Conference date(s): September 16, 2015 – September 17, 2015

This conference is co-hosted with the Universities of Reading and Liverpool Hope.

  • Religion and Society: Domestic piety and lay/household Catholicism.
  • Material Culture and ritual objects.
  • The economy of piety: indulgences, relics and paying for piety.
  • Personal and public piety: Continuity and change over the medieval and early modern periods.

It is anticipated that selected papers will be published as part of an edited collection.
