Modern Medieval is incredibly excited to share this week's episode with you about Roland Betancourt's "Byzantine Intersectionality: Sexuality, Gender, and Race in the Middle Ages". We touch upon transgender saints' lives; eunuchs as a third gender; slut-shaming; and so much more! 

 

So brace yourselves, its time to get Modern Medieval!
