"Genus Regale et Sacerdotale"
The Image of the Bishop Around the Millennium
An Interdisciplinary Conference at the University of Chicago
October 28-30, 1999
This conference will address the varied images of the bishop created around
the turn of the millennium, c. 900- 1050. In particular, it is meant to
examine the changing function and significance of the bishop in this
period, as revealed by the various ways - political, historical,
theological, legal, ritual, artistic, or literary - in which bishops
represented themselves and were represented by those around them. Our
distinguished keynote speakers - Michel Parisse (Université de Paris I -
Sorbonne), Hiltrud Westermann-Angerhausen (Schnütgen Museum-Köln), and
Arnold Angenendt (Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität, Münster) - will be
joined by over thirty presenters from Europe and North America.
Registration for the conference is $20 for students, $35 for faculty and
other professionals. Registration forms, as well as complete information
on the conference, transportation, and lodging are available at our website or by mail.
