Phillip Campbell joins us for part 2 of our conversation exploring the nitty gritty of the Middle Ages. In this conversation we will discuss lay control of the Church, Episcopal absenteeism, the failure of the two-sword theory; tournaments, jousts, trial by ordeal, whether peasants actually liked the days off as well as relations with Muslims. Join us as we deconstruct overly romanticized notions of our medieval heritage.
