In the Middle Ages, making it to Sainthood was a tedious process. Though, being murdered in the Canterbury Cathedral was a good starting point.
In this episode of the Medieval Grad Podcast, Lucie Laumonier interviews Tristan Taylor, a PhD candidate in English at the University of Saskatchewan. Tristan’s research looks at the so-called South English Legendaries, a collection of saints’ lives drafted from the thirteenth century.
