artifact description
The session will feature papers from project members of the collaborative research project Symbols that Bind and Break Communities: Saints’ Cults as Stimuli and Expressions of Local, Regional, National and Universalist Identities under the EuroCORECODE programme of the European Science Foundation (2010-2013). This project is a collaboration between groups of scholars from 5 European Universities. The interdisciplinary project investigates the significance of saints in the context of developing regional and trans-regional identities. The approach of the CRP is to a large extent reception historical dealing with changes, revisions or other transformations which have taken place and still take place within individual, local or communal appropriations of transmitted materials from medieval saints’ cults.Nils H.
