General description

This group comprises legal, cultural, social, religious and political historians of the later Middle Ages (c. 1000-1500) working across and beyond Western Europe, including France, England, Italy, Iberia, the Near East and of course the Low Countries. We explore questions related to identity formation (including territoriality and health), social dynamics (including communication), political legitimation and resistance, and the role that texts, rituals, the built environment and material culture played in shaping them.

Main activities
