All are welcome at a series of workshops sponsored by the European Research Council funded project, ‘Authority and Innovation in Early Franciscan thought (c. 1220-45)’, which is directed by Dr Lydia Schumacher, Senior Lecturer at King’s College London and Visiting Fellow at All Soul’s College. The workshops will explore in depth the Summa Halensis, a collaboratively authored text by early Franciscan scholars, which laid down their intellectual tradition for the first time.
