Treasure in Heaven, Treasures on Earth: the secular world and material consumption in Western European Monasticism, c. 1050-c. 1250.
This three-day interdisciplinary conference took place at Hatfield College, Durham University, on Wednesday 21st to Friday 23rd September 2016. Inspired by work produced as part of the ‘Religion and Money: the Economy of Salvation in the Middle Ages’ project and kindly funded by the Cultural Historical Museum, University of Oslo, the conference explored monastic economies in the central medieval period in Western Europe. It was organised by Rosalind Green and Stephanie Britton, both third-year PhD candidates at Durham in the Department of History.

FOR THE RURALIA XI CONFERENCE: The object of the conference is to discuss the various aspects of the relationship of the rural population to buildings and sites within and without rural settlement, where they practice their religion (Christian, pagan, Jewish…). This includes also several phenomena, traditions and practices which characterize the popular beliefs and religious practices. And it includes religious practices in burial rituals. The object of the conference is not the Christianization in the rural environment.
