Christian is currently working on a thesis in the School of English exploring the medieval legend ‘The Three Living and the Three Dead’. She was recently interviewed for a BBC Radio Scotland programme called ‘The Walking Dead’, which examines Scottish belief in revenants.
Writer A.L. Kennedy is the presenter for the half-hour documentary feature, which examines belief in revenants from the Middle Ages through the Reformation. Christian’s portion of the programme was recorded at Melrose Abbey, home to a number of twelfth-century revenant tales. Christian related the tales and discussed how they fit into medieval eschatology, the doctrine of the Resurrection, and lay folkloric belief.
The programme aired at 1.30pm on 29th October on BBC Radio Scotland. You may access the programme via this link:
