Abstract

The second session of ‘Allusion, Reference, and Memory’ will continue to explore the ways in which allusion was used within medieval narratives. A variety of both geographically and temporally broad subjects ranging from allusion, memory, and exile in English Monasticism, references to Bede in 12th-century historiography, and allusion in marginalia, will be discussed.
