Pour sa troisième édition, le colloque bisannuel sur la formule (GRENDEL – IDEA) aura lieu les 19, 20 et 21 juin 2014, sous l’égide de l’université de Perpignan (CRHiSM, VECT- Mare Nostrum et l’Institut Des Méditerranées). La manifestation se déroulera dans l’université même ainsi que dans d’autres hauts lieux du Moyen Âge catalan. Une demi-journée de découverte du patrimoine (Prieuré de Serrabone, Abbaye de Saint-Michel de Cuxa) et un concert médiéval ponctueront le programme.



The third biennial conference on formulas in medieval culture (GRENDEL – IDEA), hosted by the University of Perpignan (CRHiSM, VECT-Mare Nostrum & Institut Des Méditerranées) will take place on June 19-21 2014. The event will be held at the university and other locations significant in medieval Catalan culture. The programme will include a half-day of visits to sites including the priory of Serrabone and the abbey of Saint-Michel de Cuxa, as well as a concert of medieval music.

Medieval modes of thinking and representation rely heavily on the anticipated reiteration of recognizable forms or devices, generating productive tensions between individual expression and collective norms, change and continuity, creation and convention. Such formulas could be broadly characterized as a more or less fixed or recurrent pattern that remains open to innovation. The definition of “formula”is apt to vary depending on the field of inquiry: goals for this conference include describing the diversity of meanings and uses for the term, observing whether they are potentially compatible, and accounting for the pragmatic effect produced by formulaic repetitions, among other possible approaches.


This international and interdisciplinary conference will be of interest to researchers working in Medieval Studies in a range of fields, including, but not limited to:

  • literature (poetry, oral-formulaic theory, set phrases, topoi)
  • art history (motifs, production devices, artistic signatures)
  • history (medicine, cookery, magic)
  • law and diplomacy (studies of oaths, wills, charter preambles)
  • codicology (codices, colophons)
  • epigraphy (funerary and dedicatory inscriptions)
  • linguistics (politeness and ritualized interactions, historical linguistics, corpus studies focusing on technical or scholarly texts)
  • musicology (musical themes and composition)
  • religious life and practices (sermons, homilies, liturgy)

Languages: English, French, Spanish, Catalan.
