Robert Grosseteste and His Intellectual Milieu

International Robert Grosseteste Conference, 2003
July 18th-21st
Bishop Grosseteste College, Lincoln, UK
Keynote Speakers:
Prof. James McEvoy (Faculty of Philosophy, National University of Ireland, Maynooth)
Prof. Joseph Goering (Director, Graduate Centre for the Study of Religion, University of

Dr James Ginther (Department of Theology, University of Leeds, UK)
Robert Grosseteste (c. 1170-1253) left an intellectual legacy which encompassed a wide range of philosophical, theological and scientific topics. In addition to his exegetical and theological work, he translated The Nicomachean Ethics and the works of Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite into Latin; he wrote about the nature of light, astronomy, cosmology and geometry; he was the composer of a long religious poem the Chateau d'Amour and he was bishop of Lincoln, the largest diocese in England and, consequently, greatly involved in the pastoral and political life of the church.

2003 will be the 750th anniversary of Grosseteste's death and it is fitting that the occasion will be marked with a conference held in the cathedral town in which he is buried. The conference will look at Grosseteste in all of his intellectual diversity, therefore, papers are welcomed from those with interests in medieval theology, philosophy, ecclesiastical history, the history of mathematics and the history of science. Proposed papers should be about 40 minutes long. Abstracts for consideration (about 500 words in length) should reach the conference director before December 1st 2002.
