More Description


The art and architecture of the Middle Ages teem with humour. Everywhere you look in medieval creations, there is the most unexpected, crazy and risque wit. From the painting of a poacher roasted over a spit by a rabbit to an image of angels and devils weighing souls and both cheating, Janetta Rebold Benton has brought together some of the most delightful examples of medieval visual humour in a collection that will amuse and entertain anyone with a sense of the ridiculous.
