Divine Ventriloquism in Medieval English Literature : Power, Anxiety, Subversion Hardback
by M. Hayes
Part of the The New Middle Ages series
A study of medieval attitudes towards the ventriloquism of God's and Christ's voices through human media, which reveals a progression from an orthodox view of divine vocal power to an anxiety over the authority of the priest's voice to a subversive take on the divine voice that foreshadows Protestant devotion.
