How Enlightened!

I was really curious about how John Green was going to handle the Middle Ages. I now have my answer: Very well. (Although Maimonides wasn't actually *expelled* from Spain, per se.) His thesis is that, yeah, the Middle Ages is a bit of a dark age if you're a eurocentrist, but there was the whole rest of the world out there. Very excited to be able to use this in class.
