Astrology, Alchemy and Medieval Culture with Michael A. Ryan
In this episode we talk to Michael Ryan, associate professor of medieval and early modern history at the University of New Mexico. Michael research interests include the intersection of magic, science, and religion in the premodern world. In the podcast we discuss his book, A Kingdom of Stargazers: Astrology and Authority in the Late Medieval Crown of Aragon (Ithaca, NY: Cornell University Press, 2011), as well as his current research on alchemical manuscripts and charlatanry and magical-themed fraud in the later Middle Ages.
