Let it fake bleed: medieval objects and vegan meat substitutes
Lecture by Kathryn Rudy
Held online by the University of St Andrews on 23 March 2021
What do animated medieval crucifixes have to do with Greggs’ vegan sausage rolls? In this illustrated talk, medievalist Kathryn Rudy considers diverse approaches to fake blood and flesh. Ideas to be discussed include jousting vegetarians, shepherdess pies, and medieval roasts served under a layer of feathers.
