7. CALL FOR PAPERS

The Waldensians in the Medieval and Early Modern European Context
9th-10th February 2018
Trinity College Dublin

In recent years, the medieval and early modern Waldensians have enjoyed a renewed scholarly interest giving rise to a number of new publications. Moreover, 2017 marks the anniversary of Reformation which resulted in a number of scholarly events. There are, however, significant gaps in scholarship on the Waldensians, most notably a lack of critical editions as well as studies around topics such as intertextuality and the circulation of texts. Such research would allow scholars in the field to gain a better knowledge of Waldensian text production and the place of that movement within the medieval and early modern religious space in Europe.
The Trinity Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies will be hosting a conference on the Waldensians on the 9th to 10th February 2018 in Trinity College Dublin. The purpose of this conference will be to advance this discussion of the movement and to foster international collaboration in Waldensian studies. It is anticipated that the papers will be published (subject to peer review).
