Description

13th English Franciscan Thought
King’s College London – European Research Council
29-31 May 2020
Goodenough College, Mecklenburgh Square, London

The European Research Council funded project ‘Authority and Innovation in Early Franciscan Thought (c. 1220-45)’ focuses on first-generation thinkers at the University of Paris, particularly Alexander of Hales and John of La Rochelle, devoting special attention to the co-authored Summa Halensis. As part of the effort to situate the early Franciscan intellectual tradition at Paris in a wider context, this conference will focus on 13th century English Franciscan thought, especially in the first half of the century. Papers will be delivered on various thinkers and themes within this tradition, with a view to highlighting the comparisons and contrasts that can be drawn with the early school at Paris. The goal of the conference is to understand how ideas and texts cross-pollinated amongst the schools or were developed independently.

The conference will run from 2-6pm on Friday 29 May, 9am-6pm on Saturday 30 May, and 9am-6pm on Sunday 31 May

If you would like to book lunch on one or more of the days, please do so using King’s eStore; the charge is £10 per day.
