Hi students; the quiz for this week is now open. Hint: all the answers to the quiz are contained in the Seb Falk podcast!
I am hoping that this material will help you enter more deeply into the mindset of the medieval writer, and what kinds of attitudes informed their thinking. Everything Seb Falk talks about makes its way, for example, into the Canterbury Tales, and even into the writings of the mystics (many of whom discuss rainbows, comets, and the like). Just as today our drama and literature is formed in a cultural context, so too is the writings of people in every age!
PS: Hope you all have a great Easter weekend!
