Monastic Europe – International Conference
Conference to be held 22nd – 25th August in Ennis, Co. Clare. Located in an area rich with the medieval buildings of the European monastic orders, the conference will balance sessions of papers with a number of site visits, and will stimulate a focused academic debate on the impact of monasticism in shaping the development of the physical environment across Europe between c.1100 and c.1700.
The conference will take place in the Temple Gate Hotel between Saturday 22nd and Tuesday 25th August, with a reception in the Ennis Franciscan Friary on Saturday and conference dinner in the Cloisters Restaurant on the Sunday. It is hoped to have 150 attendees at the conference, from Ireland and abroad, ranging from well-known academics to students and local history enthusiasts.
