Date: 

Sun, 08/07/2016 - 10:15

The 2016 Summer Lecture Series takes as its central theme Catholicism and “heretical” movements in Late Medieval Europe. Characterized by great turmoil, the Late Middle Ages was a period of religious diversity and vitality. The four lectures will probe the wide variety of beliefs and practices held by clergy and laity in Europe before the age of the Protestant Reformation.

This series seeks to provide a foundation for lectures and events planned by the Division for Late Medieval and Reformation Studies for the 2017 commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.  

Susan C. Karant-Nunn, Director of the Division and Regents' Professor of History, or Ute Lotz-Heumann, Heiko A. Oberman Professor of Late Medieval and Reformation History, will contextualize and comment on each of the following lectures.

On Sunday, August 7, Adam Bonikowske, doctoral student, will present the first lecture, entitled "Prophecy, Prayer, and Penance: Lay Religiosity and Catholicism in Fifteenth-Century Germany."

The series comprises four lectures presented on consecutive Sundays beginning on August 7.
