Hello everyone, in this episode the wonderful and talented PhD Candidate Robin Reich guides us through the controversial term Convivencia, an inaccurate documentary called "The Ornament of the World" and then slowly turns us to Medieval Sicily and the complicated and fascinating society that grew out of Norman Sicily and especially under King Roger II of Sicily.
From discussing the complications of classifying groups and looking into divisions within various factions the Medieval world as we know it begins to become even more complicated as these Normans blend the Islamic, Latin and Orthodox world.
