What, in the world, is medievalism?

This was the cadre for my lecture on "What, in the World, is Medievalism?", the magnificent music room at Harvard University's Dumbarton Oaks Research Library & Museum in Washington, DC. The lecture provided a framework for Jan Ziolkowski's Juggling the Middle Ages exhibit, which provides a comprehensive reception history of the Juggler of our Lady narrative from its high medieval beginnings through the present.
