The Syon Abbey Society Inaugural Sponsored Session at Kalamazoo 2011

The Syon Abbey Society Inaugural Sponsored Session at Kalamazoo 2011

“Syon Abbey and Its Neighbors”

We are looking for papers on the relationship between Syon and any neighboring communities that influenced or were influenced by Syon's prominent role in the religious culture of fifteenth- and sixteenth-century England. For instance: Sheen Charterhouse, the royal court, local lay readers, aristocratic patrons, visiting pilgrim populations, urban manuscript workshops, and London print shops; likewise, Syon's neighbors close at heart but further afield - the Bridgettine motherhouse at Vadstena, the Bridgettine houses across Europe, and Carthusian houses across England and abroad - and its neighbors after the Dissolution: sympathetic Continental communities in the Low Countries, France, and Portugal.

Organizers: Laura Miles (Yale) & Alex Da Costa (Oxford)

Please email to submit an abstract or for more information.


This new society, founded in 2009, aims to promote the study of the history and literature of Syon Abbey through sponsored conference sessions and a semi-annual newsletter distributed online. Membership is free.
