Help me out, ? I'm rewriting a medieval women syllabus (x-listed in English and Medieval Studies) and I want more variety in the readings. Geographical scope of the course is Europe and the Mediterranean, but the existing readings are mostly from England & France.

Hello , not sure if twitter is the place for this but I’ll give it a try. I’m a medieval studies major currently searching for graduate programs in medieval art history. My primary focus is illuminated manuscripts. What are some of the programs you’d recommend?

The Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF) at Richelieu is a wonderful library. What follows are step-by-step instructions to share with colleagues/students about HOW to do research at Richelieu, which has an intimidating reputation. It is MUCH friendlier today

Anyone familiar with a Marian miracle recounting how a blind king regains his sight after the swaddling clothes of Mary touch his face? The miracle is copied in two Icelandic MSS (from 1340 and 1700-25) but I haven't been able to identify a source.

Seem to have found evidence of time travel in a small archaeological museum in the Frisian village Hegebeintum. “Glis (ice skate made of bone), horizontally pierced. Dating unknown. Looks slightly futuristic.”

If you look closely at the magnificent windows in the Sainte-Chapelle, it’s easier to distinguish the original c1240s elements from the c1850s restorations. I love the side-by-side comparison of the face of this ‘modern’ king & his ‘medieval’ attendant 👑

Was skimming through some St Ambrose yesterday (as one does) and was reminded that he *really* didn’t like make-up...and women for that matter (Hexameron, 6.8.47, trans by JJ Savage, ALL CAPS added to emphasize the RAGE):

Hey . For writing survey pieces aimed at both a broad general audience and subject area experts (in this case historians of slavery, scholars working in Arabic, Hebrew, etc.). I'm torn about what to do with diacritics and other conventions 1/

Trying : Another week, another job rejection. This particular one stung pretty hard. The silver lining? The rejection email was the first time I’ve been addressed as ‘Dr. Nygaard’ and it actually being correct!
