' The Wandering Scholar '
The object of this broadcast is to convey the atmosphere of twelfth-century Europe and the passionate desire for learning which prevailed in those times. The talk, which will be illustrated by readings from contemporary poetry, letters, and by the singing of contemporary songs, will bring to the microphone a broadcaster exceptionally qualified to cover the subject. Helen Waddell is an authority on the scholars and universities of the Middle Ages, and has made delightful translations of mediaeval Latin lyrics. She will tell listeners about the life of a typical
' vagus ' or wandering scholar of the twelfth century-one of those young men who went up to college, gay and confident, and came down to wander over Europe with the minstrels and the tinkers and the dancing bears. You will hear about the games the scholars played, the inns where they slept, the actual letters they wrote home, the songs they sang, the poems they wrote-in short, the sorrows and joys of a wandering scholar and his life on the road.
