Description

This panel is designed to highlight the conscious literary and pedagogical skill with which Aelred incorporates dramatic elements into his treatises providing instruction in Christian doctrine and life. It will pay particular attention to the way he uses characterization, invented speeches, and narrative structure in his works. It seeks to understand the way in which the power of his teaching resides in his rhetorical method as well as in the theological acumen of the ideas he conveys with that method. Susan M. B. Steuer
