The most common genre of medieval literature - a heroic songs (chansons de geste). The implication was that it was a solid gesture affects the whole person as a whole, which is the external manifestation iforis), allows you to manifest the inner movements (intus) soul. And should distinguish gestures (gestus) and gestures (gesticulatio), that is, all sorts of antics and grimaces, reminiscent of the devil. Here, the internal stress is felt again.

It was going on and condemnation of the theater.
