LIM Professor Tom Ryan publishes article on the Eucharist, laity, materiality, and spirituality in the Middle Ages
The article explores the intersection of the study of materiality, a medieval instance of the sensus fidelium in the eucharistic Feast of Corpus Christi, and the paradox that the bodily senses other than taste and touch can be a means of encounter with the divine. In doing so, the article gestures toward implications for laity, spirituality, and theology today.
