No advisor was more important to King Henry VIII than Cardinal Thomas Wolsey. He captured Henry's attention with his brilliance and became his most trusted confidant. But when the King wanted to divorce Catherine of Aragon, not even the eloquent Wolsey could convince the Pope to agree. In this edition of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb talks to Wolsey's biographer Professor Glenn Richardson, about the man who was responsible for building Henry VIII's reputation as England's most impressive king but ended up being accused of treason.Keep up to date with everything early modern, from Henry VIII to the Sistine Chapel with our Tudor Tuesday newsletter: Subscribe here >:If you would like to learn more about history, we have hundreds of history documentaries, ad-free podcasts and audiobooks at History Hit >To download, go to Android > or Apple store > See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Does fueling inside the anabolic window make a difference?

Full Text of ReadingsFriday after Epiphany Lectionary: 216All podcast readings are produced by the USCCB and are from the Catholic Lectionary, based on the New American Bible and approved for use in the United States _______________________________________The Saint of the day is Saint Raymond of PeafortSince Raymond lived into his hundredth year, he had a chance to do many things. As a member of the Spanish nobility, he had the resources and the education to get a good start in life. By the time he was 20, he was teaching philosophy. In his early 30s he earned a doctorate in both canon and civil law. At 41 he became a Dominican. Pope Gregory IX called him to Rome to work for him and to be his confessor. One of the things the pope asked him to do was to gather together all the decrees of popes and councils that had been made in 80 years since a similar collection by Gratian. Raymond compiled five books called the Decretals. They were looked upon as one of the best organized collections of Church law until the 1917 codification of canon law. Earlier, Raymond had written for confessors a book of cases. It was called Summa de Casibus Poenitentiae. More than simply a list of sins and penances, it discussed pertinent doctrines and laws of the Church that pertained to the problem or case brought to the confessor. At the age of 60, Raymond was appointed archbishop of Tarragona, the capital of Aragon. He didn't like the honor at all and ended up getting sick and resigning in two years. He didn't get to enjoy his peace long, however, because when he was 63 he was elected by his fellow Dominicans to be the head of the whole Order, the successor of Saint Dominic. Raymond worked hard, visited on foot all the Dominicans, reorganized their constitutions and managed to put through a provision that a master general be allowed to resign. When the new constitutions were accepted, Raymond, then 65, resigned. He still had 35 years to oppose heresy and work for the conversion of the Moors in Spain. He convinced Saint Thomas Aquinas to write his work Against the Gentiles. In his 100th year, the Lord let Raymond retire. Reflection Raymond was a lawyer, a canonist. Legalism can suck the life out of genuine religion if it becomes too great a preoccupation with the letter of the law to the neglect of the spirit and purpose of the law. The law can become an end in itself, so that the value the law was intended to promote is overlooked. But we must guard against going to the opposite extreme and seeing law as useless or something to be lightly regarded. Laws ideally state those things that are for the best interests of everyone and make sure the rights of all are safeguarded. From Raymond, we can learn a respect for law as a means of serving the common good. Saint Raymond of Peñafort is a Patron Saint of: Lawyers Saint of the DayCopyright Franciscan Media

“EVEN THE SMALLEST PERSON CAN CHANGE THE COURSE OF THE FUTURE.“On this episode, we cover the one high fantasy film franchise to rule them all, The Lord of the Rings. Specifically, The Fellowship of the Ring, directed by Peter Jackson released in December of 2001. Yeah, this movie came out 20 years ago (feel old yet?) We talk about how we both liked this movie as kids, but missed so much of what it was about and what individual journeys the characters were on. Looking back on the film we fill in those gaps from past and current experiences that gives us an enriched experience in watching this film again. But one question eludes us. What does the One Ring do other than turn you invisible?Does the film still succeed in transforming the very real landscape of New Zealand into the fictional Middle-Earth? The 5'6” Elijah Wood into a 3'6” hobbit? How about computer generated image from 2001 into the Balrog of Morgoth? Does the cinematography, stage blocking and computer still hold up enough to take us on this journey to Mordor?We also talk about how Peter Jackson's film language fits in with J. R. R. Tolkien's writing. After all, this is the same director that gave us the kung-fu preacher from Dead Alive and gave a handful of audiences nightmares (or laughs) about Orson Wells in Heavenly Creatures. How does a “campy“ director make a film adaptation of a beloved high fantasy series? By not being afraid to get a little silly sometimes.We also talk about the dedication put in by the “size doubles” that stood in place of the principle cast playing the dwarves and hobbits. Sophisticated camera tricks and sets were constructed to trick audiences into believing the varying heights of our characters, but for some of the shots, children and little people were called upon to stand in for the typically-sized stars of the film. We talk about the dedication from one size double in particular, Brett Beattie, and how his co-stars chose to honor him. One does not simply talk about Lord of the Rings. Thankfully, we are joined by Lord of the Rings super-fan, Becky Kralle! She gives us great insight onto the hard labor on the production set, the extensive pre-production on the Peter Jackson trilogy, knowledge on why the Hobbit prequel trilogy wasn't as kindly looked upon by fans, behind the scenes trivia, what we might expect (or be worried about) from the upcoming Amazon series, and some LOTR hot takes!Hope you enjoy the episode!PS - Sorry to any LOTR fans that get annoyed by us calling Aragorn, Aragon. Music is from Triune Digital and audio clips pulled from movies we will be reviewing in other episodes.Artwork by @jannelle_o
Lesley Smith has been the Curator of Tutbury Castle in Staffordshire since 2000. Lesley is well known for her highly entertaining and informative costumed portrayals of a variety of historical characters. I've had the privilege of seeing Lesley's portrayals of Mary, Queen of Scots at Tutbury Castle as part of my 2019 Executed Queens tour and in January 2020 I was at Peterborough Cathedral for her first performance of Katherine of Aragon. I think what Lesley does is completely unique. Her portrayal of women in history, dressed as they would have been, is not a reenactment, rather she brings these women to life through her monologues and it's as if they are standing there talking to you. Lesley kindly agreed to join me and answer questions about the women she portrays and how she prepares her characters. You can also watch this episode on YouTube.

BUY YOUR D2DCon Ticket Here Use the code ArmstrongD2D to get a Solarpreneur Exclusive DISCOUNT!Thanks to our friends at Pi Syndicate for sponsoring this episode! ----------------- Speaker 1 (00:02):Welcome to the Solarpreneur podcast, where we teach you to take your solar business to the next level. My name is Taylor Armstrong and I went from $50 in my bank account and struggling for groceries to closing 150 deals in a year and cracking the code on why sales reps fail. I teach you to avoid the mistakes I made and bringing the top solar dogs, the industry to let you in on the secrets of generating more leads, falling up like a pro and closing more deals. What is a Solarpreneur you might ask a Solarpreneur is a new breed of solar pro that is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve mastery and you are about to become one.Speaker 2 (00:41):What's going on Solarpreneurs, Taylor Armstrong here with another episode. And as usual, we are bringing the heat, helping you close more deals, generate more leads and referrals, and hopefully have a much better experience in the solar industry. Hope you're doing well. We're coming up in the Christmas season in here at the time of this recording, and we got a special episode. Something that I haven't done before, at least not in this kind of format. So excited to run through some gifts for solars. pretty cool episode. I don't know about you, but I love hearing about different, cool, like findings, cool gifts, especially one that pertain to like sales and that can help me just have a better experience in my sales game. And so I'm gonna go through a list of gifts that you can get from maybe your people on your team yourself.Speaker 2 (01:40):You can send it to your significant other, have he, or she pick up these things for you, whatever you wanna do with it. These are all gonna make awesome gift ideas or incentive ideas for your team rather. So let me know if you like these type of episodes. Again, I haven't really done one like this before, so before we jump, it wanted to give a quick shout out and thank you to a couple new reviews. Guys. If you haven't left me a review or shared the podcast, please, please, please. Especially if you listen to multiple episodes, come on, leave a review, go share it with someone. We, we do a lot, put a lot of effort, end up bringing rush content every week. That is the one ask that I have go drop us our review or share the podcast, tag me on Instagram and much appreciation tos that shot me their Spotify year in review.Speaker 2 (02:39):I'm honored to see that I am at the top of few of a few people's lists on the spot wrapped. You don't know what that is. That's Spotify basically summarizing your most listened to content throughout the year. So I'm honored to see Solarpreneur podcasts at the top of a few of those lists. I onto a few reviews. We have a CF Henry 72. He says, great resource. So I'm older, but new to the solar field work for a company who presets appointments, but I'm very interested in doing my own appointment setting. I've jumped to a 50% close since I started listing in the podcast. Super stoked about society as well. Thanks Taylor, and to all your guests. It's nice to hear you guys talk about the things I spend so much time thinking about. See a penny, appreciate it. Keep crushing up. My man.Speaker 2 (03:31):And then we got a sports master 92. I love sports as well. He says I listened to I for the first time last week, my team was in a slump and I made all my reps start listening and we have had a big turnaround that quickly have and will keep recommending appreciate that. So again, leave this review and much love, much appreciation to those that have already done that. That being said, let's jump in into this. Hey, and I'm gonna go through these gift ideas. These incentive ideas order I am kind of doing in them here is generally kind of more expensive to less expensive, higher value to lower value. Okay. So if you were looking to drop some bigger money, don't wanna listen to the beginning ones. If you're looking for the lower ticket items, then maybe skip to the end.Speaker 2 (04:27):And before we jump into these, I will say that all these are gonna be in the show notes. So if you're at the gym, if you're driving your area, whatever, don't worry about writing these down because you're gonna be able to just click the show notes, see links for all of these. It's gonna make it super easy to go check 'em out and go buy 'em for yourself or for your teams. And another, I guess, disclaimer, before we jump into these, they're not all necessarily sales related, but if you haven't noticed in the podcasts or if you Haven been in sales for a while now, there are a lot of aspects of your life that directly relate to how well you're gonna do in sales. If you're not taking care of your body, guess what? It's gonna affect your sales game. If you're not eating right, it's gonna affect your sales game.Speaker 2 (05:17):If you're not sleeping, right, your sales are not gonna be as, as they could otherwise. So keep that in mind as we go through these gifts, a lot of these things have to do with that, have to do with treating your body and just different aspects of your life. So let's jump into it. And the first one is actually sales related. Okay. And the first one I think is probably the most important gift you could give, and that is the gift of sales training. Okay. So number one, go get some sales training in the form of a society membership. Okay? Most, most economical sales training out there super affordable right now we're at 99 bucks a month. You can go and give yourself the gift of education, learn from top floor professionals and get, in my opinion, the best feature we have in the industry.Speaker 2 (06:11):And that is direct feed feedback from other sales coaches, recording self in your presentations and getting feedback sent straight to your phone. Okay. So that's number one, get yourself a society membership. And the other piece of this is just other sales training. So we have the door to door con coming up door, door conference, that's coming up next month. The time that recording in January, and as I've mentioned in the previous few episodes, we have a discount code. It's Armstrong D two D. That is another great incentive idea. Great gift idea. Give yourself the gift of networking and education from the best solar salespeople best or, or sales on the planet. Okay. So that's number one, get yourself some education. Number two, we got a S segue mini, or you can also get a S segue, scooter. Another thing I've mentioned a few times, you follow me on social media or been listening to the podcast for a while.Speaker 2 (07:15):I think having a segue is essential. And for me, it's not, not even so much just the efficiency part. Hey, you're zooming door to door. It's saving me you time. But the other piece of this, for me, it gets me in a much better mindset. If someone throws me off their doorstep, if someone slams a door on me, I know in my head, I'm gonna be happy zoom into the next door of my sway. So that's the dual purpose of it. Get your SEG. I think bees round about 500 bucks for the segway minis. The scooters are more expensive. I think they're 700 to a thousand and I do prefer the S segueway versus the scooter S segueway mini. The reason is, is because I'm holding my, my slicks, my folders, my qualification cards. I'm holding all that in my arms as I go to the next door.Speaker 2 (08:08):If I'm on a scooter, little difficult to be holding stuff in your hands and writing a scooter, maybe I'm just UN uncoordinated, but in my opinion, a little bit easier to have a SEG versus a scooter. So that's number two. Hey, number three, we got an R ring. I think I'm saying that right. Or a whoop band and keep in mind. I do not have, I don't own all these products. I would say probably about half of these on the list. Maybe a little more than half I own and use pretty frequently, but the others I've seen 'em going around. I've had, 'em recommended to me. They seem awesome to me and I'm gonna get 'em soon. So that's why I have 'em on this list. And I think they would make great, you know, gifts and incentives for your team. So number three an R ring, if you have not heard of that, it's a ring that you can wear these round.Speaker 2 (09:04):I think about 300 bucks you wear 'em and they tell you your heart rate. They tell you how much sleep you're getting. They tell you supposedly when you're sick and all these stats on your daily life, they give you, you know, your exercise stats, stuff like that. Pretty much breaks everything down tells you exactly how your body's functioning. And the other thing is a whoop band. It does essentially the same thing, but it's just a band. Now it's a little bracelet you wear. So I list them both. And the difference between 'em and ordering, I think is 300 bucks. And then you pay about six bucks a month to stay connected with a membership. The what band you pay, just the membership, but it is last. I checked about 30 bucks a month versus like the six bucks that you'd pay for the ING.Speaker 2 (09:58):So a little bit give and take, and then just a preference, I guess. Do you like wearing bands or do you like wearing rings? It looks like they both do pretty much the same thing. I don't have either of these. So maybe one is better have to hear from our audience. Hit me up if you have one or if you try both of 'em and you like one better than the other, I think this is super cool. Especially if you are knocking doors or if you're train to be healthier, it's gonna help you major little stats and just a cool product. Cool thing to stay healthy. And especially with the sleep noticing how much sleepy get. Okay. So number four, we got a Peloton bike. Things are dope. I want one soon. I do not have one yet, but I have been on them a few times.Speaker 2 (10:43):So if you haven't seen these, you're probably leaving, living under a rock, but a Peloton bike is just the you know, bikes that give you the exercise classes and a higher ticket thing. I think these started around a thousand bucks. I've for, they're getting a little more affordable, but I've seen these going around in sales competitions has incentives has prizes for like sales tournaments. So I think this would be an awesome thing. Get your sales squad in shape and get your guys exercising or girls exercising for it. The winter at number, this is I think the highest ticket thing on here. Another exercise type item we got here, and that is a tonal it's if you watch sports, you've probably seen these in commercials, LeBron James, and the commercials, but it's basically one of those mirror type video things that goes on your wall.Speaker 2 (11:36):And then it has these arms come out. That's pretty much like a cable system. And then I guess it adds like resistance. You have all these trainings classes on there and you can do pretty much any, you know, gym movement. You could think of with these adjustable, like lever, arms, and then a bench that comes with it. That looks pretty awesome. And yeah, cool item to have. And yeah, this one, like I said is pretty high ticket. These are like three grand. So maybe this is like your top price, top incentive, whatever. Maybe it's your winner incentive for the, the quarter, but I think it's pretty cool item, pretty unique thing. That's gonna help your guys stay in shape. OK. Number six. Sorry to have so many health type items on here, but as you can see, I think health is super important to your success and exercising super important to your success in door to door sales.Speaker 2 (12:35):Or even if you're not doing door to door, anything in solar, it's gonna help you perform better because it's gonna get you mentally in a right space. Okay. So number six is a VI a mix blender. And I think these are essential because you need to be drinking in your grain smoothies. I love my greens smoothies. I'm off and on on 'em, but if you haven't tried a green smoothie, you put all your spinach in there, you blend it up with some fruit and some protein powder and you pour it down. The hatch, vitamin AIX, these things I think are about 300 bucks and the best blender, in my opinion, on the market, another sweet item you can use in your incentives and competitions and number seven, going along with a blend is an ice maker. Okay. And the reason I think this is cool is because when I think of sales teams, especially door to door, a lot of us start out in, you know, apartments, junky apartments.Speaker 2 (13:35):Maybe you got a bunch of like younger guys, like, like I'm on my team right now. We got a bunch of younger guys on our squad. In these apartments, there is never ice. And the story behind this, I actually lived an apartment. You know, my current apartment I'm living in, actually we not have an ice maker. And my dad, he comes out here, gives us a visit. My dad he's super into biking. He does like hundred mile road road, RA races, 200 miles. So he comes out and he notices we don't have ice. We're just drinking straight from the top. And he's like, how do you guys survive? I would die if I didn't have ice. There's no way you can guys are just drinking, water, drinking the top. I'm like, yeah, dad, that's what I've been doing for two, three years now.Speaker 2 (14:26):And I'm just used to it next day. He shows up at our house. He goes on old errands. He brings it back and ice maker says, I can't allow you guys to live. Like he, you man need your ice. okay. So I love having ice now. I can't go back to no ice. So we have a little ice, little portable ice maker, and I've seen some cool ones that are the Pella ice makers. These things are only like a hundred, a hundred to 150 bucks, pretty good value. And I think it's definitely worth getting your sales teams, especially if they're hanging out on apartments, whatever, get 'em a ice maker gonna make 'em happy. And number eight is an e-bike. And for those that let like biking or those that are, you know, biking fans, but maybe not the fastest on a bike, or maybe you need to keep up.Speaker 2 (15:19):I think e-bikes are sweet. It's kind of the new craze. A lot of people are biking around on these things. And what's cool is maybe you went out too far for a ride and you're too tired to get back. We'll just hit on the that's engine or I guess, whatever you call it, battery, turn on the battery and you're flying back home in no time at all. So I'm gonna link to this, but there's a pretty sweet one that's available. I think it's like four, you have four or 500 bucks. So pretty affordable too. Okay. Number nine is one that I think would be super cool for improving your sleep. I do not have this, but I think it would be sweet. It's called a chili pad. What it does. It's basically a pad you put underneath your sheets and it has water, I guess, kind of like a water bed running through and it set the bed to a specific temperature.Speaker 2 (16:15):So maybe you're always hot. Maybe you're selling out in Texas or Arizona and you're always just burning up every night. You can set this pad to be like 60 degrees, cool. You down, or maybe you're freezing, or maybe you're married like myself. Maybe both have different temperatures. You can set the both sides of the bed to be at different temperatures. You can sit. I don't know your wife, boyfriend, girlfriend. You can set theirs to be a hundred degrees and yours to be 50. So pretty cool. Another thing I thought would be super useful to help your guys improve on their sleep. Number 10. Okay. We got five more. We're going, Hey, and this, we could probably go all day, but we got five more and then we're gonna wrap it up. So number 10 is a massage gun. Okay. A lot of my friends have a, the gun, but you can get some pretty sweet massage guns on Amazon for like a hundred bucks.Speaker 2 (17:14):And to me it looks like they're all doing the same. I've used both of 'em. I've used that Aragon that are like 400 bucks. And then I've used a hundred dollars ones. They seem pretty much the same. okay. So I'm gonna wait to one that I think is 120 bucks and it seems dope. So whatever you wanna do, Aragon, we can get cheaper options. And if you are grinding, let's say you're out on a blitz. You're knocking 10 hours, whatever that day, nothing better than getting home and just taking a massage gun straight to the glutes, loosen up those muscles after a hard day of knocking doors or a day where you just ran. I don't know, six appointments. Okay. So that's number 10. Number 11 is something that I think is becoming more and more important. Let's be honest. Most of us are on our phones or iPads or computers.Speaker 2 (18:09):Oh, many hours during the day. If you're like me, you get to the end of the week and you get the notification popping up on your iPhone. This says, congrats. You averaged seven hours on your phone every day. Okay. and it's not like, you know, we're wasting time, but if you're using mocking apps, if you are using sales we're portals, if you are sending texts out to customers on the phone, if you were using your phone to get to your area, you're putting in directions, then you're racking up tons of hours, tons of time on the phone. So what's better to have than blue light blockers. Okay. That's those glasses that you put on. It's gonna block out the blue light and especially talking about the topic of sleep. You need to be blocking out the you know, this light as you're getting ready to hit the sack.Speaker 2 (18:59):Hey I still struggle with it, but if you don't have the routine of just shutting down your devices you know, an hour before you go to sleep, the next best thing is on these blue light blockers. So like 20, 30 bucks, you can get just these glasses gonna block out the blue light for you. OK. Number 12 is something I've been seeing more and more of, especially if you go to a lot of sales conferences like myself that is a remarkable, if you haven't seen these things are basically like an iPad and it's a tablet that you write on, but what's unique about it is it doesn't have, you don't get apps on it. All it is, it's a tablet and you can write on it, that's it. And then it categorizes your notes into different folders. You can access 'em I super, you know, kind of lightweight, portable, durable, so cool thing to have.Speaker 2 (19:56):If you're going to a lot of trainings you don't have to be toting own 20 notebooks, losing them. Then you can easily set up folders. So as I've been going to the knock star events, the door door cons, all that I've been seeing more and more people get these I do not have one myself yet, but I think it is a great, I would love one. So shoot me one. If you're listening, I'll probably get one soon, but I think it would be a great incentive idea or great thing to get as a gift for you. Soul pretty friends, head number 13. You've heard me talk about this before. It, it is a boom, boom stick. Okay. If you have read the weight of the Wolf by Jordan Belfort, you know what I'm talking about here it is these basically essential oil sticks that you can just, you know, shoot up, snort up there as you are getting ready for your appointments.Speaker 2 (20:50):And the idea is that you trigger your senses and it's kind of a form of NLP neural linguistic programming. You're trying to trigger your senses and have that sense of smell attached to the really, just the sense of sick, excess, the sense of you closing the deal. So these things I think are awesome, gets me in the right mood to get out there and sell. You can get 'em in fruity flavors and nothing better than getting you fired up, go out there and sell. So these things are super affordable. You can get a pack of, I don't know, five for, I think 30 bucks, 20, 30 bucks, super affordable. Get one of these today. Okay. And our last two last but not least number 14, we have Nike gift cards or, you know, Adidas, whatever you're into. I was all about the Nikes, but I'll be honest.Speaker 2 (21:44):These Adidas I'm right now I'm rocking the Adidas ultra boost. I think that's what they're called. Yeah. Ultra boost. And I'm a big fan. Have a ton of cushion. Super comfy. Okay. Love Nike. But man, these Adidas ultra boost, they're no joke. So these are always, you know, if you've been in sales, you know, any shoes are just great incentives. Cause we're out on our feet, we're out to appointments. We're out knocking doors. You gotta have some nice kicks. Get that feet that foot support. Okay. And then the last one we got here is a lanyard. Hey, I've been talking with people over and over like, Hey, what do you do? It gets dark so early. Now out here in San Diego where I'm at it is dark by five o'clock right now. And so what do you do? How do you still get people's attention?Speaker 2 (22:36):Still get their trust as you're out there knocking. So I was recently asking a few of my mentors, Danny Pessie Taylor McCarthy. I'm like, guys, do you got any ideas? Anything else you do? So heard this from a people, but that is get a light up lanyard. A and Danny pissy actually told me this. He said, man, just look like a Christmas tree going to their house. They're gonna think you're some WCO nut job walking in the door tonight, join to sing Christmas carols. They're not gonna think you are sewing. 'em Something. So what a better way to grab the attention. They get a lanyard that looks like you're. I don't know, out Christmas, Carolyn. So that is number 15. Again, super affordable. Go and get your sales teams some light up lanyards, throw some name tags in there. It's gonna grab some attention.Speaker 2 (23:24):It's gonna generate credibility because you have your need tag in there and you're gonna feel great knocking in the dark, cuz you're gonna see yourself glowing in the dark as you'll look at your lanyard. So that's my 15 gift ideas for solar, premier or incentives. Let me know if you think of any other ones. Let me know if you appreciated this episode. If you like the gift ideas. I love hearing about gift ideas. I love Christmas and I hope you do too. So don't, don't be knocking doors on Christmas guys. Take Christmas off please. I know you're working hard. I know you're trying to hit your 120 deals for the year, but come on, take Christmas off. So let, let me know what you think of this guys. Share it with someone that needs some Christmas cheer in their life. Maybe send them one of these gifts and we will catch you on the next, on the next episode.

Oy! Abby and Danny's ADoyHD is in full force this episode, as we contemplate whether Catherine of Aragon should STAY in England or GO home! All of her friends and enemies have an opinion to register, except for Edmund de la Pooooooooooool, who has come to Maggie Pole in her time of greatest need (aka moments before and/or after and/or during sending her kids away) and is ready to strike! The entire saga is told in the Tudors classic “All Too Well (7 Year Version) (Catherine's Version).” Be sure to stick around for the post-credits scene to see if Thanos and Henry VIII will finally team up.

This week we head to Granada in southern Spain to witness one of the most important years in the history of not only Europe, but the whole world. In 711 a band of Berber tribesmen made the short voyage from North Africa to Southern Spain, landing near Gibraltar. The land they found mesmerised them with its beauty and natural abundance, they settled down, built cities and were joined by Arabs from across the vast Muslim Empire who made al-Andalus their home. Towards the end of the eleventh century, Christian Europeans began the long process of Reconquista, reclaiming the lands they saw as being rightfully theirs. By the late fifteenth century, only Granada remained in Arab hands and in 1492, Boabdil, the last Sultan of Granada, handed over the keys of the city to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella – the joint Catholic rulers of Spain. We are visiting this watershed moment in the company of Professor Elizabeth Drayson, Emeritus Fellow in Spanish at Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge. Her new book, Lost Paradise, The Story of Granada, she reveals the full wonder of this city's history, highlighting the experiences of some of its minority populations including Jews, Gypsies, women. As ever, much, much more about this episode is to be found at our website tttpodcast.com. Click here to order Elizabeth Drayson's book from John Sandoe's who, we are delighted to say, are supplying books for the podcast. Show Notes Scene One: 2 January 1492, in Granada. Christian and Muslim royalty have assembled for the official surrender of the city to the Catholic monarchs Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castile. Scene Two: Mid-July, 1492, on the road to Cádiz, the route to one of Spain's biggest seaports, as Jewish families prepare to sail into permanent exile from their homeland. Scene Three: September 1492, in the old wood-panelled library of the University of Salamanca. Queen Isabella I of Castile meets Spain's most renowned Humanist, Antonio de Nebrija, to accept his newly published grammar of the Spanish language. Memento: the gold ring set with a turquoise owned by the last Muslim sultan of Granada.

Vinene i dette afsnit er skænket af Kjær og Sommerfeldt. https://www.kjaersommerfeldt.dk/ Smagekasse: https://www.kjaersommerfeldt.dk/produkt/vin-for-begyndere-podcast-spanien-3-flasker Der er store armbevægelser og høje tanker, når vi fra begyndelsen dvæler ved et citat af Seneca. Hvorfor hedder afsnittet ‘Det Nye Spanien' og hvad sker der i landet på vinområdet? Hvilket udtryk får vine fra det hersens nye Spanien? Det er ny vin men på gamle Garnacha-stokke gennemtænkt af Fernando Morra. Det bliver tissetrængende, syret og funky! Også i Madrid står der gamle stokke, som giver vin på nye fade. Smagen er unik, enestående og træder frem som en smag, vi aldrig har oplevet i podcasten før. Det er tannin, grusvej, frugt og urter. Hvad er tendensen på de danske vinbarer - tør de gå med det nye Spanien eller læner de sig tilbage i det gode gamle? Hvad er semi maceration carbonique og intracellulær gæring? Hvordan smager moderne Rioja fra Baskerlandet? Uden amerikansk fad og uden tegn på oxidering - altså hvordan smager Tempranillo i sin rene form? Til slut skal vi på sørøvertogt og høre om ædle drikke fra indianere, hvordan man skal opbevare vin og dekaden 1960'erne. Vi smager på: 1) Frontonio, Botijo Rojo - Garnacha, Valdejalón 2020 2) Rico Nuevo, Vereda de Las Tórdigas, Sierra de Gredos 2019 3) Artuke, Tinto, Rioja 2019 ......................................

Episode Description: On this week's episode, the Duchess of Rutland speaks with Lady Northampton who is a custodian of two historic homes: Compton Wynyates & Castle Ashby. In the show, the Duchess learns how one of Henry's VIII's closest confidants helped build the Spencer family line, Lady Northampton elaborates on why Compton Wynyates is such an architecturally unique place, and we are introduced to the unpublished female poet that was admired by Wordsworth and Sir Walter Scott. Top Quotes: "I'm very keen on creating a harmonious atmosphere in these incredible places. I like to think that I create an atmosphere at Compton where the staff and team there feel like we are all part of one family." - Lady Tracy Northampton "In heritage, it's so integral that you retain the essence of what you are, what you believe in, what you stand for. If you lose your roots as a human being you can't fulfil the role because the role is not true to who you are." - The Duchess of Rutland "When you look at some of these portraits they seem so austere and fixed and far away from how we are now. But they have a soul." - The Duchess of Rutland About the Guest and Stately Home: Lady Tracy Northampton is a trained psychotherapist and yoga teacher. She married her husband, Spencer Compton, 7th Marquess of Northampton in 2013. The couple live full time in Compton Wynyates which is an extremely well preserved Tudor Mansion. Unlike all other homes in the series, Compton Wynyates is not open to the public. Compton Wynyates is a Tudor country house in Warwickshire, England, a Grade I listed building. The Tudor period house is constructed of red brick and built around a central courtyard. Compton House was erected by Sir William Compton c1520, allegedly on the site of an earlier Tudor building. The early 16th century house is now considered one of the best examples of the picturesque irregular Early Tudor style in England. In 1572, Elizabeth I stayed in the house. In 1617 James I spent a night at the house. Compton was also visited by Henry VIII and Katherine of Aragon during the early years of the king's reign. Over the entrance the Royal Arms of England are supported by the dragon and greyhound of Henry VII and Henry VIII. Today, Compton is the home of Lady Tracy and Spencer Compton. In the nearby village, the couple have a pub-hotel called The Falcon they own and run together. Wynates is the birthplace and burial place of Spencer Compton, 1st Earl of Wilmington, considered to be the second Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Compton Wynyates was also the inspiration for Croft Manor in the Tomb Raider series. About the Host: Emma Rutland, The Duchess of Rutland, did not always stride the halls of stately homes. Born Emma Watkins, the Duchess grew up the daughter of a Quaker farmer, in the Welsh marsh countryside. She trained as an opera singer in the Guildhall School of Music, and worked as a successful interior designer before meeting her future husband David Manners, the 11th Duke of Rutland, at a dinner party. Their marriage in 1992 would transform Emma Watkins into the 11th Duchess of Rutland, thrusting her into the world of aristocracy, and handing her the responsibility of one of the nation's great treasures: Belvoir Castle. While simultaneously running the day to day operations of the castle, and raising five children, The Duchess became fascinated with the history and importance of the other stately homes of the UK. Join The Duchess as she embarks on a wonderful journey through time, to learn more about the incredible homes that have defined Great Britain and, most importantly, meet the other extraordinary women who work tirelessly behind their doors to preserve their history and magic for future generations.

The Spanish infanta Catalina of Aragon was raised to be a Queen, betrothed at the age of three to the heir apparent of the English throne, Arthur Prince of Wales. Eight years after Arthur's death, she became the first of Henry VIII's six wives. Catalina's mother - Queen Isabella I of Castile - was the most influential person in her life. Witness at an early age the expulsion of Jews, the defeat of the Moors in Spain, and the triumphal return of Christopher Columbus, Catherine grew up to be an intelligent, highly literate, multi-lingual woman, devoted to her Catholic faith, and a popular, charismatic Queen. In this edition of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb discovers more about the early life of Catherine with two leading experts: Dr Theresa Earenfight, Professor of History at Seattle University and author of a forthcoming biography of Catherine, and Emma Cahill Marron, whose dissertation is focused on the Queen's role as a patron of the arts in Tudor England.

In the Vatican Library, there survive 17 highly personal love letters, written in King Henry VIII's own hand to Anne Boleyn between 1527 and 1528. How the letters got there no one exactly knows - they were probably stolen from Anne to be used as evidence in Henry's divorce trial with Catherine of Aragon. In the second of her Explainer podcasts, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb explores these extraordinary letters that changed history. The podcast includes excerpts from History Hit's newly released audio book of the Love Letters of Henry VIII to Anne Boleyn, read by Matt Lewis, which can be listened to in full here >Sign up to receive our Tudor Tuesday newsletter, here > See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

The Mongols were famous for their ultimatums of destruction and submission. No shortage of thirteenth century states received demands for their unconditional surrender to the Great Khan granted divine mandate to rule by Eternal Blue Heaven. Initially, the Mongol imperial ideology was extremely black and white: you could submit to Mongol rule, or face total annihilation. There was no room for other relationships, for the Great Khan had no allies, only subjects. But as the thirteenth century went on and the dream of Chinggisid world hegemony slipped away as the divisions of the Mongol Empire went their separate ways, the Mongol Khans in the west began to seek not the capitulation, but the cooperation of western Europe to aid in their wars against Mamluks. For the Ilkhanate's sixty-year struggle against the Mamluk Sultanate, the Il-Khans sought to bring the Popes and Monarchs of Europe to a new crusade to assist in the defeat of the Mamluks, an ultimately fruitless endeavour, and the topic of today's episode. I'm your host David, and this is Kings and Generals: Ages of Conquest. The first Mongol messages to the Kings of Europe came in the late 1230s and 40s, accompanying Batu and Sube'edei's western invasion, asking the Hungarians how they possibly could hope to flee the grasp of the Mongols. We know the Mongols sent a number of envoys to European monarchs and dukes, and employed a variety of peoples in this enterprise, including at least one Englishman. Over the 1240s and 50s, European envoys like John de Plano Carpini or William of Rubrucks to the Mongol Empire returned from Karakorum with orders for the Kings and Popes to come to Mongolia and submit in person.While Rus' and Armenian lords and kings did do so, there is little indication that European rulers even responded to these demands. For the Mongols, who seemed poised to dominate everything under the Eternal Blue Sky, there was little reason to adopt more conciliatory language. From their point of view, the Europeans were only stalling the inevitable: soon Mongol hoofbeats would certainly be heard in Paris and Rome. The Mongols treated the European states as their diplomatic inferiors, subjects basically in a state of rebellion by fact that they had not already submitted. Cruel, threatening and demanding letters were the norm, and it's safe to say any future efforts at alliance were greatly hampered by this opening salvo. The rare diplomatic exception was an embassy sent to King Louis IX of France during his stay in Cyprus in 1248 just before the 7th Crusade. There, messengers came from the Mongol commander in the west, Eljigidei, an ally to the reigning Great Khan, Guyuk. Headed by two Christians in Eljigidei's service, the embassy bore letters from Eljigidei. These letters called Louis ‘son,' and had no demand of submission, but mentioned Mongol favouritism to Christians, urged the French King not to discriminate between Latin and non-Latin Christians as all were equal under Mongol law, and wished him well in his crusade. The two Christian representatives of Eljigidei asserted that he was a Christian and that Guyuk himself had already been baptised. The urged Louis to attack Egypt, and prevent its Ayyubid prince from sending forces to aid the Caliph in Baghdad, who the Mongols were soon to attack. Louis, is should be noted, almost certainly had not been anticipating any cooperation from the Mongols; he had been well aware of their attacks on Hungary only a few years before, learned of Mongol demands and treatment of foreign powers from travellers like Carpini, and apparently received Mongol ultimatums for his submission in 1247. Further, a devout Christian, it is unlikely he would have gone looking for allies among “pagans,” even for fighting against Muslims. Still, he reacted well to Eljigidei's messengers and sent a return embassy with gifts with them back to Eljigidei which were to be sent on to Guyuk, while the initial letter was forwarded back to France and ultimately to King Henry III of England. Ultimately, it was for naught. Guyuk was dead even before Louis received Eljigidei's letter, and Eljigidei himself was soon put to death in the following political turmoil. Little is known of the embassy Louis sent back with Eljigdei's representatives, but from the little heard of it through William of Rubruck a few years later, it seems to have achieved nothing beyond meeting Guyuk's widow and the regent, Oghul Qaimish, who portrayed Louis' gifts as tokens of the French King's submission. Following the meeting on Cypress, Louis IX suffered a humiliating defeat in Egypt at Mansura, captured and was ransomed by the newly emerging Mamluks. By the time he returned to France and received Oghul Qaimish's reply, not only was she dead, but the responding letter was essentially another demand for his surrender. This first non-threatening Mongol embassy succeeded only in making the King of France feel like he had been tricked, especially since the new Great Khan, Mongke, sent a letter back with William of Rubruck that disavowed Eljigidei's embassy. It has been speculated that Eljigidei was using the embassy to spy on Louis, as he was wary of the sudden arrival of Louis' army in Cyprus, and a desire to find out his military intentions, rather than any genuine interest in cooperation at this point. His hope may have been to ensure that this new army attacked Mongol enemies, rather than get in the way of the Mongols. The halting of the Mongol advance at Ayn Jalut by the Mamluks, and fracturing of the Empire into independent Khanates after Great Khan Mongke's death left the new Ilkhanate in a precarious position. Surrounded by enemies on all sides, the only direction they could expand not at the expense of fellow Mongols was against the Mamluks, who fortified their shared border with the Ilkhans. Even a small raid could trigger the arrival of the full Mamluk army, a dangerous prospect against such deadly warriors. Yet the Ilkhans could not bring their full might to bear on the shared border with the Mamluks in Syria, as it would leave their other borders open to attacks from the Golden Horde, Chagatais or Neguderis, in addition to the trouble of provisioning an army in the tough, hot and dry conditions of the Levantine coastline, a route the Mamluks secured and fortified. Opening a new front against the Mamluks was necessary, and there were already convenient beachheads established in the form of the remaining Crusader States. A shadow of their former selves, the Crusader states were represented by a few major coastal holdings like Antioch, Tripoli, and Acre, and inland fortifications like Krak de Chevaliers and Montfort, as well as the Kingdom of Cyprus, whose ruler, Hugh III of Cyprus, took the title King of Jerusalem in 1268. The Crusader States had shown neutrality to the Mongols, or even joined them such as the County of Tripoli did in 1260 after the Mongols entered Syria. In early 1260, the papal legate at Acre sent an embassy to Hulegu, most likely to discourage him from attacking the Crusader holdings. Along with information from the Kings of Armenian Cilicia, their most important regional vassals, the Mongols would have had a vague knowledge of western Europe and their crusading history. The Ilkhanate's founder, Hulegu, sent the first letter to the west in 1262, intended once more for King Louis IX, though this embassy was turned back in Sicily. This letter was friendlier terms than most Mongol missives, but still contained threats, if rather subdued. Pope Urban IV may have learned of the attempt, and the next year sent a letter to Hulegu, apparently having been told that the Il-Khan had become a Christian. Delighted at the idea, the Pope informed Hulegu that if he was baptised, he would receive aid from the west. In reality, Hulegu never converted to Christianity, and died in 1265 without sending any more letters. His son and successor, Abaqa, was the Il-Khan most dedicated to establishing a Franco-Mongol alliance and came the closest to doing so. Due to conflict on his distant borders with the Golden Horde and Chagatayids, as well as the troubles of consolidating power as new monarch in a new realm, for the 1260s he was unable to commit forces to the Mamluk frontier. As a good Mongol, Abaqa was unwilling to allow the enemy total respite, and made it his mission to encourage an attack from the west on the Mamluks. His first embassy was sent in 1266, shortly after becoming Il-Khan, contacting the Byzantines, Pope Clement IV and King James I of Aragon, hoping for a united Christian front to combine efforts with the Mongols against the Mamluks, inquiring which route into Palestine the Christian forces would take. The responses were generally positive, Pope Clement replying that as soon as he knew which route, he would inform Abaqa. Abaqa sent a message again in 1268, inquiring about this progress. James of Aragon found himself the most motivated by the Il-Khans requests, encouraged by the promises of Abaqa's logistical and military support once they reached the mainland. James made his preparations, and launched a fleet in September 1269. An unexpected storm scattered the fleet, and only two of James' bastard children made it to Acre, who stayed only briefly, accomplishing little there. Not long after, King Louis IX set out for Crusade once more, making the inexplicable choice to land in Tunis in 1270. Despite his well planned efforts, the Crusade was an utter disaster, and Louis died of dysentery outside the walls of Tunis in August 1270. Prince Edward of England with his army landed in Tunis shortly before the evacuation of the crusaders, and disgusted by what he saw, set his fleet for the Holy Land, landing at Acre in May 1271, joined by Hugh of Lusignan, King of Cyprus. Edward's timing was good, as Abaqa had returned from a great victory over the Chagatai Khan Baraq at Herat in July 1270, though had suffered a major hunting accident that November. The Mamluk Sultan Baybars was campaigning in Syria in spring 1271, the famous Krak des Chevaliers falling to him that April. Tripoli would have fallen next, had Baybars not retreated back to Damascus hearing of the sudden arrival of a Crusader fleet, and was wary of being caught between European heavy cavalry and Mongol horse archers. Soon after landing Edward made his preparations for an offensive, and reached out to Abaqa. Abaqa was delighted, and sent a reply and orders for Samaghar, the Mongol commander in Anatolia, to head to Syria. Edward did not wait for Abaqa's reply, and there is no indication he ever responded to Abaqa's letter. He set out in mid-July, ensuring his army suffered the most from the summer heat, while missing the Mongols who preferred to campaign in the winter. Suffering high casualties and accomplishing little, he withdrew back to Acre. In mid-October Samaghar arrived with his army, raiding as far as to the west of Aleppo while an elite force of Mongols scouted ahead, routing a large group of Turkmen between Antioch and Harim, but was soon forced to retreat with the advance of the Mamluk army under Baybars. Missing Samagahr by only a few weeks, in November Edward marched south from Acre at the head of a column of men from England, Acre, Cyprus, with Templars, Hospitallers and Teutonic Knights. They ambushed some Turkmen on the Sharon plain, forced the local Mamluk governor to withdraw, but with the arrival of large Mamluk reinforcements the Crusaders fled, losing their prisoners and booty. That was the closest the Mongols and the Franks came to proper coordination. Edward helped oversee a peace treaty between the Mamluks and the Kingdom of Jersualem, but the heat, difficulties campaigning, political infighting and an assassination attempt on his life permanently turned him off of crusading. By September 1272, Edward set sail for England. A few weeks after his departure the Mongols again invaded, besieging al-Bira but were defeated by the Mamluks in December. Edward's brief effort in Syria demonstrated the difficulties prefacing any Mongol-Frankish cooperation. The Mamluks were a cohesive, unified force, well accustomed to the environment and working from a well supplied logistic system and intelligence network, while the Franks and Mongols were unable to ever develop a proper timetable for operations together. The European arrivals generally had unrealistic goals for their campaigns, bringing neither the men, resources or experience to make an impact. Abaqa continued to organize further efforts, and found many willing ears at the Second Council of Lyons in France in 1274, a meeting of the great powers of Christendom intended to settle doctrinal issues, the division of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, and plan the reconquest of the Holy land. Abaqa's delegation informed the Council that the Il-Khan had secured his borders, that peace had been achieved between all the Mongols Khanates, and he could now bring his full might against the Mamluks, and urged the Christian powers to do likewise. The current Pope, Gregory X, fully supported this and made efforts to set things in motion, but his death in 1276 killed whatever momentum this process had had. Abaqa sent another round of envoys, who reached the King of France and the new King of England, Edward. The envoys brought the Il-khan's apologies for failing to cooperate properly during Edward's crusade, and asked him to return. Edward politely declined. This was the final set of envoys Abaqa sent west. Perhaps frustrated, he finally organized a proper invasion of Syria, only an army under his brother Mongke-Temur to be defeated by the Mamluks at Homs, and Abaqa himself dying soon after in 1282. His successors were to find no more luck that he had. The most interesting envoy to bring the tidings of the Il-Khan to Europe did not originate in the Ilkhanate, but in China: Rabban Bar Sawma, born in 1220 in what is now modern day Beijing, was a Turkic Nestorian priest who had set out on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem before being conscripted to act as a messenger for the Il-Khan, in a journey which is a fascinating contrast to that of his contemporary Marco Polo. Even given him his own dedicated episode in this podcast series, but we'll give here a brief recount of his journey. Writing his accounts down upon his return to Baghdad later in life, he described how he brought messages and gifts to the Byzantine Emperor Andronicos II Palaiologus, marvelled at the Hagia Sophia, then landed in Sicily and made his way to Rome, having just missed the death of Pope Honorius IV. Travelling on to France, he was warmly welcomed by King Phillip IV, and then on to Gascony where he met the campaigning King Edward of England, who again responded kindly to the Il-khan's envoy. On his return journey, he met the new Pope Nicholas IV in 1288 before returning to the Ilkhanate. Despite the generous receptions Rabban Sauma was given by the heads of Europe, and despite the Il-khan's promises to return Jerusalem to Christian hands, the reality was there was no ruler in the west interested, or capable of, going on Crusade. By now, the act of Crusading in the Holy land had lost its lustre, the final crusades almost all disasters, and costly ones at that. With the final Crusader strongholds falling to the Mamluks in the early 1290s, there was no longer even a proper beachhead on the coast for a Crusading army. The sheer distance and cost of going on Crusade, especially with numerous ongoing issues in their own Kingdoms at hand, outweighed whatever perceived benefit there might have been in doing so. Further, while Rabban Sauma personally could be well received, the Mongols themselves remained uncertain allies. From 1285 through to 1288, Golden Horde attacks on eastern Europe had recommenced in force. Even the new Khan of the Golden Horde, Tele-Buqa, had led an army into Poland. For the Europeans, the distinctions between the Mongol Khanates were hard to register; how could messages of peace from some Mongols be matched with the open war other Mongols were undertaking? All evidence seems to suggest that the western Franks did not understand that the Golden Horde and Ilkhanate were separate political entities. Recall earlier the conflicting letters Louis IX had received in the 1240s, where one Mongol general offered friendship, only to be tricked in seemingly submitting to the Mongols and then receive letters in the 1250s telling him to discount the previous envoys. Together these encouraged unease over perceiving the Mongols as allies, and served to further dampen interest to pursue these alliances. In contrast, the Mamluks had somewhat greater success in their own overseas diplomacy: in the 1260s Baybars initiated contact with the Golden Horde, ruled by the Muslim Berke Khan, encouraging him to keep up his warfare with his Ilkhanid cousins. Sultan Baybars also kept good relations with the Byzantine Empire and the Genoese, allowing him to keep the flow of Turkic slave soldiers from the steppes of the Golden Horde open, the keystone of the Mamluk military. There is also evidence they undertook some limited diplomacy with Qaidu Khan during the height of his rule over Central Asia and the Chagatayids. While the Mamluks and Golden Horde never undertook any true military cooperation, the continuation of their talks kept the Ilkhanate wary of enemies on all borders, never truly able to bring the entirety of its considerable might against one foe least another strike the Il-Khan's exposed frontiers. But, did the Golden Horde, in the 1260s, perceive this as an alliance? We only have Mamluk accounts of the relationship, but scholarship often supposes that the Golden Horde Khans perceived this as the submission of the Mamluks, and any cooperation was the cooperation between overlord and subject. As many of the Mamluk ruling class were Qipchaqs, so the Mongols had come to see as their natural slaves, it may well be that Berke saw the submission of the Mamluks as a natural part of their relationship, especially since he already ruled the Qipchaq homeland. This alliance, alongside never resulting in direct cooperation, was also never always amicable. When the Jochid Khans grew annoyed with the Mamluks, they would halt the trade of Qipchaq slaves and threaten to deprive the Mamluks of their greatest source of warriors. During the long reign of Mamluk Sultan al-Nasir Muhammad, a daughter of the Golden Horde Khan Ozbeg was wed to him, in an effort to cement the relationship after a rocky start to the 1300s. Al-Nasir soon accused her of not actually being a Chinggisid, insulting her and infuriating Ozbeg. Yet the relationship survived until the invasions of Emir Temur at the close of the fourteenth century, when the Mamluks and Golden Horde once again took part in a doomed west-Asian effort to ally against Temur. Ilkhanid-European contacts continued into the 14th century, but with somewhat less regularity after Rabban bar Sawma's journey. An archbishopric was even founded in the new Ilkhanid capital of Sultaniyya in 1318, and Papal envoys would travel through the Ilkhanate to the Yuan Dynasty in China until the 1330s. A few envoys came from the Il-Khans still hoping to achieve military cooperation; Ghazan Il-Khan continued to send them before his invasions, including the only one that actually defeated the Mamluk army and led to a brief Mongol advance down the coast, occupying Damascus. News of Ghazan's successes did spread rapidly, for the Spanish Franciscan Ramon Llull learned of it and promptly sailed all the way across the Mediterranean, hoping to be among the first missionaries to land in the newly reclaimed Holy Land. But upon arriving in Cypress, Llull learned of Ghazan's equally quick withdrawal. The combined news of a Mongol victory followed by sudden Mongol withdrawal must have only affirmed the opinion of many of the futility of taking part in any more crusades with the Mongols. Military operations against the Mamluks mostly ceased after Ghazan's death, until a formal peace was achieved between them and the Ilkhanate at the start of the 1320s. Naturally, no further messages for alliances with the powers of Europe were forth coming, and consequently putting an almost total end to European interest and contacts with the Middle East for the next five centuries.
