Description

By inviting papers on the reception of "heresy" in the 1300s, we would like to continue a collective effort to reconsider Marguerite Porete's writings and inquisition trial (1308-1310) in light of their direct influence on contemporary and later thinkers, and also more broadly by comparison and contrast among examples from the same century. Presenters could study one or more religious groups (such as Lollards, Hussites, Templars, Spiritual Franciscans, Cathars/Waldensians, Beguines and Beghards), and/or individuals (such as Bloemardinne, John Hus, Fra Dolcino, Jacques de Molay, Ramon Llull, Jerome of Prague, Meister Eckhart, Arnald of Villanova, Marguerite Porete). The session would welcome papers in multiple disciplines, such as law, history, literature, religious studies, gender studies, philosophy, and political science. We titled the session "Reception," and likewise we put quotation marks around "heresy," to allow critical distance from medieval currents of tolerance and intolerance.
