The first in a series of four session, each combines specialists in different periods, places, sources, and/or groups. Studying the forms, methods, practices, and content of recognition across many types of boundaries, the series calls special attention to the function borders served collectively and individually, not only to distinguish groups or individual capacities, but also to relate or even integrate parts into a social or psychological whole. This first session examines modes, methods, and consequences of recognition across the real and imagined boundaries that distinguished Christians, Jews, Muslims, preachers, and audiences from the 9th through the 13th century and in the 14th and 15th centuries.
