Abstract

The University of California, Los Angeles, Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, in honor of the 2007-2008 John E. Sawyer Seminar sponsored by the Andrew W.

These sessions will expand upon the conversations first initiated at UCLA on such areas as the role of disputation in the formulation of faith, philosophy, love, poetry, sedition, and reason.
