The study of the past has recently taken a material turn; this strand brings that turn to the study of bishops and the secular clergy in the Middle Ages. This session brings together archaeology and history, with papers that examine the use and regulation of space - including the feasting that is a theme of the IMC 2016 - to support the ambitions of secular clergy and of bishops.
