VANEIGEM, RAOUL - The Movement of the Free Spirit General considerations and firsthand testimony concerning some brief flowerings of life in the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and incidentally, our own time.

Zone Books, New York, NY, USA, 1994. Octavo; hardcover, with gilt spine-titling; 302pp. Dustwrapper. Remainder. New. In this broadly-encompassing work, Vaneigem compares outbreaks of religious resistance in the Middle Ages to the protests against Church and State experienced in our time. In the heretical anti-establishment actions of such groups as the Cathars, he sees parallels - the movement of a spirit of freedom - that echo the resistance to economic and social strictures which seek to repress individual freedoms. This is an ambitious document from one of the world's radical thinkers and a fascinating read, and is further enriched by the translated reproductions of many anti-heretical documents reflecting the state of play between the Church and its heretical opponents of the medieval period.
