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.

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 Easter Term 2022 will be held at the Faculty of History.

 

Convenors:
Professor Tessa Webber
