This second of three sessions takes a closer look at the interplay of politics and communication. The central question is how information about political events, economic strategies, or ecclesiastical reforms, was transformed into specific sets of knowledge, and how this knowledge was communicated to a wider audience via different media depending on the social context of the intended audience. Papers in this session will bring together case studies dealing with examples from monastery reforms, merchant's knowledge and the interplay between identity building and memorial culture.
