Today, I bring you ten more books. Books that formed my academic imagination. I largely focused in medieval studies and theological interpretation of art, which should lend some explanation for the bend of these texts. If you're an academic, which books formed you? Have you read any of these?
- The Lamb of God by Sergius Bulgakov
- Mother of God: A History of the Virgin Mary by Miri Rubin
- Mervelous Signals: Poetics and Sign Theory in the Middle Ages by Eugene Vance
- The Lady and the Virgin: Image, Attitude, and Experience in Twelfth-Century France by Penny Schine Gold
- Evolution of Medieval Thought by David Knowles
- The Study of the Bible in the Middle Ages by Beryl Smalley
- I See Satan Fall Like Lightning by René Girard
- Aristotle: Poetics by Aristotle
- Purity and Danger: An Analysis of Concepts of Pollution and Taboo by Mary Douglas
- Jesus as Mother: Studies in the Spirituality of the High Middle Ages by Caroline Walker Bynum
