Podcast: Urban Life in Catalonia in the 14th Century with Jeff Fynn-Paul

In this podcast episode of The Ithaca Bound Podcast, Jeff Fynn-Paul discusses life in Barcelona and other Catalan cities during the heyday of the Renaissance. Topics include the Black Death, and the role of women in civic life.
