Memories and Models: St. Elizabeth of Hungary in the Eyes of Her Handmaids


Location: 715 Hesburgh Library, Medieval Institute Reading Room

Kenneth B. Wolf, John Sutton Miner Professor of History and Associate Dean of the College, Pomona College (Claremont, CA)

Prof. Wolf’s research has focused on the Christian-Muslim interface in medieval Spain, Sicily, and Southern Italy (Conquerors and Chroniclers of Early Medieval Spain, The Deeds of Count Roger and of His Brother Duke Robert Guiscard).

He has also written a critique of St. Francis of Assisi and the kind of poverty-based sanctity that he personified (The Poverty of Riches: St. Francis of Assisi Reconsidered).

A short reception will follow the lecture.
