Monthly Seminar 2/17

CSCC invites all to participate in the first monthly seminar in 2017!

PhD Reima Välimäki will give us a presentation based on his doctoral dissertation “The Awakener of Sleeping Men. Inquisitor Petrus Zwicker, the Waldenses and the Retheologisation of Heresy in Late Medieval Germany.” He will focus on the question of retheologisation. Retheologisation as a concept describes the process where a polemic style in inquisition hearings re-emerged in late 14th century. The inquisitors turned their interest in laypeople’s religious lives and how laypeople practised religion and understood the theological aspects of Christianity. This retheologisation had an effect also on the variety of texts produced for the teaching of the laypeople.

The seminar will be held on Friday 3 February 2017 at 1 p.m. in Aikala Hall (Kaivokatu 12, Historicum, 2nd floor).

We cordially welcome you all to participate in CSCC’s Monthly Seminar on inquisition, heresy and retheologisation!
