The goal of the symposium is to promote serious scholarly investigation on all topics and in all disciplines of the medieval and early modern worlds.
The Symposium is held on the beautiful midtown campus of Saint Louis University, hosted by the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. On-campus housing options include affordable, air-conditioned apartments and a luxurious boutique hotel. Inexpensive dorm meal plans are available.
The plenary speakers for this year will be Peter Brown, of Princeton University, presenting "Constantine, Eusebius and the Future of Christianity" and Andrew Pettegree, of St. Andrews University, presenting "Writing the History of News."
