Pope Joan: The History of a Myth

April 10, 2017

Was there really a pope named Joan? The historical evidence says —that the story is just a myth. But every myth has a history and the history of this particular myth can teach us a great deal about religion, gender relations, and depictions of women in faith and culture from the early Middle Ages to today.
