Description

Hell Studies (ICMS 2015)

Throughout the Middle Ages, the idea of Hell has haunted humanity. The hope of heaven and the fear of Hell have motivated the actions of kings, priests, and peasants alike, and left an indelible mark on medieval culture.

This session will provide a forum for new research into this diverse and important field, bringing together papers about the literature, theatre, art, and history of Hell, its residents, and its environment. We at the Societas Daemonetica believe that the study of things diabolical provides an excellent stage for new, interesting, and interdisciplinary research.
