CFP for Leeds: Dives and Pauper

CFP Leeds 2011: “Dives and Pauper “

The very title of this Middle English treatise speaks to the theme of the Leeds International Medieval Congress. Well-known yet under-studied, its prologue deals with questions of wealth and evangelical poverty, while its treatment of the Ten Commandments has provided historians with a wealth of information about fourteenth- and fifteenth-century life.

I am seeking papers exploring any aspect of Dives and Pauper. Possible topics might include its possible authorship and patronage; connections with Lollardy, vernacular theology, or homiletics; analyses of any of its many parts; sources and analogues; and manuscript traditions. Other proposals are also warmly welcomed.

Please send abstracts for papers of 15-20 minutes to Elizabeth Harper at eharper [at] uca [dot] edu by Monday, September 20, 2010.

Please share!
