Registration is now open for Professor Irina Dumitrescu’s workshop:
Charisma and the Saints
Tuesday, 11 February at 10:00 a.m.
What can contemporary celebrity and theatre studies reveal about the rhetoric of medieval hagiography? With the Old English Life of St Mary of Egypt as our main object, we will ask what lends saints and their stories enduring fascination and discuss how competing theories of charisma illuminate medieval narratives.
