Medieval History

Seminar or event series

The Medieval History seminar brings together scholars of all career stages to hear papers on every area of medieval history from late antiquity to the fifteenth century. The seminar meets at 4pm on alternate Thursdays in the Faculty Board Room, and is usually followed by crisps and drinks in the Faculty Common Room (finishing around 6.30pm).

Due to Covid-19, the Easter Term 2020 seminar was conducted 'virtually'. One paper from the session can be heard as a podcast:

Prof Jessalynn Bird, St Mary's Indiana, "The Grateful Dead: Crusade, Almsgiving, Purgatory and Indulgences for the Dead"

The seminar sessions in Michaelmas Term 2020 will also take place in a virtual format, though it is hoped that sessions later in the year will be conducted as normal.
