Abstract

One of the ways in which the medieval societies have been explored has been though the concept of community. Often very well-delineated such as monastic community, that of specific settlement, location, religious group, minority or one connected by other type of bonds. The ‘production’ of community, its evolution, inclusion, and exclusion are important approaches to examine social dynamics. These sessions would like to explore some of the central problems of the intersection of the community and memory, focusing on 1000-1550 from any part of the broadly understood medieval Europe.
