The 2018 IMSSS symposium will explore the breadth and depth of sermon literature and preaching activity relating to monks, nuns, and monastic life, and serve as a microcosm of the religious and cultural landscape of the Middle Ages.

Mediterranean Meetings in the Central Middle Ages
Friday 30 June – Sunday 2 July, 2017
St Edmund Hall, University of Oxford
By some accounts, 1017 marked the advent of the Norman presence in Italy and Sicily, inaugurating a new era of invasion, interaction and integration in the Mediterranean. Whether or not we decide the millennial anniversary is significant, the moment offers an ideal opportunity to explore the story in the south, about a thousand years ago. To what extent did the Normans establish a cross-cultural empire? What can we learn by comparing the impact of the Norman presence in different parts of Europe? What insights are discoverable in comparing local histories of Italy and Sicily with broader historical ideas about transformation, empire and exchange? The conference draws together established, early-career and post-graduate scholars for a joint investigation of the Normans in the South, to explore together the many meetings of cultural, political and religious ideas in the Mediterranean in the central Middle Ages.
The three-day conference features 80 speakers from around the world, and three parallel strands of sessions: ‘Conquest and Culture’, ‘Art and Architecture’ and ‘Power and Politics’.
