It all began with a Symposium, Tech Gets Medieval, in 2012, during which we gathered to see if medieval culture might have a place at one of the nation's premier tech universities. Then, in 2013, we received funding from the Provost's Office for a GT Fire project, Past Present: Resonances of Medieval and Early Modern Culture in Atlanta. And in 2014, we hosted the 29th International Congress on Medievalism at Georgia Tech. Interested in joining us? Get in touch.
Medieval Atlanta's Chrissy Spencer will be part of the cast for this year's Atlanta Camerata Theater's The Play of Herod, which has come down to us in a manuscript produced around the year 1200. The play is sung in Latin, with English translations projected above the action. A consort of viols, recorders, krumm horn, hurdy-gurdy, and percussion accompanies the singers, i.e., an excellent example of the reenactment, recreation, and re-present-ation of medieval culture in contemporary Atlanta.
