Abstract

There has been a renewed interest in the study of medieval religion in recent years, and this round table aims to continue the discussion started in previous IMCs about the direction of research on medieval religion. We will focus both on historiographical perspectives, such as the continuing influence of modernisation and secularisation paradigms, and on the significance of collaborative and comparative approaches to pre-modern religion, exploring current trends and future directions in the study of the medieval religious practice and experience.

Participants include John Arnold (University of Cambridge), Sabrina Corbellini (Rijksuniversiteit Groningen), Kirsty Day (University of Edinburgh), Emilia Jamroziak (University of Leeds), and Amanda Power (University of Oxford).
