Dear medieval-religion list members,

Sherry Reames, President of the Hagiography Society, has kindly prepared this 
message on behalf us both. Apart from the fact that she and I have vested 
interests (i.e. our reputations and our shirts :-> ) in wanting you to attend, we 
also are convinced that it will be an intellectually stimulating symposium, 
combined with a relaxing sojourn spent in the rolling rural Somerset hills of 
England.

Please do come! If you're going to Leeds, for example, you can simply come a week 
earlier and spend the time with us.

George

         The symposium -- which is residential, meaning that all participants

afternoon, 6 July 1998, and end the late morning of Friday 10 July.  

         Besides the scheduled speakers, we can accommodate about 20 additional
