MEDIA REVIEWS
'With the blend of erudition and elegance we have now come to expect, Constance Classen's The Colour of Angels does much to restore the history of the senses to its proper importance.' - Roy Porter, Wellcome Institute

'It is a solid and imaginative contribution to both the history of the senses as well as to feminist scholarship from the middle ages up to the rise of modernism.' - Henry Luce, The University of Chicago
