Description

Research on reform in the eleventh and twelfth centuries has, for some time now, expressed dissatisfaction with our standard narratives of this period in ecclesiastical history. But new, broad interpretations have not yet emerged. Building on the discussions begun in the 2012 Kalamazoo panels sponsored by Episcopus, this session invites papers analyzing ecclesiastical reform in a specific 11th- or 12th-century text. The respondents will consider what sort of narrative of reform would best accommodate the evidence of their sources. - John S. Ott
