New Perspectives on Heretical Discourse and Identity: The Waldensians in the Medieval and Early Modern Context

Friday, 9 February – Saturday, 10 February 2018

New Perspectives on Heretical Discourse and Identity:  The Waldensians in the Medieval and Early Modern Context

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.
