Description

In this session, we propose to foreground a highly relevant discussion of popular exegesis occurring in the study of the early Middle Ages. As our the scholarly understanding of the traditional distinction between high literary culture and low folk culture becomes increasingly fraught, we are developing new ways to think about the intersections between orthodox theology, embodied practices and rituals, sensory experience, and the complex network of beliefs that shaped the experience of daily life in the Middle Ages.
