THE IMAGE OF PIETY IN MEDIEVAL MANUSCRIPTS IN SLOVAKIA AND IN EUROPE
8th-9th October 2020, University Library in Bratislava, Klariská ul. 5, 811 05 Bratislava
Medieval written sources are one of the basic pillars of world cultural heritage. In the European context, their oldest part was influenced by the Christianisation process that predominantly shaped medieval society, culture, and education. The aim of the conference is to provide an objectively and scientifically relevant assessment of the analysed sources and historical processes. The thematic scope of the contributions is focused on research about medieval piety in a written culture in Slovakia and in Europe from the second half of the 9th century to the beginning of the 17th century. According to an interdisciplinary basis, this conference shall systematise current notions about religious expressions and habits in various social and cultural environments (towns, Church institutions, single individuals) through primary and secondary sources.
