Description

In 1385, a  bitter feud between two French courtesans came to a terrible head when Marguerite, the beautiful young wife of Norman knight Jean de Carrouges, accuses her husband's enemy, Jacques LeGris, of raping her while she has been left alone. After a long legal fight, Parliament finally determines that God will produce the verdict. A judicial duel to the death will decide the outcome. And the risk is great. If Carroughes is killed, Marguerite will also die.
My guest is Eric Jager, professor of medieval literature at UCLA. He summarizes the story documented so thrillingly in his book, The Last Duel: A True Story of Crime, Scandal, and Trial by Combat in Medieval France
