Conference ‘Shaping Authority’ (Leuven, Dec 2013)

LECTIO, the Leuven Centre for the study of the transmission of texts and ideas in Antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, kindly invites you to attend the next Conference, entitled ‘Shaping Authority’. How did a person become an authority in Antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance?

In this two-day conference (see the digital flyer with schedule) we will focus on the mechanisms and strategies by which participants in intellectual life at large have shaped the authority of historical persons; and which circumstances have led to the disintegrations of the authority of persons previously considered to be authoritative.

This conference takes place on Thursday 5th and Friday 6th December 2013 in the Leuven Institute for Ireland in Europe, Janseniusstraat 1, 3000 Leuven.
