This one-day conference will explore the latest thinking on early medieval political theology, with particular attention to the idea of the secular during the early Middle Ages.
The early Middle Ages has been called a period of ‘de-secularization’, but recent work has questioned this analysis; consequently, the conference explores how concepts of the secular and de-secularization can shed light on the early Middle Ages.
Papers will address different aspects of early medieval political theology to examine the question of the secular in administration, ethics, exegesis, gender, historiography, law and liturgy.
