The rights of lay Christians, clergy, and even the church itself were
accommodated in secular law in a number of ways. This session will engage
recent work on the complicated, interwoven relationships between medieval
legal and religious traditions.
The organizers invite papers from a variety of disciplines (including
literary studies, legal history, and cultural and institutional history),
and especially work which investigates specific instances of attempts by
lawmakers or clergy to enforce, expand, or curtail religious practice or
ritual.

Please send abstracts of 250-300 words along with a brief cover letter to:
