Famous quotes containing the word medieval:

    The medieval town, with frieze
    Of boy scouts from Nagoya?
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    The Christos-image
    is most difficult to disentangle
    from its art-craft junk-shop
    paint-and-plaster medieval jumble
    of pain-worship and death-symbol.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    Nothing in medieval dress distinguished the child from the adult. In the seventeenth century, however, the child, or at least the child of quality, whether noble or middle-class, ceased to be dressed like the grown-up. This is the essential point: henceforth he had an outfit reserved for his age group, which set him apart from the adults. These can be seen from the first glance at any of the numerous child portraits painted at the beginning of the seventeenth century.
    Philippe Ariés (20th century)
