Reflections from A Distant Mirror


Plague, political upheaval, the looming prospect of another civil war… what century are we in?

To retain historical perspective, and to find inspiration in how humanity has recovered from far greater upheavals in the past, we turn to Barbara Tuchman’s classic work, A Distant Mirror: The Calamitous 14th Century

What we find in the late Middle Ages is a vision of hell, along with overwhelming evidence that the best of humanity can endure the worst.

I hope you love the episode.
