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 (firstname.lastname@example.org); or, if you know someone who might be interested, please forward this information.
