Join Peter Hahn for a conversation on “1066, the Year of the Conquest. How a Papal Banner changed a culture and the English language.” Outraged at being denied the crown of England, Duke William of Normandy rallied his armies for what would become the last invasion of those “sceptered isles.” With skillful diplomacy, he obtained the blessing of Pope Alexander II and the right to fly the Pope’s colors into battle. How did the papal support affect the outcome of the famous Battle of Hastings? This conversation explores that.

    Hi, Peter. Susan Perry here. I am listening to all the podcasts from St. David's. It is a welcome break from my Montessori training assignments. I love to hear your voice. I enjoyed listening to you tell about the Battle of Hastings. The historical people came to life! Thank you.
