A Podcast Exploring the Wit and Weirdness of Medieval Texts

Support us on Patreon and get the Wonders of the East!

You can now help support Medieval Death Trip through becoming a patron of us on Patreon. For as little as $1 (U.S.) a month, you’ll not only be helping to make the show possible, but you’ll also get an audiobook copy of the Mirabilia Descripta, or Wonders of the East by Jordanus, the 14th-century bishop of Columbum in India (and translated by Col. Henry Yule, whose extensive footnotes provide a whole second historical text providing a 19th-century British perspective on India).

    Hi Patrick,

    I’m going to be starting a masters in Medieval Art History and decided to start listening to this podcast to put me in the medieval mindset and even serve as inspiration for dissertation topics. Thank you so much for this thoroughly enjoyable podcast. It has only made me more excited to study medieval art. Since my program will be in London, do you have any medieval site visits you would recommend?

    Hi Patrick,

    Just so you know, there are legions of devoted fans (well, at least 10’s of us) who hope that you’ll someday have time to continue. With some possible competition from Saga Thing, yours was the best blend of information, perspective and entertaining wit of any of the podcasts I regularly listen to. All things are temporary, and things we like always end before we’re ready. But we can still hope.
