227: What was Medieval Catholicism Really Like? (w/ Dr. Samuel Klumpenhouwer)
Show Notes

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I'm joined by Dr. Samuel Klumpenhouwer, an expert in Medieval Catholicism, to talk about the day-to-day realities of what it was like for Catholics in the Middle Ages?

Did the Catholic Church really keep the Bible out of the hands of average Catholics? Was doctrine, dogma, and theology out of touch with Scripture and the history of the Church? Did Catholicism really go off the rails? Was the Reformation necessary?

We tackle these questions and much more this week on the show with a wonderful guest.
