Following on from the symposia held during last academic year, and at the request of those who contributed to these two lively and informative events, I have put together a further one-day programme on aspects of the Anglo-Saxon Church in the Tenth and Eleventh Centuries. The subject in January 2007 was What do we mean by the Benedictine Reform? and in March 2007 it was The Secular Church in Eleventh Century England. This third symposium will embrace the monastic and the secular church across the tenth and eleventh centuries.

The speakers are Julia Barrow (Nottingham), Jesse Billett (Cambridge), Richard Gameson (Durham), Catherine Karkov (Leeds), and Tom Pickles (Oxford).

There will be opportunity for some questions after each paper, and there will be a round-table discussion at the end of the day.

Postgraduate students are most welcome.

Anyone who wishes to attend is requested to complete the registration form below, and return it to Professor Hill, at the School of English, University of Leeds, Leeds LS2 9JT by 14 December 2007.

Please circulate this information and the accompanying form to colleagues and students.
