For this 67th edition the fair has moved to new 15.000 m² quarters at Brussels Expo where close to 15,000 objects will be on display. BRAFA's exhibitor selection process is rigorous, and all objects are verified by an international committee of over 100 experts before the fair opens its doors to the public.

In the early part of the last decade a mysteriously unidentified individual by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled the world's first digital coin – Bitcoin. In the intervening years words like “blockchain” and “cryptocurrency” spawned claims that this revolution in currency would free millions of people from the current financial systems. Are the claims of the crypto enthusiasts all that they're cracked up to be? Well, not really. Cryptocurrencies and the coming central bank digital currencies are just one part of what I call the Money Game, which is an elaborate con game that's been going since the Middle Ages! Whether it is paper or digital money, the definition, understanding and very nature of money is no longer what it once was. These days everyone simply accepts that money is a necessary feature of life on this planet. But what if it could be otherwise? What would our world look like without money? Does the size of your bank balance mean you've arrived spiritually? How do spiritual traditions view money? And finally, is money tied up with power and sex?

Who was thought to be a witch in the Middle Ages? If you're an adult independent woman and don't have any additional financial support, this would've qualified you as a witch several centuries ago. But it was considered a bad sign for both men and women to be too poor. Homeless people and beggars were often accused of being witches. Anybody who didn't like people wandering around the neighborhood asking for food and money could rat them out to the authorities as witches. So has it ever come to your mind that you'd make a great witch? Let's check whether people in the 17th century would've agreed with you.

"There's been an assumption that any person who stepped foot on French territory in the metropole went free. In fact, enslaved Turks did not go free; they often spent their entire lifetime in servitude." Since the Middle Ages, France's legal tradition as a “Free Soil” state meant that any enslaved person who stepped foot in Continental France would be freed. This led to the widespread misconception that there were no slaves in France after the 14th century. However, galley slavery was still a common and even glorified practice centuries later during the reign of Louis XIV. These people, called turcs or Turks, were often Muslim men who had been captured or purchased. Representations of galley slaves adorned paintings, artillery, medals, and other objects, and were used to express the king's power. In this episode, art historian Meredith Martin and historian Gillian Weiss discuss their multidisciplinary study of 17th-century galley slavery and its depictions under Louis XIV. They are authors of the recent book The Sun King at Sea: Maritime Art and Galley Slavery in Louis XIV's France from Getty Publications.

Despite the Talmud being the richest repository of medical remedies in ancient Judaism, this important strain of Jewish thought has been largely ignored – even as the study of ancient medicine has exploded in recent years. In a comprehensive study of this topic, Jason Sion Mokhtarian recuperates this obscure genre of Talmudic text, which has been marginalized in the Jewish tradition since the Middle Ages, to reveal the unexpected depth of the rabbis' medical knowledge. Medicine in the Talmud: Natural and Supernatural Therapies Between Magic and Science (U California Press, 2022) argues that these therapies represent a form of rabbinic scientific rationality that relied on human observation and the use of nature while downplaying the role of God and the Torah in health and illness. Drawing from a wide range of both Jewish and Sasanian sources – from the Bible, the Talmud, and Maimonides to texts written in Akkadian, Syriac, and Mandaic, as well as the incantation bowls – Mokhatarian offers rare insight into how the rabbis of late antique Babylonia adapted the medical knowledge of their time to address the needs of their community. In the process, he narrates an untold chapter in the history of ancient medicine. Rachel Pagones is an acupuncturist, educator, and author based in Cambridge, England.

Questions Covered: 01:15 – The Bible is called the word of God. Jesus is also called the Word of God. What is the difference between them? I have heard one person argue that because the Bible and Jesus are the Word of God and the Word of God is God, the Bible is also God. I know most people don’t believe this, but using the same word for each is kind of confusing. Why are both the Bible and Jesus each called the word of God, and what is the difference between them?  12:25 – Reading church history, one thing that is clear to me from the early fathers on up is that bishops were not allowed to move dioceses–a bishop was elected to one diocese and he stayed there till death. This was even inserted into the canons of Nicaea and observed throughout the Middle Ages. Sometime between the end of the Middle Ages and today this changed, because now Bishops are routinely transferred from one diocese to the next. I don’t know when this happened or why and I would like to know what made the Church change its thinking here.  18:25 – From a Catholic perspective, what is the proof the Bible is both inspired and inerrant?  22:30 – In the interest of a family member that wants their ashes spread in the mountains, I really need to know if Church teaching/Canon law would allow me to enter a portion of the ashes. I'd like firm information to go on, please!  30:30 – What will the new heaven and earth be like?  34:15 – How important is it for Catholics to obtain a plenary indulgence (corporal works of mercy) and offer to the poor souls in purgatory? I never hear apologists’ comment, condone, or approve of this practice.  40:12 – My 13-yo would like to know that if the Catholic Church is built on faith, and God was scientifically proven to exist, would we still need the Church?  48:55 – What might life have been like if not for the Fall?  51:10 – If the Holy Spirit is needed to believe in Jesus, How did the apostle believe in Jesus if the Holy Spirit hadn’t descended yet until Pentecost?  52:50 – If there were other fallen intelligent species on Earth (Sasquatches, whatnot), would Christ's death have saved them too?  …

Room service. An oversized bed seemingly made of clouds. Breathtaking views through wall-sized windows. Zippy elevators. Friendly, efficient bellhops. And three magical words: Gourmet breakfast included. These are the things of which a first-rate hotel stay is made. The idea of a place to lay your head while away from home has been around for millennia: When the Greeks and Romans developed thermal baths, they also built accommodations for visitors to spend the night after a recuperating soak.  What we would recognize as an inn became common in Europe during the Middle Ages. Rustic but homey, they provided lodging, food, and stables for horses. Fast forward to the industrialists of the 19th century, and boom! now we've got grand hotels designed to cater to guests' every whim. Laundry service? Of course. Space for entertaining? Naturally. And oh, free soap! In this episode, we take a quick romp through hotel history and imagine what it might have been like to visit a luxurious hotel during its 20th-century heyday. Then we discuss so many books that transported us to hotels on the page. There are haunted rooms and murderous mischief, people falling in love and settling scores, history-making events and intimate drama, plus plenty of opulent furnishings and white-glove service.
