Loyalty in the Medieval World - CONFERENCE


Conference: Loyalty in the Medieval World | 5-7 April 2024 | University of Lincoln

Loyalty has long been recognised as a crucial medieval concept, being invoked by contemporaries in such widely spaced contexts as political struggles, state-building, courtly romance, group solidarities, and marital and kinship bonds. This conference aims to bring together fresh approaches to loyalty in practice and as an ethical bond, and foster a deeper understanding of emotion, behaviour, and social and political structures across the medieval world.

Run over three days, the conference includes papers from 43 speakers from 14 countries, including a keynote by Professor David Stocker at the Lincoln Museum. This event is kindly supported by the Leverhulme Trust, Haskins Society, and Lincoln Record Society, and sponsored by the Battle Conference on Anglo-Norman Studies.
