‘The Childhood of Christ’

With Rob Grout

In this podcast, Melissa Raine, an Honorary Associate Investigator with the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, and Rob Grout, a PhD candidate at the University of York, examine medieval childhood and emotions in their discussion of the fifteenth-century poem, ‘The Childhood of Christ’. This poem survives in a manuscript owned and compiled by Robert Thornton. It is now housed in the British Library
