Reuter Lecture 2011 Event

6 June 2011
Humanities University of Southampton

Event details

The Reuter Lecture was instituted in 2004 in memory of Timothy Reuter, late Professor of Medieval History at the University of Southampton. In keeping with Tim's own diversity of interests, the Lecture each year addresses a comparative theme across region, period or discipline. The lectures are published by the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Culture.

This year's Reuter Lecturer will be Professor David D'Avray.

Professor D'Avray has worked on medieval marriage, preaching, attitudes to kingship and death, and rationalities. He is currently working on royal annulments and papal dispensations, instrumental ethics in the Middle Ages, and structures of papal history from the fourth to the sixteenth centuries.
