|[an error occurred while processing this directive]|Author: VANEIGEM, RAOUL Title: 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.
Description: 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.
