The Middle Ages is not only a period of Romance, but of legends, tales, and mysteries. In this course, Professor Thomas F. Madden guides listeners through the most famous and enduring narratives of medieval Europe. Beginning with King Arthur, Professor Madden peels back layers of exaggeration and fiction to lay bare the historical basis for the mythical king. Madden then examines myths of the medieval church, sexual myths of the Middle Ages, and myths about Robin Hood and the Shroud of Turin, all the time imparting an understanding of just what medieval people thought about their planet.

Entertaining And Enlightening
I don't know if this lecture comes in text, but it's has a personal touch with Thomas Madden delivering his own material.
I feel like Madden covers a range of Medieval myths, some that I've wondered about since childhood.
The first section about King Arthur. From movies to video game, I've been enamored with the idea of Arthur and the Sword in the Stone.
Absolutely while clicking away at my computer.
I look forward to additional content from Thomas Madden. Fantastic storyteller.
