Celebrating the publishing of the joint volume, Sapientia & Eloquentia: Meaning and Function in Liturgical Poetry, Music, Drama, and Biblical Commentary in the Middle Ages, this session is devoted to the theme of liturgical renewal in the 12th century. The three papers will focus on certain aspects of the intention, interpretation, and transformation of already existing forms of monastic liturgies of this time of intellectual renewal. The presentations will be accompanied and interwoven by philosophical comments to enhance and underline the dynamics of literature and religiosity which are a fundamental characteristic of the 12th century.
