Abstract

The goal of this session is to propose a wide discussion concerning the idea of ‘crisis’ in the medieval west. Papers will approach the concept of ‘crisis’ and its many implications – socially and politically – in a range of different spaces of power, such as: the Carolingian Empire, Anglo-Saxon England and medieval Ireland. To understand ‘crisis’ in these spaces, papers will approach charters and capitularies, as well as a variety of other sources, ranging from the narrative to different legal texts.
