In July our staff and students will appear in numerous sessions at the International Medieval Congress held at Leeds University.
This event is an annual highlight in the calendar for medievalists of all disciplines. This year Dr Peter Darby speaks on, ‘Reforming the Rustici: Heresy and Apocalypse in Bede’s Letter to Plegwine’. Dr Rob Lutton speaks on, ‘The Holy Name in Late Medieval England: Reformist Religious Reading’. Dr Claire Taylor’s paper is entitled, ‘Apostolic Economics: Heresy, Orthodoxy, and Property in the High Middle Ages’. New this year, we are sponsoring our first post-graduate session, entitled ‘At the Chalk Face: Confronting Popular Heresy in Practice’. This session brings together work on the confrontation of popular heresy by secular and monastic authorities as they encountered real-world examples (which many medieval people writing ‘authoritatively’ about heresy never actually did).
Together, the papers address medieval approaches to religious dissent as they emerged in practical contexts. If you will be at Leeds, please come along. You can also meet us at the Institute for Medieval Research wine reception.
