  Priscilla Kucik  

“The Medieval 'Courts of Love’”  In the days before Charades and Pictionary, and long before Judge Judy, on cold winter nights in drafty castles, people amused themselves by holding a "Court of Love" and bringing several cases "to trial.” Men would grovel and snivel. Women would be cold, distant and unattainable. Unrequited love would lead to superb poetry and music. It was innocent entertainment. Or was it? Explore the 12th century in Europe as love became associated with sex. The world was never the same. Priscilla Kucik has been a member of the medieval recreation organization, The Society for Creative Anachronism, for more than 35 years and is known as a 14th century Slovak lady that rode off with the Mongol Horde under the name of Mistress Priscilla the Sensible. She is a member of the St. Andrew's Society of Milwaukee, charter member and president of the Robert Burns Club of Milwaukee, and served as a past Wisconsin commissioner for Clan MacLeod. She has also studied the Hebrew and Christian scriptures.
