Abstract

This session will address issues of the political dangers of intellectual debate, where such debates and speculations might be thought to verge on the unorthodox, in France in the high Middle Ages. All the papers explore the consequences of unorthodox thought in the context of fierce theological debates in the schools of France and the nascent university of Paris.
