Conference and Workshop - The Chapel in the North in Medieval Times

Conference and Workshop - The Chapel in the North in Medieval Times
-

Speaker: Professor Stefan Brink

The rationale for the Conference is the ongoing research at the Centre for Scandinavian Studies on the function, legal and ecclesiastical status and use of chapels in medieval Scotland, Norway and England.

The conference aims to bring together some of the leading experts on chapels and medieval religious practices from the British Isles and Scandinavia in order to discuss what was a medieval chapel.

The papers will range from the archaeology of early medieval chapels, the function and role of later medieval chapels and the legal status of chapels.
