Abstract

These linked, interdisciplinary panels examine the role and representation of the medieval episcopacy during the gradual process of ecclesiastical reform on the European continent from the 8th to the 12th century. The first panel, focusing on historical experiences, ideologies, and deeds of individuals in 11th-century Flanders, Reims, and St Emmeram, considers viewpoints and realities of reform before and after the papacy of Gregory VII. The second panel will explore the visual language of ecclesiastical reform as expressed through episcopal patronage of architecture, manuscripts and metalwork in Burgundy, Flanders, Milan and Ravenna.
