Loading...

Barbara Walters interviews with multi-talented church woman about her life and her miraculous visions. As well, Hildegarde talks about her music writing, her church writing, the church, and her surprisingly modern view of sex. Elsewhere on the medieval TV dial we'll catch Falconry for sports fans, witch burning tips for your kids, plus a chat line for women who want big chests to attract men with... big chests full of dowries.

History Bites: Episode 51 Between Me and My Calvin

Loading...
A skit comedy show that explores the premise, "What if television had been around for the past 5,000 years?" Each episode channel surfs through a particular day in history and the result is a history lesson hidden inside a clever spoof of TV. In this episode, Protestantism proves that it can be just as intolerant, narrow-minded, and politically motivated as the Catholic Church it was trying to replace. Judge Judy listens to both sides of a court case involving John Calvin and a French scholar who wants to be part of the new Protestant movement. Elsewhere on the Protestant dial there's teenage angst on "Dawson's Creek" and on "Law and Ordinances", a Catholic is charged with harbouring saints.

English Goes Underground

Loading...
"With the Norman invasion, English became a third language in its own country, behind French and Latin. In this program, Melvyn Bragg examines the impact of Old French on the development of English. Manuscripts, tapestries, and dozens of curious etymologies help illustrate a tremendous influx of vocabulary pertaing to romance, chivalry, and, of course, food. The influence of Eleanor of Aquitaine's partronage is heard in works of poets and troubadours as the cult of courtly love flourished in England." --Container.

The Battle for the Language of the Bible

"In late medieval England, English quietly ousted French in law and government, but the move to make it God's language meant bloodshed.

Location footage and original manuscripts illustrate key figures and events, such as John Wycliffe, the Lollards, and the first English Bible; William Langland's Piers Plowman; Henry V's official letters, the role of the Chancery or the English civil service; William Caxton's printing press; William Tyndale's translation; and the King James Bible."--Container.
