medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

Lewys Morgannwg's claim (in 'I'r Wyry Fair o Ben Rhys', To the Virgin Mary of Penrhys) that 'Cawson ynfydion fedydd' (the mad or foolish ones have had a baptism) is generally understood to mean that they were bathed in the water of the well. You'll remember it has a small plunge pool in the well chapel.

Dear All

Well, here's a couple of items for Shan and others. I'm preparing a pilgrimage conference paper for publication and I'd be delighted to add to my stock of cases in which

(a) a stream flows under a church or other religious building, feeding a pool in the building held to be efficacious in aiding cures

(b) mentally ill people seek a miraculous cure which involves being plunged into cold water (with or without the saying of mass)

Kind regards

Graham

We have been a bit quiet lately, haven't we - I have a suspicion that more and more people are discussing things on Twitter (we've had a lengthy thread on reuse of medieval tomb carvings, for example).

I think, Shan, that what we discuss depends on what people raise - over to you!

Right on, Shan.
 
I for one would love to see more on medieval science, technology and communication (both texts and artifacts). I'd also like to see more on Jewish and Moslem perspectives and influences, especially in places and times where co-operation predominated over conflict.

It is possible I have been on this list at a bad time when only a narrow range of topics has come up.
It doesn't appear to be about mediaeval religion and history. It's just about Christianity and very narrow areas of that. There is a wealth of political perspectives on the Church, its contests with the secular society, its treatment of common people, its heresies. None of that appears here.
