Trees and Religion in Early Medieval England with Michael Bintley

We know that trees were a fundamental part of early medieval society, technology, and culture, but how did pagan communities preserve and adapt their thinking about trees in the face of increasing Christian missionary activity? This week, Danièle speaks with Michael D.J. Bintley about the evolving role of trees in early medieval England.

Michael D.J. Bintley is an Associate Professor in Medieval English Literature, where his research focuses on the connections between nature and religion in the Middle Ages. Click here to view his university webpage. This talk features his book Trees in the Religions of Early Medieval England.
