📙 The Grief of God: Images of the Suffering Jesus in Late Medieval England by Ellen M. Ross — free epub


Between the thirteenth and fifteenth centuries images of a wounded and bloody Christ proliferated in England, appearing in sermons, drama, church decorations, and spiritual treatises. Some scholars see these graphic portrayals of suffering as signs of a new emphasis on Jesus's humanity, while others see renewed emphasis on a terrifying God of vengeance. Ross, however, argues that these explanations have misunderstood the nature of medieval attitudes toward the suffering Christ. Analyzing a wide range of textual and pictorial evidence, she finds that in their encounters with the wounded Jesus--the Savior whose blood nutures, feeds, and heals human persons--medieval believers found the God of mercy and love.
