According to a “Traditional” view, there was a medieval aesthetics, which centered around the theories of beauty developed by theologians like Albert the Great, Ulrich of .   Dante Aesthetic philosophy became more concrete and individualistic in the Renaissance. Allegorical theory: staple of biblical interpretation in the late classical and medieval periods Allegory: a way of reading the signs that have been built into the natural and historical world by a God who controls everything and destines it for a specific end.

    For a thoroughgoing discussion of medieval aesthetics, read Umberto Eco's Art and Beauty in the Middle Ages (New Haven: Yale University Press, ISBN ). Eco is known as the author of the encyclopedic medieval murder mystery, The Name of the Rose. Older but more specifically influential in Chaucer studies is D.W. Robertson's A Preface to Chaucer (Princeton: Princeton . Vernacular Aesthetics in the Later Middle Ages explores the formal composition, public performance, and popular reception of vernacular poetry, music, and prose within late medieval French and English cultures. This collection of essays considers the extra-literary and extra-textual methods by which vernacular forms and genres were obtained and examines the roles that performance and orality.

Juxtaposing theology and science, poetry and mysticism, Eco explores the relationship that existed between the aesthetic theories and the artistic experience and practice of medieval s:

It is, therefore, not a book on art history: it belongs on the philosophy shelves under 'aesthetics, medieval, scholastic'. If you DO have an interest in scholasticism, then Eco's work will assuredly open your eyes to some key ideas of art, truth, beauty and their unity.

Barrett. Setting the stage with an account of the vivid aesthetic and artistic sensibility that flourished in medieval times, Eco examines Aquinas’s conception of transcendental beauty, his theory of aesthetic perception or visio, and his account of the three conditions of beauty—integrity, proportion, and clarity—that, centuries later, emerged again in the writings of the young James Joyce.

Medieval Aesthetics. DIVINE INSPIRATION “Ad pulcritudinem tria requiruntur, integritas, consonantia, claritas.” —St. Thomas Aquinas A lot happened during the thousand years between the fall of the Roman Empire and the dawn of the Renaissance, but we tend to lump it all together.

One reason for this is that the bulk of medieval thought was unified by a core belief in God. "James and Peggy Knapp's Medieval Romance: The Aesthetics of Possibility is a subtle and theoretically sophisticated re-interrogation of romance as an enabling genre whose labile aesthetics invites readers to reflect on 'the very nature of perceived reality,' to critique 'the lived experience of social structures,' and 'to deploy counterfactual fiction to imagine alternative potential futures.'Author: James Knapp.

"James and Peggy Knapp’s latest joint scholarly endeavor, Medieval Romance: The Aesthetics of Possibility, is a significant and original contribution to the study of medieval romance, for it brings forth and examines the philosophical underpinnings of a number of well-known and extensively studied romances."

Palgrave-Macmillan. Medieval aesthetics St. Thomas Aquinas devoted certain passages of his Summa Theologiae (c. –73) to the study of beauty. To his thinking, humankind’s interest in beauty is of sensuous origin, but it is the prerogative of those senses that are capable of “contemplation”—namely, the eye and the ear.

One way to understand his book, Aesthetics, is as a more rigorous version of the theory that Bell developed. It’s different, Beardsley would protest, because it’s not formalist. But like Bell, he believes that art is autonomous, separate from other kinds of concerns — cognitive concerns, moral concerns, political concerns and so on.
