On 11 August 1239, King Louis IX walked barefoot, & led a sacred precession of the Crown of Thorns to honour his acquisition. The Sainte-Chapelle, designed to enshrine the relic, was completed 9 years later- look closely & you’ll see 2 crowns on the towers

Ok, so I cannot stop thinking about this ad. It states your PhD must "not [be] obtained prior to 2016." ....so if you've been on the market for more than three years, UCLA doesn't want to consider you?

Medieval women weren’t uneducated princesses in towers. They read. They wrote. And they became literary giants. interviews for Part 13 of Gender, Sexism, and the Middle Ages.

Originally in Canterbury, Church of the Holy Cross, St Dunstan’s Street, Kent, 15th C, now in St. Mary Church, Minster in Thanet, Kent. Top 1/3 is original except filial and ball. Bottom 2/3 17th century. Glad they saved the Gothic portion.

Of course one can't research the late Anglo Saxons, Hastings, and the Norman invasion without knowing a little about the ruler:

Hi with cfp season here, I’ve noticed a lot of critiques here of titles, themes, and citations. My request as a grad student: If you are TT/Tenured, please make sure that you aren’t harshly critiquing a graduate student’s cfp before posting about it.

what translation of Beowulf do you teach/study in undergraduate? I know here in Ireland (and maybe UK?) Seamus Heaney's is the most popular, but it would be great to know what the story is throughout the world! RTs would be great, as this is for a review!

To celebrate we thought we'd take a whistle stop tour through 1000 years of manuscripts in our collections. So here is a medieval manuscripty thread.
