THE ETHOS OF EROS

updated: 
Wednesday, February 5, 2014 - 6:36pm
EMIT SOCIETY (Early Modern Image and Text Society) hosted by Rutgers University

Although the notion of Ethos is not traditionally associated with that of Eros, the various rationalizations of love in Renaissance

'Forever' comes up in discourses of religion, in manuscript and book history, and in medieval and early modern conceptions of time.
