A conversation with Scott Bruce about dragons, ancient, medieval, and early modern, from around the world. Where did our “canonical” image of the dragon come from? What other kinds of dragons existed? What did dragons mean in different cultures?
Scott G. Bruce is a Professor of History at Fordham University, where he researches religion and culture in the Middle Ages. You can learn more by visiting his university webpage or follow Scott on Twitter @xuthalofthedusk
The conversation is based on Scott’s recent anthology, The Penguin Book of Dragons (2021), which has a chapter on Byzantine dragons.
I recently spent a pleasant hour talking with the indefatigable Anthony Kaldellis about the history of dragons on his Podcast "Byzantium & Friends." https://t.co/Kmahfb0dYs
