Ep. 022 - Interview with Dr. Rachel Fulton Brown - Marian devotion in medieval Christendom

Freed From Feminism Podcast

In this episode, Beth and Theresa interview Dr. Rachel Fulton Brown, a medievalist scholar and tenured professor at the University of Chicago, about Marian devotion in the middle ages. We have been meaning to do an episode exclusively about the Blessed Mother for quite awhile and this gave us a perfect opportunity: we discussed one of Dr. Fulton Brown’s books, Mary and the Art of Prayer: The Hours of the Virgin in Medieval Life and Thought. She gives us a shocking, yet beautiful and inspiring, vision of a culture in which Our Lady was as present as the air we breathe and fundamental to interpreting the Catholic Faith in every day life in medieval Christendom. We had significant technical issues during the recording of this podcast, and thus the episode has been heavily edited and in fact is cut quite short; usually we wouldn’t upload an unfinished podcast, but it would be truly a shame to lose, as you will hear, the amazing and inspiring information with which Dr. Fulton Brown was kind enough to enlighten us.  Dr. Fulton Brown's webpage at the Univ. of Chicago: https://home.uchicago.edu/~rfulton/ Selected works:  Mary and the Art of Prayer: The Hours of the Virgin in Medieval Christian Life and Thought: https://cup.columbia.edu/book/mary-and-the-art-of-prayer/9780231181686 From Judgment to Passion: Devotion to Christ and the Virgin Mary, 800–1200: https://www.amazon.com/Judgment-Passion-Devotion-Christ-800-1200/dp/0231125518/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1214338793&sr=8-1 History in the Comic Mode: Medieval Communities and the Matter of Person: https://www.amazon.com/History-Comic-Mode-Medieval-Communities/dp/0231133685/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1214338844&sr=1-2

Episode 5 Part 1: “Mary as Stumbling Block” with Dr Rachel Fulton Brown

Holy Smokes: Cigars, Catholicism, and Conversation

Dr Rachel Fulton Brown joins me to talk about “Mary as Stumbling Block.” Why is the Virgin Mary so important? How were ancient and Medieval Christians able to find Mary in the Old Testament, as they did with Christ; and how do those views stand in contrast to some of the more hostile, modern views of her? Make sure you stay tuned for Part 2, where we will go into greater detail about the link between Temple Theology and Catholic Mariology! Happy Feast of the Queenship/Immaculate Heart of Mary! Most Holy Theotokos, save us!
