Postgraduate Conference: Models of Conflict in Medieval Europe

Department of History

Conflict was a central feature of the European Middle Ages. This martial culture is reflected not only in violent literary themes but also in the Christian imagery of spiritual warfare common in medieval sermons and hagiography. This postgraduate conference will explore the way in which conflicts were conceptualised by medieval men and women by examining the models that both shaped their expectations of how real-life conflicts would play out and influenced the way they represented conflict in literary and religious texts.

The provisional programme for the conference is available on the conference website, which will be updated as new information becomes available.
