Colloque – Communal Life of Women Religious: Authority, Legitimacy, Recognition

Ort : Basel
Veranstaltungsort : Departement Geschichte, Hirschgässlein 21, Seminarraum 1
Veranstalter / Société d’Études Interdisciplinaires sur les Femmes au Moyen Âge et à la Renaissance (SEIFMAR)
Datum : 26.05.2017 – 27.05.2017

Klöster und Stifte verfügten im vormodernen Europa häufig über weitreichende Macht – nicht nur religiöser sondern auch politischer und wirtschaftlicher Art. Dies galt auch für Äbtissinnen – die als Feudalherrinnen Priester beriefen, Recht sprachen, Steuern erhoben und im Heiligen Römischen Reich mitunter Stimmrecht im Reichstag hatten.

Die internationale Tagung geht Fragen nach dem politischen und gesellschaftlichen Einfluss mächitger weiblicher Klöster und Stifte nach. Im Zentrum der Betrachtung stehen dabei die Formen der Macht und der Einflüsse sowohl innerhalb und außerhalb der Klostermauern.
