|'This interesting addition to the growing literature on visual culture at the fin de siècle... an intriguing and necessary interdisciplinary approach... a text that both assembles a rich diversity of material and opens up substantial questions about attitudes to tradition in the early decades of the Third Republic... emphatic and even startling... Consuming the Past makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of how fin-de-siècle France negotiated tradition and [...] performs something of the same function for the middle ages as Debora Silverman's 1989 book on Art Nouveau did for the Rococo.'
- Richard Thomson, The Burlington Magazine
'...well-written...Highly recommended. All levels and libraries.'
'This monograph has much to recommend it to readers interested in both medievalism and the medieval period.'
- Bonnie Effros, The Medieval Review
'Consuming the Past is a well-produced object unto itself. It has rich, clear illustrations and engravings ranging over medieval and revival artworks and documentation, and the voices of the two authors, either by affinity or editing, work well with each other in measured descriptions and analytical narratives. The great strength of this work is the self-stated complexity with which the authors address their task.' H-France Review
'... a well-written and researched study.'
- Church History
'...readable and well structured study... This jointly authored book demonstrates the merits of interdisceplinary collaborations when embarking on the difficult project of widening methodological frameworks to achieve a truly cultural, rather than literary or art-historical study. The seven chapters lucidly juxtapose the multivalent impact of medievalism in France at the fin de siecle.'
