Call for Papers for ICMS Kalamazoo 2022:
“Religious Communities across Time & Space” Roundtable
This roundtable, inspired by the theme of the 2022 Marco Symposium, offers comparative exploration of premodern religious communities across and within confessional traditions in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Central questions include: what tensions and comforts emerged from efforts to live deliberately within global communal systems (oikumene, ummah, ecclesia) and local communities (mosques, monasteries, synagogues)? How did interactions between distinct religious communities contribute to their identities? How did daily practice within religious community shape memory and ethnicity? How did heresy, conversion, or apostasy complicate community?
Session sponsored by the Marco Institute for Medieval & Renaissance Studies.
