    Categorising the Church (II)

    Clerical and monastic communities in the Carolingian World (8th-10th)

    The Carolingian era has seen by many as a time when the Church became increasingly institutionalised. One of the main aspects of this development, exemplified by the series of councils held between 816 and 819, was a (re)definition of the canonical and monastic orders and the requirement for each community in the realm to comply either with the institutiones canonicorum and sanctimonialium or with the Rule of Benedict. Despite the influential works of J. Semmler or R. Schieffer, however, the real impact of these proposed reforms is still an open question, and from this perspective, the very notion of institutionalisation can also be questioned.

    Medieval revolutions

    The French Journal of Medieval English Studies BAM is seeking submissions for a special issue focusing on the notion of “revolution”. The word “revolution” does not appear in English before the 14th century. The word is borrowed from French revolucion, derived from the Latin revolvere. In medieval Latin the meaning of revolutio becomes both scientific and religious as it describes the movement of celestial bodies and the transmigration of souls (metempsychosis). The first known occurrence of the word “revolution” to describe an abrupt change in social order dates from 1450. However, that use does not become common until the end of the 17th century.

    The family in the Arab-Islamic medieval world - parenthood, power and marginality

    Parenté, pouvoir et marginalité

    La famille dans le monde arabo-islamique médiéval suscite toujours l’intérêt des historiens médiévistes puisqu’elle représente encore un thème de recherche important et peu étudié au Moyen Âge, malgré les travaux bien connus déjà réalisés. Nous envisageons d’approfondir la recherche sur ce thème autour de trois axes : la parenté, le pouvoir et la marginalité. Dans une perspective pluridisciplinaire et comparative, notre appel à communication est adressé aussi aux chercheurs des autres spécialités et des autres périodes historiques.

    Power, authority and normativity

    Brussels medieval culture and war conference

    The 2018 edition of the medieval culture and war conference will take place at the Saint-Louis University, Brussels, and will focus on the theme of “Power, Authority and Normativity”. An omnipresent phenomenon, war was a dominant social fact that impacted every aspect of society in the Middle Ages. Moving away from so-called “histoire-bataille” that studied war on its own as an isolated succession of battles, historiography has moved towards investigation of how military conflicts influenced the economic, legal, political, religious, and social spheres in the Middle Ages.

    Pour le centre de la Gaule, la transition entre Antiquité et haut Moyen Âge fait l’objet d’un intérêt nouveau grâce à l’abondance des données fournies par les fouilles archéologiques et au renouvellement des questionnements posés aux sources écrites. Les organisateurs souhaitent que le colloque, rencontre entre archéologues et historiens, servent à diffuser cette importante documentation récente, en offrent des outils d’analyse, voire en proposent déjà des premières synthèses régionales.

    Formulas in Medieval Culture

    The fourth bi-annual conference on Formulas in Medieval Culture (initiated by the research groups GRENDEL and IDEA, based at the University of Lorraine, France) will be held on the 13th, 14th and 15th of June 2018 at the Centre d'Etudes Supérieures de Civilisation Médiévale (CESCM) at the University of Poitiers. In the Middle Ages, modes of thought and representation involving repetition and regularity, which were expected and easily identifiable, were sources of rich tensions between individual expression and collective norms, between change and continuity, between creation and convention.

    The medieval horse

    International medieval congress 2018

    Palfreys and rounceys, hackneys and packhorses, warhorses and coursers, not to mention the mysterious “dung mare” – they were all part of everyday life in the Middle Ages. Every cleric and monk, no matter how immersed in his devotional routine and books he would be, every nun, no matter how reclusive her life, every peasant, no matter how poor his household, would have some experience of horses. To the medieval people, horses were as habitual as cars in the modern times. Besides, there was the daily co-existence with horses to which many representatives of the gentry and nobility – both male and female – were exposed, which far exceeds the experience of most amateur riders today.

    The Middle Ages - a civilisation or a "rainbow" of cultures?

    An interdisciplinary reflection of the concept of "medieval civilisation"

    À l’occasion du soixantième anniversaire de la revue des Cahiers de civilisation médiévale, nous envisageons de publier un numéro spécial sur le concept de « civilisation » qui avait présidé, en 1953 et 1958, à la naissance du Centre d'études supérieures de civilisation médiévale (CESCM), puis des Cahiers. C’est sur la base de ce projet, à l’initiative des membres du comité et conseil scientifique de la revue, que notre collègue Claudio Galderisi, professeur de littérature médiévale à l’université de Poitiers, propose quelques linéaments sur l’évolution de la notion et quelques pistes de recherche sur les articles que nous souhaiterions recevoir.

    The history of Le Havre

    La mémoire collective havraise se résume souvent à la fondation du Havre par François Ier et aux bombardements de septembre 1944. Pourtant l’histoire de l’estuaire commence bien avant 1517, notamment autour des ports d'Harfleur, de Leure, d'Honfleur ou Aizier. La région fut un centre important de la vie religieuse au Moyen Âge, autour des abbayes de Pental et de Montivilliers ou du prieuré de Graville. Ce colloque a pour objectif une relecture de l'histoire de l'estuaire de la Seine, depuis l'Antiquité jusqu'à 1517.

    Meanings of rituals

    Incense and religion in ancient societies

    Although several studies have drawn attention to the role of incense as an ingredient in ritual and a means of communication between men and gods, there remains no comprehensive examination of the practical functions and cultural semantics of incense in the ancient world, whether as a purifying agent, a performative sign of a transcendent world, an olfactory signal to summon the deity, a placatory libation, or food for the gods. Moreover, recent archaeological research has provided evidence (alongside literary, epigraphic and iconographic evidence) that the physical origins and chemical constituents of incense are complex and diverse, as are their properties : resins, vegetable gums, spices, and a welter of aromatic products that could be exhibited and burned before ancient eyes and noses. These were components of a multi-sensory religious experience in which music, colourful costumes, lavish banquets and tactile encounters defined the ritualsensibilities of the community.

    Walruses, Whales and Narwhals

    Maritime Ivories in Western Europe, 900-1500

    In the history of carved ivories, maritime mammals have often been eclipsed by the elephant, considered as a nobler ivory to which walrus or whale ivory would only be a poor man's substitute. But this historiographical view is not without its shortcomings, as not only did walrus hunting play a significant role in the first European explorations toward the west, but the trade for those ivories went as far as the Islamic world and even the Far East. This session at the 52nd International Congress on Medieval Studies, sponsored by the National Museum of Scotland, aims to address the variety of questions posed by the maritime ivories: how the raw material was collected, how it was traded, the workshops that carved them and their specific symbolic value in medieval treasuries
