History lectures by Samuel Biagetti. I am a historian (and antique dealer) with a Phd in early American history from Columbia University; my dissertation was on Freemasonry in the 1700s. I have recently taught courses at Columbia and Barnard College and have had articles published in Early American Studies and the Journal of Caribbean History. The world today is nothing more than the product of everything that came before; hence, misunderstanding the past leads us to misjudge the present. I will focus on the historical myths and distortions that people use today in order to explain away the world in which we live; we will cut away the stilts supporting our illusions, and we will begin with the central myth of Western history: the Middle Ages.
