Call for papers, Leeds 2016 – Spiritual nourishment on the medieval peripheries
We are seeking papers that explore aspects of spirituality on the peripheries in any part of the medieval period. The papers should focus on the idea of nourishment as food for the soul, and engage with the notion of the geographical periphery in the Middle Ages. They should discuss the cult of saints or hagiographical literature, and topics can include (but are not limited to) missionary work, the use of saints in history, the liturgy of saints, saints’ vitae, or the role of the cult of saints in the religious life of the peripheries.
Abstracts for your papers should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com no later than September 29, 2015.
