CEU Medieval Radio proudly presents this week’s ‘Past Perfect!’ (July 9-10, 14 ) featuring UCLA’s Prof. Emerita Marianne D. Birnbaum, who will talk about the literature produced by renaissance Hungarian poets such as Janus Pannonius and Bálint Balassi and allow some insight into Jewish living in the early modern period by discussing the extraordinary life of Gracia Mendes. In this episode Prof. Birnbaum and Chris also take an intellectual detour from the Middle Ages while talking about Moses Mendelssohn and Jewish enlightenment in the 18th century.
Past Perfect! is CEU Medieval Radio’s show on medieval and early modern history and culture in association with Civil Radio FM98, where Christopher Mielke casually discusses with his guests anything medieval from Alcuin to zooarcheology.
