Event Details


The Middle Ages are often seen as a bloodthirsty time of warriors, saints and kings: a patriarchal society oppressing and excluding women. Janina Ramirez digs beneath the surface to reveal that the Dark Ages were anything but. In a gripping new talk she explores the lives of extraordinary medieval women from Hildegard of Bingen to the Cathar Spies, casts fresh light on the women behind the Bayeux Tapestry and uncovers some intriguing ‘everyday women’ whose lives reveal fascinating issues of migration, race, gender and sexuality. Join Janina for a brand new talk with material unexplored in her Spring Weekend event.
