The Workshop on Late Antiquity and Byzantium is pleased to announce our next meeting:
Rome and Its Visitors in the Early Middle Ages:
the Itinerarium Einsidlense Reconsidered
Michael I. Allen
Associate Professor of Classics and the College, and Associate in History
The manuscript usually known as the Itinerarium Einsidlense is a small book with a large reach. Our only source for certain inscriptions and visitors’ itineraries of early Medieval Rome, the task of adequately and coherently representing its content has remained unfulfilled; reflecting more, and nearer to the parchment, on its content, inner workings, and possible hidden workings brings us closer to some real contours of friendship and duty toward the past, and as pilgrim in the present.
Tuesday, October 4 — 4:30 pm in CWAC 156
We look forward to seeing you there!
