Today in Research

...a Carmelite friar preaches class revolt from the pulpit during a year of crisis. Things get interesting. And I realize that I would very much like to be Natalie Zemon Davis.

Did the ruling class fuck up the Carmelite friar's shit?

Man, I wish I had this stuff from my era. I can just about play with counts claiming ancient charters from kings, but I would really love the stuff where someone in the city streets shouts the scuttlebutt version of the count's genealogy that must have been out there somewhere... To put it another way, that sounds really interesting, I hope it gets to go somewhere we can all see it! Good find.

Those crazy friars, always getting all up in the aristocracy's face with that eschatological shit. I, too, would dearly love to hear more of this story!
