A common myth about the medieval period is that no one traveled anywhere, but stayed in the place they were born until they died. This week, Danièle speaks with John F. Romano to find out what travel was really like in the Middle Ages.
John F. Romano is an Associate Professor and Department Chair at Benedictine College, where he focuses his research on the medieval church. He is the editor of Medieval Travel and Travelers: A Reader, which was published by the University of Toronto Press in 2020. Click here to visit his Academia.edu page.
