The Medieval Heresy and Dissent Research Network is delighted to announce this international conference.

The study of western medieval heresy is a hugely popular subject. ‘Heretical Self Defence’ asks how, and how well, did heretics and people rightly or wrongly associated with heresy, defend themselves from persecution? What determined this in the case of different movements? How did this change across our period?

The conference aims to highlight the following categories of resistance in particular: Text, Law, Subterfuge, Flight and Arms.

Those proposing papers are asked to consider and address these as is appropriate to their subject matter. Papers are invited on any medieval individuals, groups or movements.

Please send 200-word paper proposals to by 1 October 2017.
