art and visionary theology both reveal an ambivalence about the role of corporeal sight in religion. A desire for direct vision of the divine was coupled with skepticism about claims to bodily sight. Images that aped bodily experience, especially in Flemish art, also gave some theologians cause for concern. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
