Bede There, Done That

Episode 2 - Show Notes In our second episode, we take a step back from history to discuss our faith, education, and plans for the podcast. You will learn the random ways we discovered our love of history: with Lilia her interest in history began with learning about Vlad the Impaler (Dracula); and with Jake it started with a trip to a colonial history museum in Deerfield, Massachusetts. Our faith and interest in history grew at the University of Dallas, where we met each other while studying abroad in Rome. We hope this podcast will help others learn about Catholic history along with us. Join us next time as we discuss St. Thomas More. References: * University of Dallas - the Rome program https://udallas.edu/rome/index.php St. Bede the Venerable - A patron saint of historians and a Doctor of the Church, who we reference in the podcast's name. He was a Benedictine priest who lived his life in prayer and study in the late 7th/early 8th century in Anglo-Saxon England. He is most famous for writing The Ecclesiastical History of the English People, which is a foundational work of church history. Eusebius of Caesarea - The important early church historian who set down the history of the church from Jesus to Constantine in his Ecclesiastical History. He also preserved fragments of many texts that are now lost. He lived in the 4th century and was a bishop of Caesarea. One reason his is not considered a saint is that he may have been, at least for a time, sympathetic to the Arian heresy. Raid on Deerfield - This was the famous attack on Deerfield, Massachusetts during Queen Anne's War that Jake learned a little about during a childhood visit, sparking an interest in Native American history. (Correction to the podcast: Deerfield was subject to this one famous raid, not multiple attacks) Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Fine example of 1990s vampire culture.
