During the Middle Ages, the church was at the very heart of European society, but how did ordinary people interact with it in their daily lives? This week, Danièle speaks with Nicholas Orme about the churchgoing experience of everyday medieval people, how it changed over time, and what it was like to attend a medieval mass.
Nicholas Orme is Emeritus Professor of History at the University of Exeter. Click here to view his university webpage. He is the author of many books, including Medieval Schools, Medieval Children, and most recently, Going to Church in Medieval England, published by Yale University Press.
