It is a pleasure to announce that the next meeting of the Columbia University Seminar on Medieval Studies will take place on Thursday October 26, 2017 at 5:30pm in the Faculty House. Dr. Susan Kramer will present “Exercising Divine Justice? Heresy, the Church, and the Death Penalty in the High Middle Ages“. Dr. Susan R Kramer earned her J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School and her Ph.D. in medieval history from Columbia.  Her book, Sin, Interiority and Selfhood in the Twelfth-Century West was published last year by the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies.  Much of the research for her current project is thanks to her year as a Visiting Fellow at Fordham University.

The talk will be followed by dinner at Faculty House at 7:00pm. All those who wish to dine with Susan Kramer after the talk must make reservations by contacting the rapporteur of the seminar, Carly Quijano at cjq2101@columbia.edu by Tuesday, October 17th.
