Abstract

Praying is a universal phenomenon that facilitates vertical and horizontal networks. The practice enables the earthly faithful to interact with the heavenly divine. It also connects a global community of believers across religious and confessional boundaries. This session will investigate multiple layers of networks within late-medieval and early modern prayer cultures, visible in various devotional objects, especially in manuscripts and prints from this era. Speakers are members of the network 'Late Medieval and Early Modern Prayer Cultures'. The network is dedicated to promoting transnational and interdisciplinary research in the field of prayer studies.
