Medieval Science

EPISODE 74

MEDIEVAL SCIENCE

with Seb Falk

In the so called ‘Dark Ages’, it wasn’t all flat-earthers and biblical literalists. In fact, there were very few such people. There was a rich tradition of rational, even scientific, pursuit.

Seb Falk is a historian of medieval science and medicine. His first book, The Light Ages (2020), is a wide-ranging history of medieval science, told through the life of an extraordinary monk, John of Westwyk. At each stage of John’s adventurous life as a novice and exile, crusader and inventor, we learn what he learned, seeing that the Middle Ages were far more advanced than is often assumed. The Light Ages was a Book of the Year 2020 in the United Kingdom in The Times and The Telegraph.
