“The Mystical Presence of Christ: Late Medieval Issues, Texts, and Contexts”

Richard Kieckhefer, Northwestern University

This is a project on which Professor Kieckhefer has been at work for the past couple of years, a thoughtful effort to enter into and grasp from within what can seem an almost incomprehensible array of texts and teachings in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries.

“Woodworms and Ant-lions: Preaching Reform through Psalter Commentary in the Thirteenth Century”

Theresa Gross-Diaz, Loyola University Chicago

This paper will extend Professor Gross-Diaz’s well-known twelfth-century work on exegesis into the thirteenth century and a different set of Parisian masters, in this case especially the Psalms commentary of Jean d’Halgrin of Abbeville.

Organized by John Van Engen, University of Notre Dame.
