The rise and fall of a sodomy-accused king - So Magnus Eriksson was kicked off the throne

Free and open sexuality can be seen as a matter of course in today's Sweden. It was different in the Middle Ages! Anton Blomdahl, student at the program Cultural heritage in the present and future, takes us back to the reign of King Magnus Eriksson in the 14th century. King Magnus was accused of sodomy - lewd and ungodly life - by Saint Birgitta herself, among others, in a smear campaign that cost him the throne. Anton has analyzed the events from a queer perspective and tells in this podcast episode what he has come to. Interview partner: Maria Kanje, producer, Kalmar county museum. Technician: Anderas Juhl, marketing manager.
