Speakers: Jane Beal, Univ. of California, Davis; Jane Chance; Susan Signe Morrison, Texas State Univ.; Katherine Durham Oldmixon, Huston-Tillotson Univ.; Joseph Ricke, Taylor Univ.

Original poetry read by medievalist scholars and established poets, followed by discussion of how references to medieval literature and art engage the personal. In Incarnadine, Mary Syzbist transformed and humanized the Virgin Mary by drawing on troubadour poetry and Cathar heresy. Presenters find inspiration in dream vision, Arthurian romance, saints’ lives, Beowulf, and Corpus Christi plays.
