CACSSS seminar room G27A, O’Rahilly Building, University College Cork
Cork, Irlande

A one-day symposium on the theme of ‘Mendicants on the Margins’ will take place at University College Cork on the 27 June 2018. It is organised as part of the IRC-funded project ‘Spiritual Infrastructure, Space and Society: The Augustinian Friars in Late Medieval Ireland’. Speakers from Ireland and abroad will tackle a variety of aspects relating to the geenral theme on Mendicants on the Margins, from mendicant orders in geographical margins, the lesser-known orders such as the Augustinian friars, female communities and the Franciscan Third Order, to mendicant communities on the margins of the traditional model of urban mendicancy, such as foundations in non-urban environments, and aspects of mendicant studies challenging the traditional historiography of mendicant orders.

Attendance is free, but let us know if you’d like to attend by emailing
