Today I picked up Irina Metzler's Disability in Medieval Europe (also, parts are available here) from interlibrary loan. I started reading the introduction and at one point she says, "Questions this book addresses with regard to medieval notions of impairment, for example, revolve around ideas concerning the liminality of impairment..."1

Oh how I love the notion of liminality and it fills me with glee when I run across it elsewhere...
