A five-week seminar for fifteen college and university teachers on cultural aspects of medieval moral thought, to be held in Cambridge, England.

This seminar will examine the cultural construction of medieval moral thought using the categories of the Seven Deadly Sins, critically review scholarship on the sins, and make maximum use of the unique manuscript, research, and human resources available in Cambridge. The seminar will deepen the participants' appreciation for ways in which the medieval conception of morality was a response to varying cultural factors and make the study of the sins available for inclusion in the participants' regular university classes. The format of the seminar will combine individual presentations, guest lectures, and field trips to manuscript collections and parish churches; its results will be disseminated in sessions at conferences for medievalists.
