Debating religious space and place from Constantine to Cnut (AD 306-1035)

‘Debating Religious Space and Place from Constantine to Cnut (AD 306-1035)’ was a two-day conference hosted by the University of Leicester on 22-23 November 2014.

Our postgraduate-led conference brought together academic research on the theme of religious landscape transformation from The North Sea to the Holy Land from the fourth to eleventh centuries. A series of key studies, which provided a more international comparative approach to religious and spatial transformations in the Late Antique and Early Medieval world, readdressed questions of continuity and change, transformation or decline, and diversity or uniformity in both landscapes and social patterns across Europe and the Near East.
