Introducing the Medieval Fox

A wide-ranging account of the fox in medieval culture.

By turns enchanting and erudite, Introducing the Medieval Fox traces the cultural history of the sly vixen back to its source in early modern Europe. Through fables and stories about the fox’s cunning escapades across epic poetry, bestiaries, paintings, statues, and stained glass, Paul Wackers offers the broadest introduction to the fox’s role in medieval culture.
