Description

This session is intended to re-evaluate Archbishop
Wulfstan of York’s conception of the institution and ideology
of kingship. Wulfstan is of perennial interest to scholars both
as one of Anglo-Saxon England’s most influential political
thinkers and as the author of a wide range of homilies,
law-codes, political tracts, and canon law compilations. This
session will focus particularly on Wulfstan’s views of kingship
and royal authority. The timing of this session is especially apt
as it coincides with the millenary of his legal masterpiece I-II
Cnut and anticipates the commemorative events surrounding the
millenary of his death in 2023.
