'Only a gallimaufrey of this kind could pay proper tribute to the abundance of Terry Jones's medieval interests. Here are serious engagements with areas of history he opened up to dispute: studies of sex and satire and pacifism, a pilgrim biography that Chaucer overlooked, advice on Monty Python and the Holy Grail as a teaching aid, and a piece on limbless warriors entitled 'Legs and the Man.'' - Helen Cooper, Magdalene College, Cambridge University
'That a group of medievalists should have managed to respond to so many aspects of the life and achievements of Terry Jones is remarkable in itself, but just as remarkable is the quality of the dialogue to which his challenging work, as artist and historian, gives rise. The consistently excellent studies that make up this gesture of friendship and admiration reveal Jones as the cause of wit in others in a way that will surely give him pleasure.' - Winthrop Wetherbee, Cornell University
