Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to the analysis of mental disorder in later medieval Europe. In the medieval context, disorders and illnesses were categorised differently than they are in modern culture. Various forms of mental disorders can be found in medieval miracle collections: epileptics (morbus caducum), the mentally impaired (amens, demens, mente captus), the raving mad (furiosus, adrabiacus) and demoniacs (obessus, demoniacus).

Keywords: later medieval Europe; mental disorder; modern culture
