These videos seems very popular and so I have collected all of them in one place so people can find them easily.
Some are part of written articles, and essentially walk through the articles and explain what is said. Others are free standing and more elaborate.
I confess that video making is a bit new to me, so these are not perfect. But I have lectured for decades and have a reasonable grasp of how to communicate, so if the technique could be better the narrative seems to me pretty good most of the time.
This is the growth area of the site, so it will enlarge rapidly.
The wonderful picture is by Laurentius de Voltolina (Florence, 1300’s). It hangs in the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.
