Friday 6 January 2017, 9.00AM to 18:30
Speaker(s): Invited panel of international speakers
Rethinking Reform 900-1150: The Languages of Reform is the theme of the first of four one-day workshops funded by the Leverhulme Trust International Network for the Rethinking Reform 900-1150: Conceptualising Change in Medieval Religious Institutions project. The now universal label 'reform' is a modern creation going back to c.1800 and one which conceals more than it reveals. Central to the project is consideration of the question: How should we conceptualise the programme of institutional changes which swept the Western church 900-1150?
The project, coordinated by the University of Leeds, will host 4 one-da workshops exploring different interconnected themes at sites across Europe (Mainz, Leuven, York and Leeds) and culminates in a 2-day conference at the University of Ghent in 2019.
The Languages of Reform, hosted by the University of York, aims to provoke and inspire thiknig about the subject in a relaxed and welcoming environment. Presentations from invited medievalists will be followed by regular opportunities fo rdiscussion amongst all participants.
