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 three papers the arbitrary and fluid nature of memory is presented within the context of various representations of religious knowledge, ranging from the literary topos of the garden, to the writings on Anselm of Canterbury and the projection of truth within debates on political resistance.
