Description

The Quick and the Dead: Life and Death in the Middle Ages
Today, death is largely restricted to nursing homes or hospitals, but it was not so in medieval times. With death such an omnipresent part of life, medieval people dealt with the reality of their mortality not only by taking
refuge in Christian doctrine, but also by enjoying their allotted time on Earth to the fullest.

Witch Mania: The Witch-hunting Hysteria of the Renaissance
The fire of the witch-hunters blazed hungrily through western Europe between 1591 and 1610. Over 500 people were burned as witches in the Vaud district of western Switzerland, and a French witch-hunter named Bouget
boasted of having sent more than 600 witches to the stake in Burgundy.

In Search of the Blood Countess
Almost 400 years after her death, the case of Countess Elizabeth Báthory remains a source of contention. She was alleged to have tortured and murdered some 650 girls in order to bathe in their blood, a ritual she
believed would keep her forever young. But how much of the story is truth and how much is exaggeration or, worse, downright fabrication?

Black Bird: The Arbiter of Style
If you have ever eaten asparagus or started your meal with soup and ended with dessert, or ever used toothpaste or styled your hair with bangs, you owe a debt of gratitude to one of the greatest black
musicians in history: Ziryab, or 3 Black Bird, 2 who charmed the ninth-century Spanish royal court at Cordoba with his songs.
