Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
The conference, which has met in most years since 1970, will bring together established as well as younger scholars of all aspects of fifteenth-century studies. In honour of Margaret Aston (1932-2014), we propose to include a focus upon the religious history of the long fifteenth century. We particularly invite papers on subjects such as heresy and non-conformity, martyrdom, and iconoclasm, as well as pre-Reformation and Reformation religion in a broader sense.
In common with previous Fifteenth Century Conferences, we also invite papers showcasing all aspects of current research into the fifteenth century and new trends in the field, relating to both England and the wider world, and of all disciplinary backgrounds. Contributions from current research students are especially welcome. Subject to peer review, papers may be published in Boydell & Brewer’s series The Fifteenth Century.
The conference will be held at the Colchester Campus of the University of Essex, located in the beautiful grounds of Wivenhoe House, around 60 minutes from central London. The conference will take advantage of the many medieval features of Colchester, including an exclusive evening private view and wine reception at the newly refurbished Colchester Castle museum, the largest Norman keep in Britain, constructed upon the foundations of the Roman temple of Claudius. Tours will take in the Red Lion, the Duke of Norfolk’s fifteenth century townhouse; the gatehouse of St John’s Abbey; the ruins of St Botolph’s Priory; and eight surviving medieval parish churches.
