Abstract

This session is organised by members of a research group focussed on the study of the potent and discursive nature of medieval religious knowledge, with special attention to the transfer and transformation of the subject matter. In the papers three different instances of the actualisation of religious knowledge will be presented ranging from educational books, to religious plays and courtly literature. The main question that is discussed is what happens when religious knowledge crosses boundaries between people during interactions that transform the content to suit a new audience or purpose.
