St. Robert Southwell, S.J. Lecture–”Europe’s Mother: The Virgin Mary in the Public Sphere”
Miri Rubin, Professor of Medieval History and Head of the School of History Queen Mary, University of London
After the year 1000, the figure of the Virgin Mary became central to the devotional lives of the religious, and, gradually, to those of the secular clergy and the laity too. This lecture will explore the public face of the Virgin Mary, its place in the public sphere, and the collective interactions it inspired in the later medieval centuries.
