October, 13-14, 2023. There Will Be Blood: The Medieval Blood Conference C. 1000-1150, Cambridge, St John’s College. Medieval blood was life and death, sickness and health, salvation and damnation, brotherhood and otherhood. Blood was at the beating heart of many traditions of medieval thought, which this conference will explore over two days of stimulating panels and discussion at King’s College, Cambridge. The theme is both rich and inherently interdisciplinary, and we warmly invite speakers from various backgrounds with interests including but not limited to the following areas over the period c.1000- C.1450:

  • Devotional literature
  • Medieval medical theory and practice
  • Visual depictions of blood Kinship and consanguinity
  • Blood in apocalypticism
  • Menstrual blood
  • Eucharistic theology
