Abstract

This session explores new directions in research on medieval confession by considering both early and late medieval penance. Lane Springer will discuss the monastic system of penance as it is depicted in early medieval Irish penitential literature, focusing on exile and its connection with the idea of peregrinatio. Andrea Mancini will draw attention to the importance of confession in the Observant movement of the Order of Friars Minor in 15th-century Italy, exploring the works of the Franciscan Nicholas of Osimo.
