The programme for Conversations with Angels, 9-10 September 2005, at CRASSH Cambridge has now been finalized. Colour details and a registration form are available at: http://www.crassh.cam.ac.uk/events/2004-5/angels.html.
Convenors: Lauren Kassell (University of Cambridge) Joad Raymond (University of East Anglia)
In medieval and renaissance Europe angels were a topic in which theology, natural philosophy and politics converged. This conference will bring together historians of these fields and critics working on visual, musical and literary representation, to consider medieval and renaissance concepts of the nature, office and significance of angels, and the ways in which literal and figurative dialogues with angels were conducted.
