Preventing the Misuse of the Medieval Past with Amy Kaufman and Paul Sturtevant

There are those who abuse the medieval past in order to promote ideas of racism, white supremacism, and other toxic ideologies. To counter these views, Amy S. Kaufman and Paul B. Sturtevant have written The Devil’s Historians: How Modern Extremists Abuse the Medieval Past. They join Danièle on The Medieval Podcast to talk about their work and how the Middle Ages was more diverse, compelling, and complex than is often portrayed in mass media.
