Description

From her editions of the Anglo-Norman and Old French Infancy Gospels, to her monographs like The Song in the Story and Sacred Fictions of Medieval France, Maureen Boulton’s scholarship has long illuminated the complex imaginative world of francophone religious literature and culture. By focusing on lesser-known texts, authors, and traditions, she has brought often overlooked works into focus and expanded our understanding of medieval literature and culture. This panel seeks presentations responding to and building upon Maureen Boulton’s work in vernacular religious literatures--with the concepts both of vernacularity and of religious widely construed. We welcome proposals exploring the relationships between the secular and religious, questions of genre and form, the interplay of languages and the ramifications of vernacularity, and the place of manuscripts in literary study. We particularly welcome papers addressing issues of interdisciplinarity and the relationships between literature, music, theology, art, history, and performance in the formation of medieval religious cultures.
