Description

This session hosts four papers which analyze acts of mentorship in the Middle Ages and their implications in post-medieval settings. Mentorship as an act abounds in both history and literature throughout the medieval period, with a lively culture of debate in systematic theology, literal and literary guides through various types of landscapes. Mentors manifest themselves as allegorical figures who dispense wisdom to distraught narrators, priests bestowing orders upon junior clergy, and young nobles being initiated into royalty by their tutors. Such relationships will be explored by the researchers presenting at this panel.
