TORCH Oxford Medieval Studies programme are hosting an Interdisciplinary Medieval Seminar, Week 3, Friday 28 October, 5pm, Main Hall, Taylorian Hall. Dr Stephen Mossman (University of Manchester) will give a talk on 'Devotional Culture in Late Medieval Strasbourg'


Medieval historian Dr Stephen Mossman (Manchester) is presenting the diverse devotional culture of late medieval Strasbourg from the perspective of its surviving manuscripts and libraries: What was read, copied and discussed between the Charterhouse, the religious lay communities and the townspeople? How did this manifest itself in the art, architecture and ceremonies? The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception which will also launch Professor Nigel F. Palmer’s major new book on the Strasbourg Begerin prayerbook, on the occasion of his 70th birthday.


The seminar will be followed by a drinks reception which is open to all.
