Jack Hartnell is a writer, author, historian, and lecturer in art history at the University of East Anglia, Norwich.
People who lived during the Middle Ages ran into many of the same health problems we see today. The biggest difference, of course, is they had much different – and not very scientific – ways of dealing with these maladies, the way we view the science of our health.  Jack Hartnell, lecturer in art history at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the physical body in the medieval worldview and the fantastical tales created to justify medicinal practices. His book is called “Medieval Bodies: Life, Death and Art in the Middle Ages.”
