This is such a niche topic and I was delighted that there was a program about it. Sabry Amroussi has such enthusiasm when he presents his topic. Thought I knew a lot about it, but he added some new insights that I was unaware of before.
This is a really excellent lecture delivered with great energy -- and offers a chance to see rare and exquisite objects. But Prof. Ambroussi goes beyond all that to explain the draw of these objects: real, fake, or stand-in.
Mr. Amroussi showed a range of medieval relics from Roman times till the 13th century and beyond, They were beautiful, and of real social and political interest, revealing how the church connected intensely with the people during the medieval period in Europe.
This was an extremely entertaining and informative conversation!
Always new subjects and always original and a great sense of humour
