Medieval Cats von Kathleen Walker-Meikle
Keine aktuelle Diskussion zu diesem Buch.
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, "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 dryve out dogge and catte, or els geve them a clout."
