Session 1135, Wednesday 9 July 2014: 11.15-12.45

Local Heroes: New Approaches to the Study of Minor Saints and Their Cults

Organizer: Anne E. Bailey, Harris Manchester College, University of Oxford

Chair: Rodney M. Thomson, School of History & Classics, University of Tasmania

One of the Hagiography Society sessions at Leeds this year has had a speaker pull out and is in need of a replacement.  The session topic is on minor saints’ cults, and the session is intended to be interdisciplinary, so there is plenty of room for art-historical work.  Although Leeds is a medieval conference, the Hagiography Society is expanding its reach to include a broader historical and geographical range, so papers outside of the strictly interpreted realm of medieval studies would also be welcome.  If you are interested in contributing a paper, please email Anne Bailey (anne.bailey@history.ox.ac.uk); or, if you know someone who might be interested, please forward this information.
