In this episode Doctor Nakashian guides us into the medieval world and explores the relationship between the medieval clergy and violence.
From bishop versus bishop on a medieval battlefield in Scotland to various warrior churchmen in medieval England, to forms of literature like ''The Song of Roland,'' the arguments for and against men of god engaging in acts of violence and beyond to praise and condemnation of "holy men" who picked up the club or the sword and fought for selfless or very selfish reasons.
As always we lead through this interesting history by an expert who shows us that the medieval world is even more complicated and less "black and white" than we realize.
