Kansainvälinen konferenssi: Authorities in the Middle Ages.

Authorities in the Middle Ages

International Conference
Helsinki, Finland
20–23 of September 2010

Call for Papers

The Latin word auctoritas means not only authority and influence, but
more generally opinion, encouragement, decree or example. The concept
thus resonates deeply in the study of social structures,
communication or religious culture, for instance. Who had auctoritas,
and how? How was influence built and maintained, how was it lost? How
was authority contested? What about model and precedent? 

Glossa - the society for medieval studies in Finland is arranging
