Exploring: Occupation and Idleness

May 31, 12:45 PM

A first exploratory read through of Occupation and Idleness

From the Winchester Dialogues this is a read through and discussion of Occupation and Idleness, edited from our zoom sessions on YouTube. Written sometime in the midst of the 15th century, this prefigures much of the interlude drama of the 16th century and deserves more attention.
The explorers were Sascha Cooper, Liza Graham, Ruth Evans, Gregory Musson, and Iain Black. The host is Robert Crighton
The only copy we can find online can be viewed here -

Otherwise you'll need to hunt out a rare as hens teeth edition of The Winchester Dialogues. Good luck with that.
