Description

Virtuous exemplars play important roles in all the world religions. We invite papers that address medieval people of extraordinary virtue in, e.g., Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism, as well as Christianity. Subjects might include developing cult; liturgical practice; use of relics; associated literature; political implications; vision and miracle; pilgrimage and architecture; gender and asceticism; relevance to contemporary world cult. Scholars may wish to collaborate in submitting papers for a panel that explores a single one of these subjects from a comparative perspective. Our goal is to enable enriching comparisons and contrasts among religions in the pre-modern world.
