This book is based on an in-depth filmed conversation between Howard Burton and Miri Rubin, Professor of Medieval and Early Modern History at Queen Mary University of London.

This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, Cultural Contact, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter: I. Historical Beginnings - From Jerusalem to Cambridge II. Life on the Ground - Hope, human agency and hemorrhoids III. William of Norwich - Fabricating hatred IV. Mother of God - An ambitious project V. Doing History - Then, now and in the future About Ideas Roadshow Conversations: This book is part of an expanding series of 100+ Ideas Roadshow conversations, each one presenting a wealth of candid insights from a leading expert through a focused yet informal setting to give non-specialists a uniquely accessible window into frontline research and scholarship that wouldn't otherwise be encountered through standard lectures and textbooks.
