Item description for Telling Tears in the English Renaissance (Studies in the History of Christian Thought) by Marjory E. Lange...

Tears and weeping are, at once, human universals and socially constrained phenomena. This volume explores the interface between those two viewpoints by examining medical literature, sermons and lyric poetry of the 16th and 17th centuries to see how dominant paradigms regarded who could, who must, and who must not weep. These paradigms shifted, in some cases radically, during these centuries. Without a clear understanding of how the Renaissance "read" tears, it is difficult to avoid using our own preconceptions that are often quite different and quite misleading. The text is organized into five chapters: one on medical and scientific material; two on sermons; and two on different types of lyric.
