London: Leicester University Press, 2001. 2 Disability Christina Lee Disability studies are a relative newcomer in the field of the humanities. Until recently the topic had not elicited much interest within medieval research, but neither had study of the body itself. This essay will compare modern theories of disability with evidence for impairment from a range of sources from Anglo-Saxon England, from written texts to osteology, in order to suggest avenues in which we may want to look at Anglo-Saxon disability.

It is clear, too, that each of the modern models of disability completely cover this passage: there is no reference to any sin that the young monk committed in order to show that his impairment is the result of faulty moral conduct. Equally, in a community that is set out to care for each other, such as the monastery, it is doubtful if the impairment would have any influence on the financial or social position of the young monk and the text does not really discuss what restoration to normality would be desirable.
