Am y llyfr

Yn ystod y blynyddoedd diweddar, bu diddordeb cynyddol yn y modd y mae emosiynau dynol wedi cael eu teimlo, eu cyfleu a’u hysgogi mewn ieithoedd gydol hanes. Mae'r gyfrol hon yn astudio iaith emosiynau mewn testunau crefyddol o’r ddeuddegfed ganrif a'r drydedd ganrif ar ddeg, yn benodol felly mewn pregethau, bucheddau saint, arweinlyfrau ar gyfer ymgilwyr crefyddol, ac mewn myfyrdodau a barddoniaeth delynegol. Mae'r testunau'n rai pwysig er mwyn deall sut y byddai darllenwyr, cynulleidfaoedd ac awduron eu dydd wedi deall a deffro'r teimladau o safbwynt ysbrydol.

Dyfyniadau

‘Cultivating the Heart demonstrates how early Middle English religious writings and paintings teach their readers and viewers both to thwart and to embrace affective pain – that is, the interconnected stirrings of love, compassion and sorrow inspired by the redemptive suffering of Christ and the Saints. Framed authoritatively within the latest critical discussion of the history of emotions and affective literacies, Lazikani’s sensitive readings of these sometimes alienating medieval works recover their emotional intensity and illuminate the function of the extreme suffering they evoke.’
-Professor Elizabeth Robertson, University of Glasgow
