Please join us for our first workshop of the year!
Prof. Michael Allen (Department of Classics, University of Chicago)
“The Letter-Book of Lupus of Ferrières”
12:00-1:30pm on Friday October 8th in Wieboldt 207
Lupus of Ferrières (ca. 805-862) was one of the great Classical Scholars of the Carolingian Renaissance. His activities as teacher, book-borrower, abbot, and scribe affected the shape and survival of major works we still read. A collection of his letters assembled near the time of his death provides a unique window into that activity over thirty turbulent, but fruitful years. For their style and content, the letters have counted as classics. Fresh study shows what more they have to tell about Lupus, his times, and his readers.
Coffee and tea will be provided, and we invite you to bring your lunch.
