"Refreshingly eccentric ... an engrossing tale" — Kirkus Reviews
White supremacists have ‘weaponized’ the Middle Ages, brandishing medieval symbols on their signs and shields.
Two Yale grad students, Molly Isaacson and Quinton Quick, fight neo-Nazis on the battlefield of propaganda. Armed only with a mysterious manuscript and their knowledge of medieval history, they set in motion a plan to disrupt and derange the Alt-Right for years to come.
The Medievalist is a fictional response to the real-life threat from contemporary neo-Nazis. Set in today’s America, the novel is chock full of real history, yet resonates with present-day issues: the dangers of racism and white supremacy, the uses and abuses of the past, and the responsibilities of academia.
