May 20, 2013 Leave a comment
Bryn Jones, a doctoral student under the supervision of Dr Alex Woolf, was recently interviewed by BBC Radio Cymru’s religious affairs programme Bwrw Golwg. Bryn’s research is on the relationship between the medieval Welsh and the Papacy prior to the Edwardian conquest.
Bryn was asked to discuss his current research in the Vatican Archives and Vatican Library. Inevitably in the week of the release of Dan Brown’s new book, Inferno, the interview opened with a question about Dan Brown but it developed into a discussion about manuscript survival, the importance of the Papacy to the Welsh polities and Papal interest in the medieval Welsh.
The interview may be heard here, and begins around 9:55 into the show.
