The New Christians And Religious Reform In Medieval And Early Modern Europe

Event Date: 
14 Jun 2017 to 16 Jun 2017

Colegio Mayor of the University of Alcalá


Papers and panels are invited for the Sixth International CONVERSO and MORISCO Studies Conference, organized by Saint Louis University, Madrid Campus, in collaboration with the University of Alcalá at Alcalá de Henares. The Conference, timed to coincide with the 500th Anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation, will examine New Christians as religious reformers, non-conformists, dissidents and irenists in late medieval and early modern Spain and beyond. What are New Christian reform voices? How does the converso/limpieza issue affect religious reform in Spain and Portugal? How important was the converso issue to irenist discourse in Counter-Reformation Spain? These are some of the questions our conference will address. To ensure we have sufficient time for discussion, we are limiting panels to three panellists and the conference to thirty participants. A selection of the conference papers will be published in the fourth volume of our series examining Converso and Morisco themes: The Conversos and Moriscos in Late Medieval Spain and Beyond, published by Brill Academic Press. Send 500-word abstracts in English or Spanish to: Deadline for abstracts: Friday 6 January, 2017
