The medieval tale Le Jongleur de Notre Dame or Our Lady’s Tumbler had been forgotten for centuries, but then was rediscovered in the 19th century. It rapidly became a very popular story, recreated in books, plays and films. Dumbarton Oaks Museum in Washington D.C. has opened the “Juggling the Middle Ages” exhibition to look at the medieval tale and its modern reinterpretation. Danièle is joined by Jan Ziolkowski, Director of Dumbarton Oaks, to talk about the exhibit.
