This volume, edited from the proceedings of a unique conference held at Sam Houston State University, offers the reader an independent Texas-style celebration of Medieval and Renaissance culture and thought.

The following essays, drawing from philosophy, literature, music, art, architecture, history, and linguistics, include studies of the portrayal of women in medieval literature and art, discussions surrounding the hero of Paradise Lost, explorations into the thought of Thomas Aquinas, explications of linguistic puzzles in Beowulf, analyses of Shakespeare's plays, considerations of renaissance architecture and instrumental music, and an investigation into the influence of rhetoric on musical composition.
