Work in Progress THE PAPAL STATE IN THE MIDDLE AGES

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
by Daniel Waley
Because it produced so much paper propaganda-and therefore direct historical evidence-the contest between Empire and Papacy has for long dominated the history of the Middle Ages. But there's more to be learned about the medieval papacy,* says the speaker, ' from a knowledge of how many real swords were ready to be used in its defence than from the fullest understanding of the doctrine of the two allegorical swords.' Dr. Waley, Lecturer in Medieval History at the London School of Economics and Political Science, talks about his preparation of a history of the Papal State in the Middle Ages.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
