Description

Discussions and analyses of late medieval Christianity have recurrently examined questions of reform, religious practice, and heresy. The initial examination of these topics through a theological lens has been broadened to include cultural and social dimensions in order to capture the broader significance and effects of religious developments during the Middle Ages. Building on this broader intellectual foundation, the current generation of scholars is seeking further to broaden our understanding of late-medieval religious controversies through analyses rooted in textual circulation, discursive practices, social networks, and materiality, and to apply these approaches to the study of controversies in regions that have received less attention among Anglophone scholars. This panel provides the opportunity to bring together emerging scholars of late medieval Christianity, in any discipline, to examine the state of the field, showcase current methodologies, and identify opportunities for further research. We hope that this occasion will introduce contributions of young scholars (particularly graduate students who are nearing completion of their dissertations), stimulate further discussion on late medieval religiosity and religious controversy, and also attract new students to the topic.
