In this podcast we talk with Klaus Herbers, Professor of Medieval History at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität. He is also the First Deputy Director of the IKGF – International Consortium for Research in the Humanities “Fate, Freedom and Prognostication”, a partner institution of the Astra Project. Our conversation addresses the Professor’s study on the medieval world and prognostication. In this regard we discuss the new publication Prognostication in the Medieval World: a Handbook which provides a transcultural overview of current historical research on medieval prognostication.
