About-

The mythic world of Juno, Jupiter's consort, is one of flesh and begetting, of suffering and death, and of poetry itself. Exploring the relationship between that realm of the classical gods and the sphere of medieval mythographers, Jane Chance illuminates the efforts of medieval writers to understand human existence and the forces of nature in relation to Christian truth.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Fascinating as an exercise in mapping out a major current in the Western intellectual tradition . . . Brilliant in its ability to make extremely complex ideas comprehensible.”

Julian Wasserman, Loyola University in New Orleans



“A Singular contribution to humane scholarship; it represents the most coherent and inclusive attempt to account for the reception of classical myth from the fifth to the thirteenth centuries.”

J. Stephen Russell, Hofstra University
