The Wheel of Fortune

I’ve just been looking into the idea, in ancient and medieval culture, of the Wheel of Fortune. One of the interesting things I found out is the famous chorus in Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, which I always found rather Satanic, is actually a Medieval poem about the Wheel of Fortune.

Have a look.
