    Christians and Jews in 13th-century England, with Adrienne Williams Boyarin

    One of the things that’s unfortunately true about the Middle Ages is that there was a mistrust of difference, especially when it came to religion. But what caused a lot of anxiety, mistrust, and tension wasn’t always the differences: it was the similarities. This week, Danièle speaks with Adrienne Williams Boyarin about the ways in which Christians and Jews dealt with similarity and difference in thirteenth-century England.

Entertaining & Informative

This is a great podcast, a very informative and interesting one. Daniele is an exceptional host and an excellent teacher/scholar. Like many, I was stuck in the popular idea of the middle ages which I learned that it is mostly incorrect. I have listened to each episode at least three times and every time I learn something new. This podcast is very entertaining and provides a great source of information for creators. Thank you Daniele and Medievalists.net

Really want to like

I really wanted to like this, I love some of the people interviewed, Marc Morris being my all time favorite. But I could barely get past the interviewer and her PC hangups with certain historical terms. Not sure I can stomach another episode though I love Helen Carr, Helen Castor, Lauren Johnson, Dan Jones. Lots of great guests just not sure it’s worth trying.
