Disabled Touch in the Middle Ages

This lecture will examine aspects of the science of touch and the judicial, cultural, and religious significance of the disabling of its synecdochic representative, the hand. Drawing from such works as On the Property of Things and Middle English Fyve Wittes, the lecture will analyze the intersection of science and spirituality, with a special focus on disabling miracles of chastisement in which sinners lose the use of their hands; the most significant of these miracles were associated with the Virgin Mary, and were frequently represented in manuscript illuminations, stained glass, and other visual arts.
