Every year we provide a number of special events that are sure to enhance your conference-going experience:


We are excited to offer two tours that will showcase the history of our host city. Join us for a walking and driving tour of beautiful downtown Saint Louis. A member of the local preservation society will tell the story of St. Louis through the city's many architectural landmarks. The group will have lunch downtown before returning to campus. Following the downtown tour a group will convene at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis. Boasting one of the largest collections of mosaics in the Western Hemisphere, this awe-inspiring space is not to be missed!

The cost of the downtown tour is $15. The tour of the Cathedral Basilica is free of charge, but if you are interested we ask that you please sign up when you register for the Symposium so that we can estimate attendance.


Our book exhibit will feature a wide variety of publishers and other vendors. Many of the most recognizable names in scholarly Medieval and Renaissance publishing will have their latest and most popular wares on display and available for purchase.
