Description

The 14th century saw a general movement towards a more public conception of both crime and sin. While punishment moved from being conceived as recompense of individual wrong towards being conceived as recompense of wrong to an entire community, penance too could take more public forms and be seen to remit more than personal sin. This session provides a forum for studies of penance and punishment that connect the body and the body politic.
