57-Resurrections Besides Jon Snow

57-Resurrections Besides Jon Snow

Game of Thrones watchers all saw the resurrection of Jon Snow coming. But what about actual history? In this episode, literary historian Liz Rodriguez and comic actress Nicole Keating discuss three accounts from the Renaissance English archives in which people somehow come back from death. Learn about the rejuvenation of 116-year-old John McClane, the haunting of a poorly buried sailor, and the incomplete hanging of miscarried mother. Questions answered in this episode include: Why would people return from death? How were these pseudo zombies explained? What beliefs underlay accepting these miracles as true?
