Medieval representations of Jesus span from the familiar—like Jesus as the Judge at the End of Days, or Jesus as the Lover of the Song of Songs—to the more unusual, like Jesus as Our Mother! Through the words of medieval people like Julian of Norwich, St. Bernard of Clairvaux, Margery Kempe, and St. Thomas Aquinas, we meet these faces of Jesus and find renewed ways to love the Savior, in the words of St. Augustine, that “beauty so ancient and so new.”

In this fresh and unique monograph, medievalist scholar Grace Hamman introduces the modern faithful to the theological readings, ideas, and emphases of Christians in the Middle Ages. Leads us to deepen our understanding and adoration of Christ by exploring how these Christians meditated on the person of Christ and considering how their approaches can enlighten and revitalize our own.
