Description

Ælfric’s importance and influence were established in his lifetime by his correspondence with both religious and secular rulers. He is also one of the only Anglo-Saxon writers whose importance is evidenced after his death by the continual use of his works throughout the Middle Ages and their importance in confessional debates during the English Reformation. This panel is interested in work that advances scholarship on the writings of Ælfric or in defining and theorizing spheres of influence in which he worked and that he shaped.
