Printing, Prophecy & Early Modern Astrology with Jonathan Green

In this episode we talk with Jonathan Green, professor at the University of North Dakota, and a researcher of German medieval and early modern literature. We discuss his work on prophecy and its dissemination during the early modern period, as well as his current research projects. Jonathan Green has written two important books on prophecy literature. The first, Printing and Prophecy: Prognostication and Media Change 1450–1550 (Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press, 2012) deals with the role of printing in the dissemination of prognostications, many of them astrological or based on astrology. The second continues this line o research into the prophecies of Wilhelm Friess: The Strange and Terrible Visions of Wilhelm Friess: The Paths of Prophecy in Reformation Europe (Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press, 2014).
