'Alexander Nagel reminds us, throughout the skilful weave of his argument, that there is much more medievalism in the art of the present, and much more contemporaneity in the art of the distant past, than we often realise' - Independent
'A wide-ranging bravura display of intellectual erudition and exemplary curiosity' - The Spectator
'A rich and important contribution to modernist studies, amply demonstrating that our age has got the medievalism it deserves' - The Art Newspaper
