The Discarded Image

non-fiction by Clive Staples Lewis


The Discarded Image: An Introduction to Medieval and Renaissance Literature is non-fiction and the last book written by C. S. Lewis. It deals with medieval cosmology and the Ptolemaic universe, and portrays the medieval conception of a "model" of the world. This model formed "the medieval synthesis itself, the whole organization of their theology, science and history into a single, complex, harmonious mental model of the universe."
