in Late Antiquity

and the Early Middle Ages

Wednesday 1 to Friday 3 October 2008

The period from late antiquity to the early middle ages was one of great social movement, of both individuals and people groups. How did people respond to demands made upon them for hospitality and charity by pilgrims, casualties of war, refugees, orphans, widows, those of other religions, the sick, the poor, itinerant monks and nuns, travelling traders and others?
