This first of three sessions focusses on the question of how knowledge was created in specific social environments and how the circulation of knowledge defined, shaped, and separated social communities. We will take a closer look at different secular and ecclesiastical groups, for example social elites, such as aristocrats or knights, monastic communities, philosophical or intellectual circles. We are interested in processes of canonisation and different narrative concepts of poetry, as well as the interaction of teaching and learning with processes of identity building.
