Gregorian Reform/Ecclesiastical Reform. Italian Perspectives on Historiographical Traditions in Dialogue [conference panel] (Conference/Institute/Seminar)
Title: Gregorian Reform/Ecclesiastical Reform. Italian Perspectives on Historiographical Traditions in Dialogue [conference panel]
Author: Tommaso di Carpegna Falconieri
Author: William L. North
Author: Umberto Longo
Abstract: The concept of ‘the Gregorian Reform’, as conceived about a century ago and still in use, interprets the various currents of ecclesiastical reform emerging between the 1040s and 1120s as a unitary project which, after a period of preparation, found its execution and full realization under Gregory VII (1073-1085). These presentations place this reading in dialogue with an alternative interpretation—advanced chiefly by Italian, German, and American historians—that understands reform as a complex, polyvalent phenomenon. Multi-directional and influenced by many individuals -- distinct in their interests, experiences and ideals -- only with time and struggle did the reform reach any eventual synthesis.

Artistic Languages of Reform in Italy [conference panel] (Conference/Institute/Seminar)
Title: Artistic Languages of Reform in Italy [conference panel]
Author: Kim Butler Wingfield
Author: Maureen C. Miller
Author: Lila Yawn
Author: Cristiana Filippini
Author: Gillian B. Elliott
Abstract: Just as medieval reformers sought to critique, inspire, and transform through the written and spoken word, so they mobilized artistic media as well as iconography to express their message. Yet, the relationship between art and intellectual and institutional developments is rarely simple and programmatic. After an initial contribution that evaluates methodologically scholarship linking artistic production and reform during the late eleventh and twelfth centuries, the remaining papers explore in depth two examples of the complex nexus of artistic expression, reform, and power as it manifested itself in the ecclesiastical sculpture of northern Italian churches and in the fresco programs of the Vatican

Reform between Text and Experience [conference panel] (Conference/Institute/Seminar)
Title: Reform between Text and Experience [conference panel]
Author: William L. North
Author: Fiona Somerset
Author: Cheryl Kaufman
Author: John Eldevik
Author: Lezlie Knox
Abstract: How is the reformer’s imagination nourished and their energies mobilized? This panel explores the diverse ways in which lived (or imagined) experience combined with texts to challenge, transform, and re-stabilize religious life and structures. Through examinations of how Lateran canons asserted their vital role in the liturgical life of the Eternal City, the impetus to reform provided by an account of a journey to the East, and the systematic recording of the lives and legends of Francscan ‘local heroes’, panelists explore the essential role of “textualized experience” in both articulating and institutionally anchoring visions of a better Christianity.

Reform of Space and Place in Medieval Italy {conference panel] (Conference/Institute/Seminar)
Title: Reform of Space and Place in Medieval Italy {conference panel]
Author: William L. North
Author: Maureen C. Miller
Author: Gregor Kalas
Author: Edward M. Schoolman
Author: Emily E. Graham
Abstract: Reform often involves changes in beliefs and practices but a critical component to promote and establish such changes is the physical environment in which such changes occur and which can support (or undermine) reform initiatives. This panel explores the role of the physical, and particularly the built, environment in the expression and establishment of reform in medieval Italy between the seventh and 14th centuries. Furthermore, it does so at three scales: the individual church (Santa Maria Antiqua in Rome); the urban ecclesiastical fabric (Ravenna); and Franciscan female houses of San Silvestro in Capite and San Lorenzo in Panisperna in Rome.

The Reformer's Evolution: Change in the Focus, Venue, and Media of Reform Initiatives in the Eleventh and Twelfth Centuries (Conference/Institute/Seminar)
Title: The Reformer's Evolution: Change in the Focus, Venue, and Media of Reform Initiatives in the Eleventh and Twelfth Centuries
Author: Maureen C. Miller
Author: William L. North
Author: Kathryn L. Jasper
Author: Marie-Thérèse Champagne
Author: Janet Youngdahl
Abstract: Although the language of reform can often lead to a perception of homogeneity and stability, closer examination of instances of reform reveals not only difference and dynamism within movements, but also significant change within the agents of reform themselves. The papers in this panel explore three distinct modes of personal “evolution” in the eleventh and twelfth centuries: in the case of Peter Damian, physical relocation and the redirection of reforming energy; in the works of Hildegard of Bingen, changing approaches to combining text, sound, and image; and with Nicholas Maniacutia, the reorientation of text-critical sensibilities towards a new object, namely the Vulgate.

Rediscovering Sainthood in Italy: Hagiography and the Late Antique Past in Medieval Ravenna (Book)
Title: Rediscovering Sainthood in Italy: Hagiography and the Late Antique Past in Medieval Ravenna
Author: Schoolman, Edward
Abstract: Beginning with Saint Barbatianus, a fifth-century wonderworking monk and confessor to the Empress Galla Placidia, this book focuses on the changes in the religious landscape of Ravenna, a former capital of the Late Roman Empire, through the Middle Ages. During this period, written stories about saints and their relics not only offered guidance and solace but were also used by those living among the ruins of a once great city—particularly its archbishops, monks, and the urban aristocracy—to reflect on its past glory. This practice remained important to the citizens of Ravenna as they came to terms with the city’s revival and renewed relevance in the tenth century under Ottonian rule. In using the vita of Barbatianus as a central text, Edward M. Schoolman explores how saints and sanctity were created and ultimately came to influence complex political and social networks, from the Late Roman Empire to the High Middle Ages.
