Workshop ‘Modern Europe meets Reform’, 12-13 April 2018 (Leeds)

Modern Europe meets Reform is a workshop that aims to investigate the development of historical writing about the medieval church across the period from the Reformation to the twentieth century. We hope this will bring together medievalists and modernists and create new areas for debate.

The workshop is part of a larger international project entitled Rethinking Reform 900-1150: Conceptualising Change in Medieval Religious Institutions, funded by the Leverhulme Trust. It brings together scholars from across Europe to focus on how changes in medieval churches were understood and explained in their own day and on how they have been reinterpreted in post-Reformation and especially post-Napoleonic historical writing.

The workshop is free to attend but places are limited and booking is essential. Refreshments will be served, including lunch on Friday. Book here to reserve your place.

A number of bursaries for research and taught postgraduate students are available to help towards travel and accommodation costs. The deadline for application for these is Monday 12 February 2018. Please contact Dr. Ceri Pitches for further details.
