Architectural Representation in the Middle Ages

There’s still time — just under one month — to submit an abstract for the forthcoming two-day conference ‘Architectural Representation in the Middle Ages’. This is an interdisciplinary conference spanning the whole of the medieval period in Britain and on the Continent, but we are of course very keen to have plenty of Anglo-Saxon representation. We’re understanding ‘Architectural Representation’ as broadly as possible, so if you have anything that you want to say that you think will come under that heading, we’re ready to believe you. For more information, or any questions, please feel free to email daniel.thomas@ell.ox.ac.uk or hannah.bailey@ell.ox.ac.uk.

North of England Saints, 600-1500

21-22 March 2015, Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford
Following the feast day commemorating St Cuthbert’s death on 20 March, this two-day interdisciplinary conference aims to fill a strategic gap in our understanding of the wider implications of the medieval cults of saints and the lives and social importance of hermits and anchorites. The conference will bring together scholars working on the liturgical, political, military, social and economic aspects of sanctity in Durham, Northumbria, Cumbria, Yorkshire and modern-day Scotland.
