Abstract

This session is jointly organised with Professor Felcitas Schmieder (Fernuniversitaet Hagen, Germany) and is the fourth of several proposed sessions on ‘Apocalypse, Prophecy and Reform’ (the other three session are organised by James Palmer and Matt Gabriele). This session examines how reformist concepts cast in the prophetic mould were developed and communicated in the medieval world through a variety of media (including liturgy and performance) in the 12th century.
