Do the angels make love? Will the souls of ordinary people feel sexual pleasure in the next world? Heaven and the Flesh explores the relationship between sexual desire and spiritual ascension in art and writing from the High Renaissance to the birth of Romanticism. Clive Hart and Kay Stevenson analyze the work of little-known as well as canonical writers and artists, philosophers and theologians. This wide-ranging and well-illustrated survey offers new and sometimes surprising insights into material both familiar and unfamiliar.
